Keep your recipes organized…..

Nothing is more frustrating when you’re ready to start cooking then not being able to find your recipe. Keep things organized by finding a system for filing your recipes that you can keep close at hand in the kitchen. A great option is to buy one of those photo albums where you peel back a plastic sheet and underneath is a sticky surface. This makes recipes easy to find and at any time you can remove or replace them! You can also buy a Recipe Box with index cards for your recipes.

Today’s Menu: Italian Pasta Salad with Rotisserie Chicken


Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my day. 54 degrees to start the day with a high of 83 degrees and sunny. After my Tea I went to Meijer. I saw that they finally got some Jiff Peanut Butter back in stock, with a limit of 2 jars. All Jiff products have been off the shelves for a while because of a recall. Picked up a few sale items and a few things Mom wanted also. I stopped and picked up Breakfast for Mom on the way back and filled her car up with gas. Back home I watered the plants and lawn. Done for the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared an Italian Pasta Salad with Rotisserie Chicken.


I prepared a Italian Pasta Salad, made about noon today. It always taste even better after chilled for a while. A Light and tasty dish that includes Ronzoni Garden Delight Tri Color Rotini Pasta, Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. Prepared the Pasta according to the box and added all the ingredients and tossed until well mixed. Then refrigerated until ready to use.


Boiled the Pasta for 10 minutes and drained it. After it cooled I seasoned and added it with the Black Olives, Kalamata Olives, Hormel Turkey Pepperoni, Anchovies, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing, McCormick Italian Seasoning. I can’t wait to dig in!



While at Meijer earlier this morning I picked up a Rotisserie Whole Chicken. We love Rotisserie Chicken, delicious and easy to prepare. When it was time for Dinner I heated the oven on 325 degrees. Got a small baking pan and sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Took the Chicken out of the package and into the baking pan. Reheat it for 30 minutes. After the Chicken cooled a bit I pulled all the Chicken from the bones and it was ready to serve!



To serve made a bed of the Pasta and topped it with Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and some more of the Kraft Zesty Italian Fat Free Dressing. The Pasta Salad and Rotisserie Chicken are a perfect combination. The Kraft Italian Dressing provides some great flavor for the Pasta and the Rotisserie Chicken was seasoned perfectly! I enjoy Simple and Delicious Meals so much! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Coke Zero to drink.

Vanilla Soufflé Cakes with Molten Chocolate
Looking for a dessert the whole family will love? You’ve come to the right place. These delightful golden brown cakes are bursting with a rich chocolate sauce. And with six

individual cakes created, there will plenty for everyone at the table.

Preparation time: 1 hour and 30 minutes

Butter and sugar to coat ramekins
2 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons water
1 cup low-fat (2%) cottage cheese
3 eggs, separated
1/3 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup plus 6 pinches sugar

Yield: 6 servings
Serving size: 1 ramekin
Equipment: 6 six-ounce ramekins or custard cups

1. Butter the ramekins and coat with sugar, shaking out the excess.

2. To make the sauce: Combine the chocolate and water in a small heatproof bowl set in a skillet of barely simmering water. Stir frequently until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Place the bowl in the freezer for 30 minutes or more to firm up the sauce while you make the soufflé cakes.

3. To make the soufflé cakes (up to 3 hours in advance): In bowl of food processor, combine cottage cheese, egg yolks, flour, salt, and vanilla extract. Process until the cheese is perfectly smooth, 2–3 minutes. Scrape the mixture into a medium bowl. Set aside.

4. In a clean, dry mixer bowl, combine egg whites and cream of tartar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until soft peaks form when the beaters are lifted. Add sugar gradually and beat until stiff and glossy but not dry. Fold one-quarter of the egg whites into the cheese mixture. Fold in remaining egg whites. Pour batter into ramekins. Chill until ready to bake.

5. When the chocolate mixture is firm, use a teaspoon or a tiny scoop to form 6 chocolate balls. Refrigerate the balls on a saucer until needed.

6. To bake: Position a rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Just before baking, sprinkle the top of each soufflé cake evenly with a pinch of sugar. Center a ball of chocolate sauce on top of each cake (the chocolate will sink part way into the cake while baking). Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake 13–15 minutes until the soufflé cakes are puffed golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
