Shirley J's Homemade Mac & Cheese

By popular demand....the Retail Stores now have #10 cans of Elbow Macaroni*! YAY! Here is a delicious Shirley J recipe that I tried with the Elbow Macaroni! A quick and easy dinner!

Ingredients:

1 cup Shirley J Universal Sauce
4 cups of Water
1 package Ritz Crackers

Directions:
Put Honeyville's Freeze Dried Cheese into a bowl of water to start the re-hydration process. Don't worry about it completely re-hydrating because the sauce will finish the process.
Cook Elbow Macaroni according to package instructions. In another pot, combine water and Universal Sauce and bring mixture to slow boil. Remove from heat and place cheese (drained) directly into sauce. Stir. Once Macaroni is cooked and drained, combine noodles and sauce. Pour into a 9x13 pan. Crush Ritz Crackers and sprinkle on top.

Bake at 350 for 20-25 mins or until casserole is hot and bubbly.

*Please call your local Retail Store for pricing and availablity

Fruit Yogurt Salad

When my family gets together there seem to be certain dishes that always make an appearance.  Not in a bad way as in "we love them and want to eat them often" sort of way.  This salad is one of those for my family.  First off it is super delicious and when I recently tried it with Freeze Dried Fruits it was even easier to put together!

Ingredients:
1 cup Honeyville's Freeze Dried Bananas
3/4 cup Honeyville's Freeze Dried Strawberries
1/2 cup Honeyville's Freeze Dried Blueberries
1/2 cup Honeyville's Freeze Dried Raspberries
3/4 cup Honeyville's Freeze Dried Blackberries
8 oz Whipped Topping
2 lbs. Yogurt, any flavor but I like strawberry or peach the best (the 2 lbs is the big container you can get grocery store)

Directions:
Rehydrate the Freeze Dried Fruits.  I rehydrated all my berries together, but did the bananas in a separate dish because I didn't want the berry juice to influence their taste.  I let the fruit sit in the water for about 20 minutes and then drain them WELL.  In a large bowl, combine the yogurt and whipped topping.  Gently mix together until blended but avoid over stirring.  Fold in the fruit.

And that's it my friends--how easy-peasy is that?!?!  Trust me this dish will be gobbled up.  It's great as a side or sometimes we get all crazy and put them on top of Waffles for a gourmet twist. 


You really can use a variety of fruit, whatever your family likes.  I've done the salad with just bananas and strawberries or I've added peaches when using peach flavored yogurt.  I can eat this for breakfast or for dinner.  This Fruit Yogurt Salad is a crowd pleaser!

Happy Eating!





PS  The Retail Stores have my favorite Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix on sale through Saturday, June 25.  It's great for everyday but it is an easy thing to take with you camping because you just add water!

Pudding Pops

What's an aunt to do when babysitting some of the 4 cutest kids on the planet?  Well she's to spoil them with treats of course!  I told the kids when they came over they had a very important job to do--be my taste testing panel.  They took the job very seriously and came up with their own rating system.  They went with the thumb method and rated these Two Thumbs Up!  The youngest child (age 3) had evidence of the goodness from nose to chin.  Being messy never was so adorable!

I made pudding pops in the morning and they were ready to go by the time the kiddos arrived.


Recipe Adapted from Kraftfoods.com

Ingredients:
1 cup Honeyville's Pudding Mix, any flavor
3 cups prepared Honeyville's Milk Substitute
2/3 cup Whipped Topping
Optional Mix Ins: Honeyville's Freeze Dried Fruit, crushed cookies, etc.

Directions:
Blend together the Pudding Mix and the Milk.  Stir until smooth.  Gently fold in Whipped Topping and any Mix-Ins. 


Spoon into paper or plastic cups (about 1/2 cup in each cup). 


Insert a wooden Popsicle stick or plastic spoon for the handle.  I used plastic baby spoons.  Freeze 5 hours or until firm.

To remove pudding pops from cup run warm water over the outside of the cup for 10-15 seconds.  Push up on bottom of cup to release. 


I wanted a variety of flavors so when making the pudding I used 1/2 cup Vanilla Pudding mix and 1/2 cup Chocolate Pudding mix.  Also I didn't add any mix-ins until I was making the individual cups.  I added some rehydrated Freeze Dried Raspberries to my Vanilla Pudding cups.

These were very easy to make and the kids really liked them.  I was able to give them each a treat and send them outside to play.  Bring on the summer and thanks kids for being my taste testers!  A job very well done!

Happy Summer!

Mexican Rice

This side dish is DELISH (say that sentence out loud a few times!!)!! Okay, seriously...my family LOVES this recipe! I got it from my sister-in-law and just added some Honeyville flavor to it!

Mexican Rice
Ingredients:
2 cups Honeyville's Parboiled Rice (what is Parboiled Rice?? See below)
4 cups Chicken Broth
1/2 cup Honeyville's Tomato Powder + 1 1/4 cup Water (mix well)-equivalent to 1 small can Tomato Sauce
1/4 tsp. Cumin
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 Bunch Cilantro-chopped
2 Tomatoes-chopped
1 Tbsp. Oil

In a large skillet (with a lid) saute the rice in oil until the pieces are turning off white and a few pieces are tan. Usually just a minute or two. STIR CONSISTENTLY.

Stir in all ingredients (even the Freeze Dried and Dehydrated-will re-hydrate as rice is cooking). Cover, turn to low heat and cook for 20 minutes. 
I like to check the rice every 10 minutes to make sure there is enough water in there and it's not burning. You may need to add more water to allow the rice to cook all the way and the Onions & Corn to re-hydrate.

How to check the rice: use a spoon to move rice to the side so you can see the bottom of the pot, if there's no liquid, taste it and should be done.

Tip: This rice gets yucky if over-cooked. Served best if you don't stir it after cooking, just lightly transfer to serving dish
 Enjoy EVERY bite!!!

Parboiled Rice is rice that has undergone parboiling-it has been boiled in the husk. The benefit to this is the nutritional value is similar to Brown Rice (80% similar), but it has a shelf life of a White Rice. The best of both worlds!
