Weekend Cooking Anyone

I know that I have talked about Kraftfoods.com before but I just have to share with you these great recipes I found.  I really like their website too.  It has a section that you can enter the food you have on hand and it will come up with a recipe for you to make with what you have....great idea!!

Check out this great side dish recipe...and you can make it right in the microwave!

Cheesy Spaghetti Squash
What You Need
1 large spaghetti squash (3 lb.)
2 Tbsp. KRAFT Reduced Fat Parmesan Style Grated Topping
1/2 cup KRAFT 2% Milk
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
2 plum tomatoes, finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Make It
PIERCE squash several times with fork or sharp knife to allow steam to escape. Microwave on HIGH 10 min. or just until squash is softened, turning after 5 min. Let stand 5 min.

CUT squash in half; remove and discard seeds. Use fork to scrape insides of squash to form strands; place in large bowl. Add remaining ingredients; toss lightly with fork. Spoon into 1 squash shell; discard remaining shell.

MICROWAVE 2 min. or until heated through.

Kraft Kitchens Tips
Make Ahead: Microwave squash and pull into strands as directed; place in microwaveable bowl. Refrigerate up to 2 days. When ready to serve, microwave on HIGH 3 to 5 min. or until heated through.

And take a gander at this dessert....holy cow do I want to make this right now!!

Under-a-Spell Red Devil Cake
What You Need
1 pkg. (2-layer size) red velvet cake mix
3 pkg. (3.3 oz. each) JELL-O White Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding, divided
1-1/4 cups water
1/3 cup oil
3 eggs
6 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
2 cups milk
1 tub (12 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
3 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1 Tbsp. butter

Make It
HEAT oven to 350ºF.

LINE 2 (15x10x1-inch) pans with foil. Spray with cooking spray. Sprinkle 2 clean kitchen towels with cocoa powder. Beat cake mix, 1 pkg. dry pudding mix, water, oil and eggs with mixer until well blended. Pour into prepared pans.

 BAKE 15 to 17 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Immediately invert cakes onto towels; remove pans and foil. Cut 1 cake crosswise into thirds; place on wire racks. Starting at one short end, roll up remaining cake with towel. Cool cakes completely.

 
BEAT cream cheese in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Gradually beat in milk. Add remaining dry pudding mixes; beat 2 min. until well blended. Whisk in COOL WHIP.

 UNROLL cake; remove towel. Cut cake crosswise into thirds. Spread pudding mixture over all 6 cake pieces. Reroll 1 cake piece; stand in center of large plate. Wrap remaining cake pieces, pudding-sides in, around first piece to resemble spiral, using flat cake pieces for outside layers.

 MICROWAVE chocolate and butter in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min. Stir until chocolate is melted and mixture is well blended; cool. Spoon around top edge of cake to cover outer cake pieces only, allowing glaze to drip down side. Refrigerate 2 hours or until pudding mixture is firm. Cut into wedges.

The dessert is a bit more involved but I think it will be well worth the time and effort.  I will let you know when I make these delicious looking concoctions.  If you make them first....do tell!

Have a great weekend!
