Cheesy Enchiladas

This recipe of cheese enchiladas is a hit at our house.  The cream cheese adds a little twist and gives it a bit more flavor.  My daughter loves to make fresh salsa. So we topped them off with fresh Pomegranate Salsa that she made.

Cheesy Enchiladas
4 cups shredded cheese
1 8oz. package cream cheese, softened
2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup onions, minced
tortillas, use what ever kind you like. (I made 10)
Enchilada Sauce
1/2 to 1 cup more shredded cheese.

Mix 4 cups cheese, cream cheese, garlic powder and onions together.  It will be the texture of stiff playdough.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat bottom of a 9 x 13 casserole dish with a bit of sauce. 
With your hand grab about 2 Tbs. of the cheese mixture and form it into a log shape.

 Roll tortilla around the log and place in the pan.

Repeat for the rest of the tortillas.

Pour the remaining sauce over the top, spreading to cover.
Sprinkle with 1/2 to 1 cup of shredded cheese over the top. 

Cover and bake for 20 minutes. Take off the cover and bake for 10 more minutes or until hot and bubbly.

This also is a good freezer meal.
My tortillas from Costco were to big for the pan.  I had to cut off a small portion of the end. 
I used about 1 lb. of  shredded cheese.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
