Mommy has been in the kitchen

I have been asked to share some of my I thought I would share the two I made last night - A new one and a favorite!!

Sweet 'N Sour Meatball Simmer

This was adapted from the Kraft recipe but I made a couple of changes!!

16-oz. pkg. frozen prepared homestyle meatballs
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 orange pepper
1 yellow onion
3/4 cup apricot jam
3/4 cup KRAFT CATALINA Dressing
4 Tbsp. soy sauce
3 Tbsp. ground ginger
2 Tbsp. garlic powder


COMBINE all ingredients in large skillet; cover.

COOK on medium-high heat 10 min. or until meatballs and vegetables are heated through, stirring occasionally.

SERVE over hot cooked rice or pasta, if desired.

Next time I will add a can of pineapple chunks! This was super easy and super delicious! I will be making this again!!

Now for a favorite!! I have made this a lot!!!

Mom's Banana Bread

adapted from Cooking Light's recipe...but of course I made some changes...beware - with my changes it is not as light of a dish :-)
