I'm Addicted To...

Yes, I could end that statement w/ many things. Purses probably being at the top :) But what I'm referring to this time is my new favorite product to cook with:  Philadelphia Cooking Cream! I've told you about it before and have shared my recipes for Easy Skillet Lasagna and Chicken Enchiladas that both used different flavors. And if you like either or both of those, you will be just as excited about this as I was. I had one more coupon for the cream to use, so it was time to visit Kraft.com once again for some inspiration. This time I wanted to use the Italian Herb & Cheese flavor b/c, well, those three words are kind of like food groups to this family! The minute I took the lid off the tub I knew we were going to be good friends. I'm not kidding, I could probably eat it w/ a spoon or maybe even add a cracker or two. (I don't even know if it's meant to be eaten w/o cooking, but I was "taste testing" so it was okay.) This recipe makes a ton, and besides the cooking cream itself, has basic ingredients you probably have in your kitchen right now. So, once again, if you haven't tried the cooking creams yet, I urge you to. You won't be disappointed!

3/4 lb. ground beef
Salt and Pepper to taste

Bake @375 for 20 minutes or until warmed through and cheese melted.
