Ranch-Style Steak Kabobs

Wow!! It has been a fun and busy summer so far. We just got home from a fun 2 week trip to Utah. My boys and I LOVE to go 'home' to visit family and friends:)

Now that we are home and vacation is over at least for a couple of weeks, I'm getting back to cooking and blogging. This is another recipe that I got from Kraft Foods. My family REALLY enjoyed this one.

Ranch-Style Steak Kabobs
  • 4 new potatoes, cut in half **
  • 1/4 cup KRAFT Ranch Dressing, divided
  • 1 lb. boneless beef sirloin steak, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 8 cherry tomatoes

Directions: HEAT grill to medium-high heat. Cook potatoes in saucepan of boiling water 12 to 14 min. or until tender; drain. Cool slightly. RESERVE half of dressing. Thread meat, accordion style onto 4 skewers, alternating potatoes and tomatoes between folds of meat; brush with remaining dressing. GRILL 10 to 12 min. or until meat is done, brushing with reserved dressing the last 2 min.

**I used red potatoes that were a little large, so my son cut them into smaller pieces. Then, we had more potatoes than would fit our we just tossed the extra potatoes on the grill, brushed them with some extra ranch dressing and they were DELICIOUS!!

Frosty Orange Creme Layered Dessert

I love it when I receive my Kraft foods magazine. It is full of wonderful recipes and meal ideas. When I saw this recipe, I knew I'd be making it soon! My family and I LOVED this treat!! When I made mine I used a silicone bread pan instead of the regular bread pan. It worked great!! After the dessert froze I just 'peeled' the silicone pan away.

I am currently away from home and my pictures of this yummy dessert are on my computer at home, so I'm going to post the picture from Kraft Foods.

Frosty Orange Creme Layered Dessert
  • 2 cups orange sherbet or sorbet, softened
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed

LINE 9x5-inch loaf pan with foil. Spread sherbet onto bottom of prepared pan to form even layer. Freeze 10 min.

MEANWHILE, beat cream cheese in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Gradually add condensed milk and juice, beating until blended. Gently stir in COOL WHIP. Spread over sherbet in pan.

FREEZE 3 hours. To unmold, invert pan onto plate; remove foil.
