Every week on Food52.com , we're digging up Genius Recipes -- the ones that make us rethink cooking myths, get us talking, and change the way we cook. This week's installment: The key to perfectly creamy baked macaroni and cheese, courtesy of Martha Stewart . - Kristen Miglore , Senior Editor, Food52.com No matter how haggard we may feel about our the state of our country -- we, as a nation, will always have macaroni and cheese. It's a French sauce wrapped around an Italian dried noodle , shot through with cheese. And, according to legend, it was all magically brought together for the first time by Thomas Jefferson.
“Scalloped” is an attractive word, isn’t it? When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty. And of course scalloped potatoes also comes to mind, which carries my imagination to a land of crispy potato skins drenched in a sea of cheese and cream. I can think of no better place to exist, actually. So when I came across TK member Shelbi Keith’s recipe for Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes , I knew we were going to become fast friends.

Crock pot , slow cooker , call it what you will, but this convenient kitchen appliance is hotter than ever. No longer just for pot roast or some goopy dips (though there's nothing wrong with those either), you can make almost anything in your crock pot from breakfast to dinner , drinks and more. I just recently bought a crock pot because it seemed everywhere I turned someone was talking about something new and delicious they'd just whipped up in theirs. So I took the plunge and bought one.
This is my list of recipes I think everyone should know how to cook. These recipes will be the ones that I make sure my kids know how to cook before they leave the nest.

Hello you perfect game day snack. Or perfect dinner. Or perfect reheated I-just-came-home-from-the-bar snack. Or perfect hungover breakfast. Cold.
At 6PM last night, the last thing on my mind were cupcakes. Until I looked at this bowl of batter. After a magical food-and-wine filled weekend , all I wanted was a normal one-course dinner without 3 forks and 2 spoons. Since I was staying near the airport to gain easy access to my flight this morning, I dragged myself to the nearest restaurant and plopped down in the booth. I ordered, I ate and I even declined the dessert menu because surely nothing was going to taste as incredible as the vanilla bean panna cotta I ate twice this weekend.
We came up with this recipe when we opened Beecher's. We wanted to show our customers that you can cook with and eat great cheese every day, and this killer mac and cheese uses two of our cheeses with a background hint of garlic powder and chipotle pepper. We've already won the vote for Seattle's best Mac and Cheese, but the tens of thousands of people a year from all over the world who eat it in our store tell us it's the world's Best. serves 4 as a side dish SAUCE 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 3 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 1/2 cups whole milk 7 ounces Flagship cheese, grated (about 1 3/4 cups) 1 ounce Just Jack cheese, grated (1/4 cup) ½ teaspoon coarse salt ¼ to ½ teaspoon chipotle chili powder 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder PASTA 6 ounces penne pasta (about 3 ¼ cups) 1 ounce (1/4 cup) Flagship cheese, grated 1 ounce (1/4 cup) Just Jack cheese, grated ¼ to ½ teaspoon chipotle chili powder Instructions
Creating a romantic meal at home is a somewhat bigger challenge than your standard Monday-night fare. Especially if you haven’t yet cooked for this significant other — or, if you’re in a long-term relationship, haven’t cooked for them often. And especially when the occasion in question is Valentine’s Day.
Umm, so if you’re watching your weight, you may want to click back to the last page you viewed right about now…. I tend to cook healthy dishes most of the time, but decided to go all in on this one and it was so worth it! I was in the mood for some comfort food this week, and my cute little French Onion Soup bowls were begging to be used again , so I dreamed up this French Onion Mac & Cheese! Uh huh, cavatappi pasta mixed with a creamy fontina, asiago, and mascarpone cheese sauce and a healthy dose of caramelized onions (which just make everything better!). I didn’t stop there though. In order to mimic the soup, I filled up the bowls with my mac & cheese and topped them with some croutons and grated gruyere cheese.
This, friends, is where procrastination gets me. I was staring at the computer, mired in writers’ block. I clicked on that Stumble button I installed in my toolbar but never use.
Be forewarned. If you make these,they will disappear quickly! But that's okay.

I’m totally ready for fall. I’m ready for super comforting meals that I get to eat while sitting at home, in my sweat pants, with my slippers on! And I’m ready for Thanksgiving. Too soon perhaps? Considering the fact that it’s still about 80 degrees here in LA, I guess this Potato Romanoff dish will have to do
What is it about bacon & avocado that I absolutely love?? And these quesadillas… with their buttery, crispy, heavenly tortilla shells… are seriously yum. Don’t let the green scare ya, avocados have a really delicious taste. I promise they’re not just thrown in to “healthify” this recipe! ;) Quesadillas are one of our favorite quick and easy weeknight meals.
