Gnocchi Mac & Cheese

Gnocchi Mac & Cheese
Ahhhh mac and cheese. Those mere words stir up feelings of comfort...home....the food you loved as a kid. If you asked a 100 people what their favorite comfort food was, I'm guessing close to half would say mac and cheese. I'm sure meatloaf and mashed potatoes are right up there too. Why is that the combination of cheese and pasta can make our mouths water? I'm all about trying different kinds of mac and cheese recipes and this one was no exception. I saw this one on Noble Pig's site and knew it would be in my oven. The gnocchi get's a little puffy in the oven and the cheese get's a little crunchy. It's heavenly. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Combine Gruyere and fontina, then add by the handful to milk mixture, stirring until melted before adding the next handful. Pour sauce over gnocchi and sprinkle with Parmigiano-Reggiano over top.

Skinny Mashed Potatoes Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving, but this year since I am pregnant and on a really strict low carb diet (for my diabetes) real mashed potatoes are out (bummer). I recently started researching alternatives to some of my favorite dishes because there is NO way my plate will be without a big ole pile of mash potatoes. I came across this recipe that uses cauliflower instead of potatoes. Hmmm not a big cauliflower fan so I wasn't sure. If there is a choice of either celery or cauliflower in a veggie dish 9 times out of 10 I will choose the celery.

Penne alla vodka recipe: Vodka sauce’s genesis is unclear, but its appeal is obvious. L.V. Anderson for Slate When you’re making pizza or lasagna, your formula for tomato sauce is so basic you don’t really need a recipe: sauté chopped onion and garlic in a little olive oil, add chopped or diced tomatoes, simmer until thick, la fine. Peanut Butter Cocoa Krispies Smores Bars I haven’t had real, good old-fashioned smores that are made over a campfire in far too long. Like about twenty years, give or take, but who’s counting. The last time I roasted marshmallows over a campfire was when I was a Girl Scout. I have memories of being too impatient to wait for the marshmallows to toast evenly and instead, I would intentionally dip my wooden stick, with splinter-filled marshmallows speared on it, directly into the flames.

Just as I was leaving the kitchen, I realized something. I left the shells with Adam. The One Black Bean Recipe You Must Make I make a big pot of these tangy, flavorful black beans at least once a month. They have become a major staple in my house and the best part is they are insanely easy (and cheap) to make. Eat them with fried eggs, salsa, and tortillas for a Mexican breakfast (aka huevos rancheros, see above) or serve as a side dish with chicken or fish.

The BEST Homemade Meatballs I'm sure you already have a Spaghetti and Meatballs recipe - everyone does. The key to making things that everyone makes - and already loves - is to make them the best. Every single time I make Spaghetti & Meatballs, Mike and I rave - oh, these are the best yet. If you have not tried to make you're own homemade meatballs, I really encourage you to. They are so so so easy - and so much better than anything you can buy. They are a staple around our house - usually on Sundays. Dinengdeng Recipe Dinengdeng or inabraw is a Filipino vegetable dish that originated from the Ilocos region in the Philippines. It is composed of different vegetables that are usually grown in one’s backyard. This dish has a similarity with bulanglang and laswa; the obvious difference of Dinengdeng is the use of fried or grilled fish.

Chicken Stuffed Shells Recipe I love stuffed shells… From Italian and taco stuffed shells all the way to chicken stuffed shells. Chicken stuffed shells are a great way to make good use of left over chicken. I have seen many different recipes all using different methods but I decided to try this one. I prefer Italian flavors over cream of mushrooms soup and such. Even though I am not a big fan of ricotta cheese a lot of it goes into this recipe. Not only does ricotta go into this recipe but mozzarella and parmesan cheeses go into it as well.
