Chili & Cheese Macaroni
Comfort food is always welcome on the table. In our house, we love macaroni and cheese along with the different variations. To prove it, I shared 12 mac & cheese recipes along with a version using buttermilk not too long ago. So here's another version to add to our growing list of mac & cheese variations. This time, I incorporated some favorite hot dog toppings, chili and cheese. This Chili & Cheese Macaroni brings together all the spice of chili and the creamy goodness of melted cheese.

Baked Zucchini Sticks and Sweet Onion Dip: that bloomin’ zucchini!
Today, class, it being late July and all, we’re going to examine our zucchini facts: •Zucchini is always at the end of any A-to-Z food list; •Zucchini and fruitcake are the undeserving targets of many a joke; •The zucchini plant literally grows like a weed, making it absolutely ubiquitous in vegetable gardens across America; •And for that reason, enterprising cooks have discovered ways to turn it into muffins, and cake, and pancakes, and… Baked Zucchini Sticks.

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.
Gingerbread Cupcakes with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe at Epicurious
Preparation Into a bowl sift together the flour, the ground ginger, the cinnamon, the cloves, the allspice, and the salt. In another bowl cream 1/2 stick of the butter, add the granulated sugar, and beat the mixture until it is fluffy. Beat in the molasses and the egg, beating until the mixture is smooth. In a measuring cup combine the baking soda with 1/2 cup boiling water and stir the mixture to dissolve the baking soda. Stir the mixture into the molasses mixture (the mixture will appear curdled) and stir the molasses mixture into the flour mixture, stirring to combine the ingredients well.
I dreamed of this post for months. Literally. I’m not sure how the thought crossed my mind, but once it did, I was smitten. I must.make.Spaghetti.Nachos. And yet, I waited. For, well, months.
Cruft: Lasagna Cupcakes
When Intelligentsia Coffee opened in Pasadena recently, I was intrigued the lasagna cupcakes they served. The cupcakes are made by Heirloom LA, a catering business. About the size of a muffin, a single lasagna cupcake was a delicious meal. After seeing how much my daughter enjoyed them (she ate my entire cupcake and I had to order a second one), I decided I had to try making them at home.
Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread
I’m sorry. I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face. It’s not fair.
Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Gouda Cheese Sauce
This morning I was looking at my home page and I realized that there is a lot of orange sweet potato and pumpkin going on. Considering the time of year I think it is very fitting. Maybe I should go red and green when Christmas comes around? Got any green and red recipes that I can try out for Christmas? In keeping with the autumn orange theme I got the idea to try a sweet potato gnocchi covered in gouda cheese sauce.
