Revolutionary Mac & Cheese

Revolutionary Mac & Cheese
I found this recipe long ago and can’t believe I’m just now making it. The neat thing about this recipe, is you simmer the noodles in the milk instead of using water then adding it at the end. It’s cheesy and the mustard gives it a nice depth of flavor. It still doesn’t top the blue box for me (I know, I know but I just can’t help that I love it so much) but it is a great homemade alternative. I also made it a bit lighter by using skim milk, reduced fat cheese, and whole wheat pasta. Feel free to go that route or use full fat ingredients for a super indulgent and decadent meal or side dish.

Homemade Sun-Dried Tomatoes People have accused me of having a love affair with salt. My retort (which I usually keep inside my head) is that I just like things with flavor. A preference for food with, you know, lots of flavor, has led me to seek out dishes that have the absolute most taste per square millimeter, and that search has led to making sun-dried tomatoes — concentrated little morsels of tomatoes’ sweet-and-savory-ness — at home. Summer’s abundant tomato harvest begs to be preserved, and once you’ve exhausted tomato sauce, salsa, and ketchup, sun-dried tomatoes are a brilliant solution.

Singapore Chili Prawns As you probably already know, I am a bit of a shrimp fanatic and I am always looking for tasty new ways to enjoy shrimp. I recently came across a really interesting recipe for Singapore chili prawns on Almost Bourdain that sounded so good that it quickly pushed its way to the top of my to try list. Not that it takes much to get me interested in a shrimp dish but the two things that caught my attention with this recipe were the use of the sweet chili sauce and the egg drop. I picked up a bottle of sweet chili sauce a while ago and I really liked it but I have only used it a few times since. I was looking forward to using the sweet chili sauce with shrimp! A while ago, when I made the Chinese hot and sour soup I was introduced to the concept of slowly pouring an egg into a hot liquid while stirring.
