Green Mac and Cheese

Green Mac and Cheese
Mac and cheese is the ultimate comfort meal for Mandi and me. We make it when it has been a rough day, or on a Sunday night to relax. It is very easy to make, super addicting when you eat it, and the best thing is there are always leftovers to bring in to work for lunch. We wanted to make some a few days ago so I looked at the site to see what Mac and cheeses I have done on here to make sure we made something different I would be able to post. I was surprised to find only 2 (full) mac and cheese recipes! We brainstormed this one over email in the afternoon and feasted on its amazingness that night. Pretty basil flower. We are using the tops of broccoli in this meal, but don't toss out that beautiful stalk! This is some sausage I had in the freezer. A food processor would be better, but I was able to blend this up well after a few times of shutting it off and pressing everything down. Everything ready to go. Onions, Broc-stalk, salt, pepper, cayenne. Meanwhile, Mandi made some breadcrumbs.

Recipes all natural red velvet brownies You know the expression, “beat a dead horse?” I’d say it’s probably time I moved on from the all-natural red velvet cake thing, but a lot of you keep asking for brownies, so read on, my friends, and I’ll give you my recipe. But first, I want to turn your attention to the sidebar. Not too long ago, it read: “I’m Jaime, a single mom of three. I love the classics, French pastries, and British accents. DIY Cookie Treats We shared our cookie party post last week, and in case you missed it, here it is again along with some quick and easy cookie DIY treats! What’s a party without yummy treats? With the help of some fabulous refrigerated cookie dough, we made a bunch of delicious cookie creations! ...stumbled upon yesterday was a list of interesting drinks. I told you guys that I'm wasting a lot of time nowadays looking at pretty pictures and interesting ideas on Pinterest.I already have a bunch of different boards for all kinds of stuff - be it food or interior design. But I especially liked the idea of someone making up Harry Potter related drinks. And then I googled the term and came up with a bunch of interesting stuff. So I'm going to share only a couple of them with you guys (I know that this won't be the favorite topic of a bunch of you, but check them all out. Maybe you'll find something you like.), because there are a LOT of them out there. These next ones are my favorites out of all the ones I saw till now.

LaSaGnA TiMpAnO I went to see tUnE-yArDs on Monday night with some friends, and as always we wanted to cook a meal that somehow related to the show we were heading to. Sometimes this is hard to do, but other times it seems to come naturally. Finding culinary inspiration in Merrill's lyrics seemed like it would be tough, but my sister knew what she wanted to make without hesitation. "How about something layered, because of all the vocal and instrument layering in the music?" From there we worked together to come up with this deep, colorful, and multi-flavored lasagna version of a timpano. If you are using words like deep, colorful, and multi-flavored to describe something inspired by tUnE-yArDs, you already know you got it right!

50 Slow Cooker Recipes Life is busy around my house. Even though I have young kids, we are working on potty training, sharing, walking and just staying safe :) Toddlers are such a crazy and fun age! School is back in session, or almost back in session, and I am sure life is or will get busy taking kids to school, sporting events, extracurricular activities and pretty much anything that comes with the hustle and bustle of life. My mom was/is a huge fan of just throwing something in the crock pot in the morning and not having to worry about dinner the rest of the day. Thankfully, she has passed down that love to me!

Not Derby Pie I rarely buy cookbooks. That probably comes as a surprise, considering how much I love to cook, and how pretty cookbooks can be — but I just don’t buy them that often. That’s partly because I tend to browse for recipes online, and partly because, not being able to help myself, I take all the pretty ones of the shelf at Barnes and Noble and before I know it, I’ve already looked at every pretty picture and no longer have any interest in buying the darn things. On the rare occasion that I actually shell out the cash for one, the self control and patience I’ve been cultivating for years run out in a matter of seconds. I plop down on the couch, open the thing up, and soak up every last picture. Yes folks, that’s why they call it food porn.

saucy's sprinkles (bloggedy blog blog): {simply} sweet It's so simple, it's silly. Everyone has probably seen it or done it already, but Saucy just felt like stuffing her raspberries with dark chocolate and white chocolate chips today. As if the raspberries weren't sweet enough. They're cute on their own or they'd be even cuter on ice cream. The Web’s Best Recipes With Bacon Seeing as how just about every recipe you come across these days includes bacon in one way or another, composing this list was a bit of a challenge.
