Cheese & Google. Best Inventions Ever?

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

My friends were up to a lot of interesting things last weekend. For example, a number of my former coworkers are in New Orleans for a meeting, no doubt consuming beignets & copious amounts of liquor in their spare time. And many of my blogger friends attended PBandTuna: The Revenge, a party of epic proportions back in the District.

Me? I was cooking.

That's right! The girl who formerly resided in a kitchenless apartment is slowly but surely learning to cook - or dying trying. I'm currently visiting my boyfriend in New Hampshire for the week, & he doesn't really know how to cook either, so we decided we'd try to be the Neelys together, except white & inept & attempting to make food with some semblance of healthfulness (read: less than three sticks of butter per meal).

So we got on the ol' Google & planned out a few meals, & on Saturday, we whipped up our first attempt: mac & cheese casserole. I know, I know. You're all like:
  • Kate, this isn't a cooking blog! I don't carrrre. Get back to doing whatchu do best: being judgy & taking photos of crazy people.
  • Kate, mac & cheese casserole cannot possibly fall into the aforementioned category of "some semblance of healthfulness." 

You would certainly be correct on the first count. And, uhhh, upon my re-checking the recipe's nutritional information, you'd also be correct on the second, though the recipe did include spinach, which is healthy, right? Anyway, this mac & cheese casserole? Was so delicious that I swear I'd be over the moon if it were served to me in a restaurant. Though I can't begin to describe how my happiness tasted, it looked something like this:

Because I love you, I'm going to share with you this heavenly recipe, obtained from We changed the recipe up a bit, which I indicated below on the somewhat shoddy "recipe cards" I attempted to create. So... go forth & cook. Eat well & prosper! And please forgive me for the cards' inconsistent font sizes. Which you probably wouldn't even have noticed, but now you will. Shoot. Anyway, EAT WELL & PROSPER.


  1. What? You have recipes? Philistine!!
    No good food ever has a recipe! I recently tried a bit of teriaki sauce in my famous molasses beans... heaven. no, there is no recipe... I can only share the general parts... and will only do so if you promise not to tell

  2. I love baked pastas! I'll have to give this a try =)

  3. Ha! That's actually a dish Eric an I like making together. Ours doesn't really have a recipe, but the secret (are you ready for this?) is using ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs on top! SO AMAZING.

  4. um, that looks AH-mazing. I have like a serious problem with mac and cheese, and now I am craving it for breakfast after seeing this post!

  5. I'd say you're off to a good start... you gotta take a slow path on mastering the art of cooking, you know? ;)

    I'll definitely try this recipe. It looks delicious!!

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  6. 1. You're boyfriend is adorable!

  7. oh my goodness, this looks delicious!!!!! i am thanking you in advance b/c i am SOO going to make it!!! i love the idea of those recipe cards~!! did you get that template from a site somewhere or make it yourself? i wana do that on my recipe posts hehe!!

  8. I don't care how bad mac & cheese is for me, I'm never (EVER, EVER) giving it up. It should be it's own food group of deliciousness.


Leave me some love.
