Cooking with Katelin.

by katelin on October 15, 2009

Since I had Monday off I decided I wanted to cook something fun. I went through a ton of Real Simple recipes I’d kept around until I found one I really wanted to try. And what was the winner you ask? Macaroni and Cheese with Cauliflower. Sounds delicious right? Yeah well it was. Here’s what the magazine says it should look like:

And this is what it turned out to be:

Not too bad actually. It was pretty delicious I gotta say. It wasn’t too hard to make, the cauliflower added some healthiness to it and some unexpected bites which was fun. I’d definitely recommend this recipe to anyone who loves some cheesiness.

Matt and I also added some chicken to have on the side/mix in with it and it was a great addition.

So yeah basically this post is just all about how I only slightly burned a pan, made a delicious meal, and am obsessed with everything mac and cheese. So props to me, the chef in making! Wahoo!

Any cooking accomplishments for you lately?

happy thursday!

No two mac n cheese dishes taste the same. My mom layers the top of hers with sliced tomato. I put in a small amount of cubed potato which I cook with the macaroni before I put the dish together. We had it last night with bacon bits added. My kids would kill me if I added cauliflower because they are not big veg. fans!

Recipes NEVER turn out (visually) like the picture in the cookbook, but as long as it was tasty, it's all good ;)

Yum. I don't like cauliflower so maybe I'd add some broccoli. I definitely love broccoli + chicken + cheesy pasta though! Is there a website link for the recipe perhaps? =)
