Macaroni and cheese. I am willing to bet that most people recognize those words together. Actually, those are two of my favorite things combined together into one delicious creation. Do you know what makes macaroni and cheese even better? Placing it into a muffin pan and baking it so it is in a portable, cup form. Oh, and adding a buttery, crunchy crust to it takes it over the edge.
It’s no secret that I love sweet scones. They are hearty, bready, and all around delicious. I’ve featured two sweet scones on my blog back in November (Pumpkin Scones with Spiced Glaze and Blueberry Scones). Both were a hit, and definitely on the “must repeat” list. However, scones are too delicious to only be sweet. So for this week’s soup, I wanted to make a delicious savory scone to go with it. Because what’s a soup without a hearty piece of bread for dipping?
It’s no secret
sometimes I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen. I especially have an affinity to the salty and sweet combinations. So, this recipe isn’t so much salty and sweet as it is tangy and savory. This also happens to be a flavor combination I enjoy. I was drawn to this recipe when I first saw it in passing. I have to say, this may be one of my favorite recipes I’ve made to date.
My favorite food is pizza. If I had to eat the same type of food every day, I would easily choose pizza. This post comes with something I’ve been waiting a little while to experiment with. It’s a twist on traditional pizza. I know, I know. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Well, pizza tends to be a little high in calories, therefore it is a little broke for me. So, I wanted to try something a little different and lower calorie. I’ve seen cauliflower crust pizzas, which I will eventually try. However, this is a pizza I haven’t seen around much in the social scene.
If you recall, earlier this week I made a delicious post about tomato bisque. I have always paired tomato soup with grilled cheese. However, this time I wanted to make something a little different. Don’t get me wrong. I love grilled cheese sandwiches. I just got a hankering for something different this time around. Part of this was inspired by a dear friend who sent me a recipe involving tomatoes on a grilled cheese. I decided to take it a little further.
Well, we all know I love pasta. It’s like I have a pasta disease, really. I just can’t help it. Pasta is a weekly must for me. I find pasta filling and definitely worth the calories when it is done correctly. I tried a little different pasta dish this week. It’s based around hearty rigatoni and creamy cheese. Yes, big surprise I used cheese. It’s also a disease I have… There is no cure for pasta and cheese disease. However, this dish comes pretty darn close at healing my ailments.
I’ve posted a few times about how I love Italian food. Pizza is probably my favorite food of all foods. I’ve probably said this as well. And yet I haven’t made pizza on this blog yet. I have some future plans for pizzas I would like to try, but this post comes with a recipe I have been making for a few years. It is a form of pizza, kind of. It tastes like a delicious pizza casserole of sorts. I’ve enjoyed this recipe for several years, and it is very easy to make.
