Pancetta Jalapeno Mac n Cheese

I have made many a Mac n Cheese (Gruyere Broccoli, Almost Fire Version, Jalapeno Bacon) and it is probably the cornerstone of my culinary career.  For Easter, it was requested that I make mac n cheese and I wanted to use the basic foundation and switch it up a bit so I added jalapeno which is an old and common friend, and introduced a new ingredient in pancetta.

Alfredo Lasagna

I was going to call this a white lasagna but as you will see there are plenty of ingredients that are not white.  Alfredo sauce was involved and I called on a previous recipe (which we featured twice) of ours for that.  I won’t say that this was that difficult, but it did take a while which was well worth it because it was “one of the best things I made in a while.”  That was an actual quote from Eileen about this great dish and I think she was right!

Grilled Roasemary Pork Loin with Apple Cider Au Jus and French Breakfast Radishes

I had a pork loin and some rosemary which is a combo that I fancy and also wanted to grill it while the weather was still so mild.  We also had some French breakfast radishes which I had never seen before to my knowing.  I kept the pork on the upper shelf of the grill and it seared and charred well while not cooking to quickly and drying out.  The radishes were sauteed and cheesed.  Sticking with the fall theme, I cooked down an apple cider sauce that was used like a dipping au jus.

Chive Butter Quickpost

This is a quick post because it is very simple but worth showing.  I used fresh chives from our garden and mixed them into softened butter and sent the butter back to the fridge to be available for many uses.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches

We and especially I never make desserts so this is a real rarity.  I love oreos and would say they are my favorite manufactured cookie so the cookie sandwich idea is a big hit with me.  I also love the ice cream cookie sandwiches that look like this.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to reconstruct oreos and am always a sucker when I see cookie sandwiches at street table bakeries like the ones they have set up in the Strip on weekends.  The cookies or icing were not too difficult to make, but I was a little slow since I don’t have much experience in baking.

Jalapeno and Bacon Mac n Cheese

If you know me or have been following, mac n cheese is one of my favorite dishes, one of the first things that I mastered, and comes up fairly often (Gruyere and Broccoli version, Fire version).  I have experimented with some different combinations and this was another, bacon and fresh jalapenos.  I also used Dreamfields low carb pasta (coupon and info here).  Check another addition to the growing mac n cheese library!

Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

This was the other superbowl dish.  Not as easy as the sausage dip, but not too bad.  They can be pan fried or baked, these were pan fried.
