Why I decided to take on one of the hardest recipes to master as my first…I have no clue – but I did it, and it was awesome. Macaroni & Cheese with caramelized onions, butternut squash and bacon….yum. This would have been amazing as our Sunday dinner, except I was made the dessert first, the Mac & Cheese second and the appetizer last – I am a work in progress. Nevertheless, there were lots of leftovers, full tummies, and smiles on faces.
Mac & Cheese: http://pinchofyum.com/butternut-squash-mac-n-cheese-with-caramelized-onions-apples-and-bacon (tip – do not bake it..it tastes so much better creamy and cheesy!)
Parmesan-crusted Zucchini Sticks: http://bit.ly/R3Q6eg (tip – cut the zucchini chunks into another half…they are better for dipping!)
Cream cheese and chocolate chip dessert roll: http://cookiesandcups.com/chocolate-chip-cream-cheese-breakfast-cookies/ (tip – definitely put the prepared dough in the fridge overnight …I did not and they weren’t as good!)
During the cooking shenanigans, I took a stab at a few little crafty projects involving a pot holder, an old sweatshirt, and lots of jewels… good times.
I share with you my creations:)
