As a food blogger, I feel obligated to present my readers with a Thanksgiving assortment of classic recipes, modern twist, in delectable desserts. Problem is, I don’t cook Thanksgiving dinner (and to be 100% honest, I’m not down with pumpkin pie). That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a hearty scoop of mashed potatoes lathered in gravy right next to a mountain of stuffing all surrounding a perfectly prepared slice of turkey though. So, I’m going to do my best to present a few recipes before the big day that you may want to add to the assortment.
In late summer we discovered the joy of roasted cauliflower and I’ve been keeping it on hand ever since. It’s quickly become a favorite vegetable on our house and I’ve been looking for ways to use it as much as I can. Now, we all know Handsome doesn’t allow me to mess with his macaroni and cheese, but from time to time I can sneak a little something in.
I’m no dietitian, but this “lighted up” macaroni and cheese from Food Network magazine, would certainly full me if I were counting calories. Heavy cream, lots of cheese, and pasta – I’m pretty sure the only redeeming quality is the cauliflower. Either way, it made for a delicious meal and even better leftovers (when mixed with a little taco meat and reheated).
