Cheese is the best way to consume dairy. Versatile and complex, cheese is my favorite food.

The Mac and Cheese Experiment - 1 - Classic Mac


A few weeks ago, I had a craving for mac and cheese. But, with this blog, I needed to make it interesting. So, I decided to determine how to make the best mac and cheese.

Mac and Cheese is one of my favorite things. Cheesy-salty, gooey-delicious. I'm not sure whether it's objectively good or if the flavor so ingrained in my psyche that I am simply one with the mac. It completes me.

Chili Mac


It's not all epic concoctions here. Sometimes, I'm in the mood for something bad for me. But, even the bad food has good things to know.

But, I used only half of the lasagna noodles I bought, so I decided to make a classic lasagna like Grandma used to make (for Christmas, I swear, we had Christmas lasagna. I love you, Grandma).

A classic lasagna is only barely more difficult than Spaghetti Bolognese. It takes all the same ingredients, adds some cheese, and bakes it like a cassarole.
