The other day, my wife and I were jonesing for something cheesy for dinner, and so I took to looking for a healthy “mac and cheese” recipe to satisfy our taste for all things cheesy, while keeping it nutritious. I found a recipe for Broccoli Mac and Cheese in my Good Housekeeping 400 Calorie Meals cookbook, and gave it a whirl. Admittedly, I altered the recipe a bit to suit the types of cheese I had on hand (and to use a different pasta noodle other than macaroni). But after all was said, done, and baked, the end result was nothing short of delicious. If you’re in the mood for some homemade “mac and cheese”, give this recipe a shot — it’s sure to satisfy your craving for all things cheesy!

Tonight, my parents were in town visiting after they hosted us for Thanksgiving, and my mom and I teamed up to tackle a new recipe for my 50 in 15 Challenge. And after listening to my dad’s Thanksgiving sermon on Wednesday night, in which he reminisced about his late mother who would’ve been 98 years old this Thanksgiving, I was inspired to make one of her famous dishes — Chop Suey. But there was a catch: No one has the actual recipe. She had it in her head, and just made it from memory. So up front, I knew there was no way to replicate it to give my dad a completely accurate representation of one of his favorite childhood meals. But after some recipe searching and brainstorming with my mom, we came up with a recipe that was at least darn close to what they remember from grandma. The end result was a delicious, healthy, and comforting dish. And more importantly, it got a thumbs-up from my dad, who was delighted with our nod to his mother.
