Over the years, I’ve developed a love-hate relationship with a little blue blox. Yes we have all had it, Kraft Dinner. There would be periods of time where I wouldn’t touch this stuff with a 10 foot pole and other times where I couldn’t get enough – give it to with ketchup, tuna, hot dogs, whatever, I just loved KD. Now, how many people out there have had the real meal deal? Probably not many, so why don’t you try this easy recipe for yourself and experience the magic of what Macaroni & Cheese is really supposed to taste like!
Let’s get to the recipe…

Today we have a special guest, the woman who made all of this possible…OUR MOTHER! Every year she makes this highly addictive, yet extremely simple Christmas treat known as “Crispix Mix”. Now the name doesn’t fairly represent how amazing this stuff is, but take a look at the pictures, try it yourself and believe me it is AMAZING!

How about another risotto everybody!? Now this certainly isn’t your typical risotto, it’s made to be more of an oatmeal/porridge styled meal, but it is soooo good! Here is the recipe that I sort of followed, but had to slightly modify as usual.

One of my favorite foods has to be fish – whether that’s because of my father’s fishing accomplishments or just because it tastes awesome – I just love it! Salmon and walleye are my two favorite fish to eat. On a recent trip to Costco, I convinced my mom to buy a fresh salmon steak so Bob & I could have a cook off. Both were delicious, mine was on the light, fresh tasting side with Bob’s tasting sweet and rich with hidden flavors of candied salmon. To those inexperienced chefs out there in the blog world, don’t fear salmon, it’s relatively hard to screw up and most people love it!
Festive Chicken Noodle Soup (for the Marathon Runner’s Soul)
Recently our mother ran her first half marathon (woot! way to go mom!) and had some of her running friends for a carb & protein loading party the night before. A part of their dinner was Beer Butt Chicken, so we took the carcasses (shouldn’t there be a better word than that for a cooking blog? That word sounds so morbid) and made some soup. So just remember friends, when the world gives you chicken, make some chicken soup or should we settle for the quote by Lady Gaga “Once you kill a chicken, you gotta make some chicken soup.”
