John's Mac and Cheese

1 box of elbows
1 tsp salt
3/4 stick of real butter, unsalted
3 cups of shredded Cheddar
1 cup half and half
1/2 bar of cream cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dry mustard
4 eggs, beaten

1. Cook elbows according to package directions with the 1 teaspoon of the salt in the water. (Cook them fully; al dente noodles aren't what you're looking for with mac and cheese!) Drain and set aside; do NOT rinse.

2. Meanwhile, in a large sauce pan, melt the butter over low heat. Once it is fully melted, add in remaining ingredients. Stir constantly until fully melted. Do not allow to boil or the cheese mixture will curdle.

3. Combine elbows and cheese in a large bowl, stirring until completely combined.

Makes 8-10 servings.

The 'John' in the recipe is my mother's husband and the recipe is his!

Roasted Radishes

1 lb radishes, washed
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp minced fresh parsley

1. Preheat over to 450. Trim the top and stem ends off the radishes, then slice them in half.

2. Toss the radishes in the olive oil, and some salt and pepper.

3. Arrange them cut-side-down on a heavy, dark sheet pan (or in a cast iron skillet) and roast for about 10-12 minutes, until the white parts are just starting to brown, and the radishes can be pierced by a fork but are still firm.

4. Sprinkle on the parsley and garlic, and more salt if desired, and serve hot.

Serves 4.


About This Blog

I find recipes everywhere. Online. In magazines. In cookbooks. On the back of boxes. After a while, it got difficult to remember where I found (or stashed) a particular recipe when I wanted to make it a second time. With the goal of wrangling them all in one coherent location that was easy to find and navigate--along with multiple requests from friends for this recipe or that one--this blog was born.
