Rosemary Mac & Cheese

What’s better than creamy, cheesy macaroni and cheese? Add rosemary and discover  how one little herb can transform this classic comfort food.

Rosemary Mac & Cheese

Remember when I told you about how Kita and I visited Peabody in Seattle? And the first thing we did was go to Lunchbox Laboratory to stuff our faces with burgers and get boozy milkshakes? Well, we had some killer rosemary mac and cheese with our meal and I’ve been dreaming of it ever since (along with pretty much everything else we ate during our visit). Adding rosemary to mac and cheese may not be the first thing you think of, but tastes like it was meant to be there all along. After much reminiscing of my taste buds, I finally gave in and made a homemade version, adapted from the Brussels sprout mac and cheese that I adored.

The mixture of white cheddar, goat cheese, and Parmesan in addition to the rosemary in this version is a force to be reckoned with. I was also really pleased with how well it reheated. I think the goat cheese helped with preventing the cheese sauce from separating, as it often does with homemade mac and cheese made without the use of processed cheeses.

Pumpkin, Sage & Sausage Stuffed Shells

Pumpkin and stuffed shells come together for the ultimate fall comfort food. Stuffed with sage pork, cooked in a pumpkin-tomato sauce, and topped with mozzarella and goat cheese.

Pumpkin Sage & Sausage Stuffed Shells 1

Fall baking involves a lot of pumpkin but what about its savory side? Savory pumpkin recipes make for excellent comfort food and one of my favorite comfort foods is stuffed shells. I have made stuffed shells with a pumpkin cream sauce before but this time around I used a pumpkin tomato sauce and stuffed the shells with sage pork instead of a meatless ricotta mixture. Then the shells are sprinkled with some mozzarella and creamy goat cheese. Both recipes are good for different reasons so you should probably make them both.

Goat Cheese Stuffed Bacon, Peach, & Basil Burgers

Be adventurous with this goat cheese stuffed burger topped with not only bacon but basil, peach chutney and even peach slices. You’ll be surprised how good it tastes!

Goat Cheese Stuffed Bacon, Peach, & Basil Burgers 1

Well that was quick. Just yesterday I mentioned that any day now someone will snatch me up for a job. Sure enough shortly after applying to a couple jobs yesterday morning I got a phone call from one asking to set up an in-person interview. An hour later I had a confirmation e-mail for an interview on August 18th! I should foretell things more often on this blog – it’s magical. I did just apply to two more perfect-for-me jobs O:-).

To celebrate this crazy turn of events lets have some fun with our food by combining meat and fruit into one crazy-awesome burger. This burger starts off decently normal with a little pepper mixed into the meat and bacon for topping but then you stuff some goat cheese in the patty and add peach chutney, peach slices, and basil on top. Sounds weird but tastes delicious. If you are skeptical assemble it with everything but the peach slices, but put them on the side to try. I bet they will end up on that burger if you give them a chance.

Goat Cheese Spinach Artichoke Dip

Spinach artichoke dip just got even better with the addition of goat cheese. This super creamy dip is perfect for any occasion.

Goat Cheese Spinach Artichoke Dip 1

This mini road trip of mine has been a lot of fun and I am so glad I thought of doing this on my way to Rochester, NY for my friend’s wedding. The only problem is figuring out how best to divide my time. Before setting out I thought I had it all planned out but of course every stop I make there never seems to be enough time and wish had an entire month instead of just one week. Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego now? Cleveland, OH! I hope to check out the location for their Tabletop board game cafe while I am there. But in the meantime, check out this dip.

Everyone loves a good spinach artichoke dip, especially the creamy sinful ones. I once made a healthier version using Greek yogurt but now it’s time to share it’s more devious counterpart – goat cheese spinach artichoke dip. Although it’s not too terribly unhealthy the cream cheese, goat cheese, mozzarella, and milk were all essential to creating this incredibly creamy dip. I started out by adding only 4 ounces of goat cheese but ended up adding the entire 8 ounce log because I simply love goat cheese. Apparently many other people share this sentiment with me as it was quickly devoured.

P.S. Thank you to my lovely hand-model, Sherrill!

Corn-Goat Cheese Omelet

Wake up with this savory omelet stuffed with sweet corn, creamy goat cheese, and fresh green onion. Easy enough to make even on a weekday morning.

Corn-Goat Cheese Omlet

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial weekend! Mine is full of catching up, shopping, eating, laughing, hiking, oh and did I mention eating? Becky and I have been exploring all over Elizabethtown and Louisville, KY from browsing boutiques/consignment shops, people watching at the BBQ Blues Bikes festival, stuffing our faces at Back Home Hammerheads and the Pie Kitchen and laughing at good jokes at The Laughing Derby comedy club. Although we did flex our shopping muscles and our smiles, today we are going for a little hike to help burn off whatever is left from yesterday’s binge-fest. What’s a visit without an explosion of amazing food? Nothing I want to be involved in that’s for sure. There may even be a distillery tour involved at some point O:-).

But enough about food you cannot see, how about this omelet? I had been meaning to make this for far too long and finally did one morning and it was a snap. Eggs cook quickly and are much more satisfying than a bowl of cereal in the morning. This one was a particular hit due to my weakness for goat cheese. I’ve posted quite a few recipes featuring goat cheese recently. Why do cravings always come in waves? No matter, you need to make this omelet full of sweet corn and creamy goat cheese.

Strawberry, Rhubarb & Pear Salad

Change up the way to think of strawberries and rhubarb with this strawberry, rhubarb and pear salad with balsamic-herb dressing. It just might be your favorite spring salad!

Strawberry, Rhubarb & Pear Salad 1

When you hear the word “rhubarb” what is the first thing you think of? I bet most of your answered that with “strawberries” and most likely combined in a pie or crumble. Well it is time to open your horizons and welcome this strawberry-rhubarb salad into your world, tossed with pears, crumbled, goat cheese, pistachios and spring salad greens. I even made a balsamic-herb dressing to go with it. With all of those ingredients combined together, this salad quickly became one of my favorites. Sadly rhubarb has been difficult to find and may have to sit on the bench for round 2.

In other news I had a phone interview for a job the other day which lasted 1 hour and 45 minutes. I couldn’t believe it! Definitely did not feel like it took that long but at the same time was the most in depth phone interview I’ve had yet. But before all that happened I managed to screw up which time zone in which I currently reside. She told me 11:00 am central time and I reverted back to thinking I still lived in Memphis, so when 11:00 am came and went I was worried. I even sent an e-mail to check in and suggested other times I was available. Thankfully when my phone finally rang at noon eastern time she understood and we had a little laugh about it. Gotta find the humor in life!
