The one thing I can never, ever get right is homemade Mac and Cheese.  Ever.  It curdles, its grainy, its too baked.  But I never give up, because I just love it. I recently found this recipe from Martha Stewart for stove top Mac and Cheese and I decided to give it a try! I have to say… this is probably the CLOSEST I’ve ever come to making really good homemade mac and cheese.  My only complaint is that it was more creamy than cheesey.  I think that next time I would cut the milk, either by a quarter or maybe by half.  But other than that, the recipe was good.  Creamy and tasty, so if that’s what you’re looking for, give it a try!  The recipe says that you should use 3/4 of a pound of pasta, but it makes ALOT of sauce.  Definitely use a whole pound of pasta. I ended up cooking more and adding it in when I realized that it was SOOOOOO creamy. You can find the recipe from Martha Stewart here, and step by step photos after the jump!

I had a post all ready to go for today, but then I saw this on The Hairpin – How to Throw a Shrimp Boil – and I had to change the schedule. 

The post is a step-by-step on how to throw a shrimp boil.  With our love of seafood well documented, it’s a no-brainer that this had to be shared immediately. The ingredients alone are amazing:

  • Ten pounds of shrimp
  • Five heads of garlic
  • One cup ground cayenne pepper
  • A case of cheap beer

The list goes on. It is literally so yummy sounding, I think I started to tear up because if I don’t have this in my life this summer, I have failed.  Summer, please come now!

In two years, this is the longest Erin and I have gone without posting! And we promise it’s for a good reason. We’re smack in the middle of a big, big change that we can’t wait to share with everyone.  However, the time we normally spend writing and photo-editing, we have to dedicate to this super-secret project. But we promise it will be worth it!

More to come very, very soon!
