Homemade Mac & Cheese

This is the cheesiest, stick-to-your-ribs-iest, comfort-food mac & cheese you’ll ever make. It’s not health food, that’s for sure, but is it ever delicious! MyNetDiary gives it a D, no doubt for the high fat, which is nearly all saturated. This recipe makes a lot. You’ll serve 8 – 10 as a main dish, 12 –…

Black Bean Enchiladas

  Happy Meatless Monday, a day in advance! You will surely be happy eating these hearty enchiladas. We were almost done with dinner before my chief tester noticed there was no meat.
