Alton Brown’s Stove Top Macaroni & Cheese

First of all, I’d like to welcome all the new folks who found me over the weekend from Lizzie’s Tips For Everyday Living! So glad you’ve found all the deliciousness on Bakerlady. Thank you for your many kind comments and for sharing your memories of Banana Pudding with me. You made my weekend full of joy. I love new friends. You guys helped push my little blog over a million all time hits on Saturday. I’m amazed by all of your willingness to put up with my ramblings. I have the best readers ever! Ok, enough sappy love fest-ness. On to some deliciousness.

Not gonna lie. I’m a pushover for the Kraft mac n’ cheese. I’m a total foodie, so it’s a little embarrassing to admit, but it’s true. I get a hankerin’ for it now and then and nothing else will do.

Madison had a severe dairy allergy from the time she was 1 until she turned three and blessedly grew out of it, so macaroni and cheese was not something she ever ate. I tried making a dairy free, soy cheese version once. Yeah. Just once. A single gag inducing bite later and the whole pot was in the trash.

30 Day Shred – Day 10

A third of the way there!!

I consider myself to be a pretty fit person. My former gym workouts consisted of an hour on the stair master/elliptical machine with a ton of resistance & up to the max elevation, then a half hour of weight training plus 50 squats on an upside down BOSU ball and lots of push-ups (not the girly kind). I frequently ran as well and can pretty easily do around a 9 minute mile for 4+ miles. So, I’m very impressed that on day 10 of Jillian’s Shred I’m still getting whipped. I think it speaks to this program’s ability to allow you to push yourself as hard as you want/can. And I’m not even on the highest level yet! [Read more…]
