mac 'n cheese?

have you ever made fetttucine alfredo? i knew that it wasn't good for you, but i didn't know it could taste so good. so sinfully delicious with full fat cream, lots of butter and parmesan cheese. it was like eating mac n' cheese for grownups. i mean i've eaten this stuff in restaurants, but have you ever felt your waistline grow by an inch as you continue to put forkful after forkful in your mouth? and not care. i can't stop myself.

fortunately my husband is out of town so i get all the leftovers to myself, ahem i mean i don't get to share this amazing recipe with him. comfort food makes me feel better when he's gone, but let's be honest, i love comfort food when he is home as well.

i got the recipe from the pioneer woman who is a crazy blogger with lots of recipes and photography and stories of life on a farm.

i highly recommend halving this recipe and don't skip the pasta water step as she isn't kidding about the thickness of this dish. this picture is my first attempt at this new staple, notice the empty plate in the background. i had to eat my meal before i could even stop to take a picture, it's that good.

Yum! That looks great! Here is another food site that I have recently become addicted to:


The current blog makes me drool just thinking about it - and I don't have an oven to try it out! Dang!
