We’re spending some time by the ocean and here’s what we had for dinner the other night. Just a perfect dish for anytime , but the dish was really good for a little vacation time! It’s so easy and packed with lots of flavor. I like it with a little more heat so I added more chipotle peppers. Don’t wait for vacation to try these shrimp and grits now is the perfect time. Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Let me just say that if you only make one mac and cheese in your lifetime this should be the one. My gosh! I just had to make it after reading all the comments after this was written. What about Food 52? They shouted from the rooftop about it, too. So I’m right up there with the rest of them and I have to say that it is the best macaroni and cheese that I have had. Martha knows her mac and cheese that’s for sure. It has just the right amount of bechamel sauce to go with the pasta and I love the White Cheddar and Gruyère Cheese. I will have to admit skepticism about the nutmeg, but it went in the sauce . Perfection! So it’s your turn to let Martha’s Perfect Macaroni and Cheese be the hit at your house. It was at mine.
Last month I served these to my book club. Now they are here for you to pull out for your next get together. They are so easy to make. In fact you can prepare the dough ahead of time and freeze so it will be sitting there ready when you are ready. A hundred years ago I made these cheese straws using a manual cookie gun and I found them quite difficult to push through. Now Paula Deen has saved all of us some manual labor. How much easier can you get than slice and bake?
Looking for an easy way to make biscuits? This is just the recipe for you. I don’t really think that you can mess this one up unless of course you add more milk than you should and you end up with Garlic and Cheese pancakes. That doesn’t sound t0o appetizing does it? I have had a couple of groups to do this! No seriously, this is a no-fail recipe for those who are inept at kneading the dough. In the time that it takes the oven to preheat all the grating (if you choose) and mixing can be done. The baking time is quick, too, 8- 10 minutes. This is a winner no matter how many times you make it.
For our second lab of the semester we made these Cheese and Garlic Drop Biscuits. They are so easy and quick to prepare. Plus they are just plain delicious. I am loving my students for this semester. They are all eager to learn how to prepare all kinds of food. I still have to work on a few students that are a little lazy about writing down the steps and the amounts of ingredients, but failure can be a good learning experience.
I love these sausage balls! Even though this recipe has been around for a long time, my students have requested me to make this recipe and post it. So here it is. This is day four of no school because of the snow and ice. What better excuse do you have to get in the kitchen? I think that these were originally intended to be served as a party food, but here we serve them for breakfast. Let them cool and place them in a freezer bag. They freeze well for a month, but if your family is like mine they will not last near that long.
