mac and cheese

 We made a really good mac and cheese a while back, and when the craving hit us again a couple of weeks ago, wouldn't you know that of course we couldn't find the darn thing.

I did a fast internet search and settled on Baked Macaroni and Cheese from Trisha Yearwood.

 It's easy and uses basic ingredients so it could be a good weeknight supper, which it was for us.  I of course had to sample it before it went into the over to bake, and I would say that I think I liked it more unbaked - it was a bit more creamy.  Maybe some extra sauce would keep it creamy in the oven?  Will have to test that theory out.

Chinese meat pies

 For a few days on the old Tickety Tok I was seeing videos of a girl living in China eating out at restaurants and one thing she ate that looked SO good were Chinese meat pies from a Chinese meat pie shop.  I immediately starting googling.

I went with this recipe here - Chinese Meat Pies - and while it takes a bit of time, it's not super time consuming - couple of hours? - you end up with suuuuuper good, flavorful pies, that thankfully reheat well because you will make a bunch of them.


 Make sure you make the scallion ginger butter.  So delicious!

my nana's yorkshire pudding recipe

 Every once in a while, not too often, when we would visit my grandparents, my nana would make a roast and yorkshire puddings.  Yorkies have always been once of my very very VERY favorite foods my entire life.

I have tried recipes and mixes over the years, some worked, some didn't - one of the best is still Jamie Oliver's recipe - but the number one in my heart was my nana's.

I was shocked and beyond excited when my dad handed over my nana's yorkshire pudding recipe to me this Fall - from my nana to my mom to me.

Its a simple, easy, perfect recipe and made beautiful yorkies, which The Boy loved and The Girl did not, so I guess I know who the recipe goes to next.
