Cast Iron Mac and Cheese

There is sort of a funny story to this recipe. While my boyfriend was out playing frisbee, I fell asleep on the couch watching some show. I couldn't even tell you what it was. When he came back (and I was still asleep), the TV show was showcasing a restaurant in New York that only serves mac and cheese in individual cast iron bowls. When I finally woke up, he was in the middle of making this. He said the show inspired him and cast iron mac and cheese sounded too good to pass up. :D

Pumpkin Beer Bread

It is Saturday. Time for more college football and my continuation of putting booze into delicious baked goods. This one turned out to be an awesome breakfast. With a little bit of butter and honey, this bread served warm is a nice way to start a tailgating morning.

Cajun Seasoning

Don't have too much to say on this one other than I didn't feel like spending $4 on a bottle of seasoning when I had of the components in my pantry and could make it myself.

Jambalaya

Mmmmm...Jambalaya. Perfect "stay home and watch the Gators kick some booty!" food. This recipe is delicious, but be prepared. There is a bit of prep with this. I ended up doubling the recipe so I could have some lunches for the week (list of ingredients below is not doubled). Go Gators!

How To: Shell and Devein Shrimp

I came to the realization today that I have never cooked with fresh shrimp. Thinking back on the few times that I have cooked shrimp, they were always prepped and frozen. So it time to change that.

Walnut Chocolate Liqueur Pie Bars

Come football season, I become somewhat obsessed with finding good dessert recipes with booze in them. This will be a good start to the season I think.
