Macaroni and Cheese Royale

Baked Macaroni and Cheese Royale - better than boxed, comfort food.

Growing up, I didn’t eat Kraft Mac&Cheese. Not unless I was at someone else’s house. My mom couldn’t stand the smell of it and gagged. She ate it all the time as a kid, to the point where it was gross.

So the typical ‘kid comfort food’ wasn’t common in our house, and as an adult, I still am not a huge fan of the boxed stuff, even though they removed a lot of the bad bad stuff recently, it’s still not very good for you. My kids don’t really enjoy the boxed stuff either; they prefer to eat this version with all the veggies and flavor instead!

Ode to a cheeseburger what a wonderful thing
With pickles, onions tomatoes and cheese
I’m easy to please
With its buns and seeds it has no needs
Except to fill you up even if you get stuck
And yell oh shucks!
With its cousin the French fry
It tells no lies
With ketchup in your right
and the last fry in your left
Its just the burger on your plate
It truly is impossible to hate

Califoracado Spifeta Pizza

Well East coast foods are hip
I really dig those styles they eat
And the Southern foods with the way they talk
They knock me out when I’m down there
The Mid-West farmer’s dinners really make you feel alright
And the Northern foods with the way they kick
They keep their boyfriends warm at night
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California
I wish they all could be California FOODS

How to Make NATURAL Green Food Coloring

 

Many of these recipes will flavor the final outcome. Since you don’t want your sweets tasting like, say, broccoli or spinach, opt for avocado in icing and other sweets. Look for foods that complement each other nicely, such as potatoes with parsley, broccoli, or spinach.

Because you will need a larger amount of natural coloring than conventional dyes, the liquid coloring will affect the texture of the dish. Use less of other liquids until you have achieved the color that you want, at which point, you may wish to add more liquid if necessary.

To avoid the food coloring issue entirely, give the illusion of green foods by setting a green table—use green flowers, napkins, centerpieces, décor, and naturally green foods (like peas, kiwis, green grapes, lime slices, or lettuce.) Sprinkle green herbs over savory foods, or cook greenies right into them.
