Dig Into These Decadent Macaroni and Cheese Recipes

August 26, 2015 1:21 pm

There’s something so decadent and indulgent about a creamy bowl of macaroni and cheese, but after the age of 10 (or graduating from college, perhaps), it just feels unsatisfying to eat macaroni and cheese from a box. Here are three homemade mac and cheese recipes that are much more grown up—and even a bit healthier.

Perfect Macaroni and Cheese [marthastewart.com]
Martha Stewart’s "perfect" macaroni and cheese doesn’t stray too far from the tried-and-true original, but it does use higher quality versions of the usual ingredients. Freshly grated nutmeg and grated Gruyere add a more refined taste than the usual cheese powder, making this a perfectly rich version of your childhood favorite.

Mac-and-Cheese Style Cauliflower [vegetariantimes.com]
If you love the taste of macaroni and cheese but can’t bear to throw your diet out the window, this veggie-filled alternative is the perfect solution to your woes. It uses mild-flavored cauliflower instead of macaroni noodles for a dish that’s much lower in carbs.

Creamy, Light Macaroni and Cheese [myrecipes.com]
If you’re more concerned about the calories and fats than the carbohydrates, this modern recipe also offers a healthier take on mac and cheese. With butternut squash as its secret ingredient, you really can’t go wrong with this flavorful recipe.

Victoria Gastro Pub: Don’t Miss the Lobster Grilled Cheese

August 19, 2015 12:16 pm

Inspired by the gastropubs that dot London's busy city streets, Victoria Gastro Pub is named for one of the very busiest transportation hubs: Victoria Station. Plus, the owners of Victoria Gastro Pub happen to have a daughter named Victoria. With such a meaningful name, it makes sense that Victoria Gastro Pub contains both the cosmopolitan vibes of a city and the warmth of a family dining room.

Locals flock here for an upscale meal of American and international fare, all infused with the chef's own unique flair. Try the duck fat fries, a local favorite, or the poutine (fries with cheese curds) to kick off your meal. They both boast a slew of glowing Yelp reviews. So does the lobster grilled cheese, which takes a childhood classic and transforms it into a sophisticated dish. Enjoy the grilled cheese, a steak, or fresh seafood with a draft beer from Victoria Gastro Pub's ever-popular list.
