Pleasant to the palette...

WARNING: This post will definitely be hazardous to your health and lead to addictions.

Why? You ask........well,

For starters I'm sharing my newest favorite food item and a "famous" friends recipe. You'll LOVE me AND you'll HATE me.

First, friend Lori got me addicted to this last week and it's like a snowball running out of control...........Bigger....BIGGER, bam (as Emeril would say) FULL BLOWN ADDICTION!!!

If you've never tried Gelato it's WAY TASTIER than icecream and it's better for you. I do not know why it took me 36 years (well technically, 35 years and 361 days--I turn 36 this Friday) to discover this delectable little treat. To find out more about Gelato, google it...Find out where they sell it in your area and go directly to the nearest store. If you're local, they sell it in Frisco at Pacuigo's Italian Gelato store near Stonebriar mall and at Market Street.

Next, in honor of my dear friend Margaret who passed away 2 wks ago. I made her "famous" homemade mac-n-cheese recipe this weekend. Margaret was a fabulous cook. What I like best was her AWESOME mac-n-cheese recipe. I don't think she would mind me passing it along so others can enjoy it too. You will never eat boxed macaroni and cheese again, after trying this recipe. Try it, you'll see what I'm talking about. Follow this recipe for cheesy greatness.

2 cups of elbow macaroni (cooked and drained)
1 stick of salted butter
1 pound of Velvetta cheese

Cook and drain macaroni. Put in large pyrex dish. Chop butter into squares and mix it thoroughly with the macaroni. Chop up the velvetta cheese into squares and mix it with the macaroni. Pour in about a cup of milk (or more if you want it creamier). Seasoned salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 375F degrees for at least 45 minutes or until golden brown on top. Great for Sunday's after church, family gatherings or any time you need a yummy dish because you're PMS'ing. Soul food.

Rinse and repeat.
