healthy mac n cheese? no way!

I’ve been getting monthly subscriptions to Food&Wine for some time now, and every once in a while I’ll see a recipe that really intrigues me. In the April issue, I saw a recipe for Carrot Macaroni and Cheese. It uses no butter! I did not think that mac n cheese would taste good without the use of butter. So I gave it a try. It was actually pretty good… sweet from the carrots. Substitutions: Since there was no tarragon at TJ’s, I used cilantro instead. I also cooked the carrots for only 15-20 minutes since I was too hungry to wait.

I also made these Honey Nut Chicken Sticks that are super easy and I got from a Rachel Ray 30 minute meals show. I’ve made these a bunch of times with different cereals. It’s true- you can make a quick and healthy meal in 30 minutes!

Verdict: Healthy mac n cheese is possible! Chicken sticks are always a winner.
