*The crowd goes WILD!*

Jalapeno Mac & Cheese-6

This mac & cheese dish is one that is popular with all of our friends. Only to celebrate this milestone in our blogging adventures, we have given it a makeover! We have scaled down the recipe so that it can be made for a quick dinner for four, but you can also double it up as in the original recipe and serve an army. Now wasn’t that thoughtful of us?! 

We’ve also given it a little kick by adding one of Chef Rob’s new obsessions, jalapeños. And man! does it pack a punch. 🙂  And we FINALLY got to use these beauties! Woot! Woot!

Jalapeno Mac & Cheese-3

So thank you all, our loyal fans and friends, for keeping up with us over the last three years and letting us share our food and fun times with you. We look forward to many more years to come and much more food and laughs to be had!
