fineCooking - Cooking Without Recipes

A few years ago, I received one of my favorite birthday gifts from my daughters ... a subscription to fineCooking Magazine.  I eagerly await its arrival every month.  And the article I look forward to the most is the "Cooking Without a Recipe" feature.
 A couple of years ago, I shared my take on Hunter Style Braised Short Ribs.  I have made many variations since then.
And let's not forget the Mushroom Meatloaf with Honey Chipotle Glaze.  Just one of a bazillion combinations, but I am glad I wrote this one up because we liked it that much.
This time around the Cooking Without a Recipe feature is Mac 'n Cheese.  I call mine Insanely Delicious Mac 'n Cheese with Kale... because... it is truly insanely delicious. It's even vegetarian, for goodness sake!   That said, every variation the article suggested seemed wonderful on its own or as a springboard to something of my... and your... own imagination.

So I'm happily sharing this one with Presto Pasta Nights.  This week Emma of Soupier will be hosting for the first time.  So let's all help her out and make it a truly spectacular one.  Send your entries to souperior (dot) blog (at) gmail (dot) com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by tonight.    

How many variations of Mac 'n Cheese will make it to the roundup?

Haha well you know you've at LEAST got my mac and cheese to buddy up with! Yours sounds delicious! I love kale and I especially love sneaking veggies into my mac.
