You know I love my queso, well I also love Tex Mex in general. I was a HUGE fan of these enchiladas filled with cheesy goodness and topped with meaty goodness. It doesn't get much better than that, does it!?

Apple, Cheddar, Red Onion, and Trader Joe's Hot & Sweet Mustard on Garlic Naan. Delicious. Should I just end the post there?
Maybe I should go on, and talk about the look of suspicion from Mr. KMW when he saw me putting apples on a panini. That suspicion was easily erased in the 3.5 seconds it took him to devour his panini.
It really was a delicious combo, the Hot & Sweet Mustard really helped
I have a dish that will be a great addition to your 4th of July BBQ...or if you are just craving some comfort food. I went to a BBQ at my coworkers a couple of weekends ago and I got the request for some more spicy mac and cheese. I wanted to go with something a little more mild than the Habanero Mac & Cheese, but still had a kick and got inspired by this Serrano Creamed Spinach. That way Mr. KMW could eat it this time around!
Have I mentioned that I can't get enough Mac & Cheese in my life? Because I can't, love that stuff. This version included
I can't believe I've had this blog for a year and I haven't posted any macaroni and cheese recipes, because I absolutely love mac and cheese and I've definitely had my fair share this past year. I think the issue is that I start shoveling it into my mouth as soon as it is out of the oven, leaving no time for pictures.
This stovetop butternut squash mac and cheese was inspired by Lauren over at Lauren's Latest, I'm always eyeing her recipes. Currently I have my sights on her Southwest Chicken Chop Salad and Cinnamon Bun Popcorn. Yes, Cinnamon Bun Popcorn.
I did make quite a few changes to this recipe, but kept the general idea of adding the squash and making it on the stovetop so it was an easy weeknight dish. Have I mentioned I love butternut squash? Well I do, although I would probably like anything smothered in this amount of cheese...cheese is
I had a lot of leftover fig pasted from the Fig Crumbles I made last week, and I definitely wasn't going to let it go to waste. One use I found for it were these easy fig and goat cheese crostinis, which make for an easy appetizer. Usually when I make these, I use a fig compote made of chopped dry figs (1/2 cup), red wine (3/4 cup), granulated sugar or brown sugar (2 Tablespoons) , and a couple pinches of thyme, but I figured the fig paste was a good substitute since I had it on hand.
Ingredients (choose how much you need based on how many you would like to make/serve)
Log of Goat Cheese
Fig Compote or Fig Paste
Slice baguette and brush both sides with olive oil. Toast bread on a grill pan over medium high heat (2-3 minutes each side) or for bake about 6-8 minutes at 400 degrees in the oven, turning half way through.
Once baguette slices are toasted, smear goat cheese onto crostini and top with fig compote or fig paste.
