Copycat Panera Mac and Cheese


I try not to eat a lot of fast food but sometimes when I want a quick meal I will run to Panera Bread and pick something up. One of my favorites is their mac and cheese! It’s incredibly creamy and totally worth the trip. I have found a way to get this wonderful dish at home with this easy recipe. One ingredient that you really need is some really good sharp white cheddar. I love the Cracker Barrel brand, you can find it here. Having it freshly grated also really helps it melt and become super creamy. This comes out so good and reheats well the next day too!  Continue reading “Copycat Panera Mac and Cheese”

Skinny Fettuccine Alfredo

Ever since I was a kid, a big bowl of Fettuccine Alfredo was something I always loved. It was the ultimate comfort food. But it is not the healthiest thing to chow down on. This version still has a ton of flavor but doesn’t have the heavy cream to add on the calories and fat. I left the milk option open ended because it’s up to you on how many calories you want to cut, however I would recommend you not use skim. You have to have a little bit of fat to make the sauce nice and rich. Heavy cream is about 30% fat so even switching to whole milk would cut down on your calorie count without taking away the sauce we all love.  Continue reading “Skinny Fettuccine Alfredo”
