Healthy Macaroni and “Cheese”

What is it about mac n’ cheese?  Why IS it so good?  It seems like it would be nasty but unfortunately, I really like it.  My children also really like it so I’ve tried to think of some alternatives.
I can’t decide if I’m just that amazing or if they are THAT easily fooled.

Lentils, again.

Don’t worry–I have not forgotten about lentils.  Some of you gave me some VERY good ideas and I will post some of my favorites another day.

Tofu Recipe

Trying to like lentils

I’ve had lentils on the brain for a few months now and have tried a few recipes but I have a problem…they don’t taste good. I can’t figure it out—I like lots of “yucky” stuff that other people don’t like. I can pretty much trick myself into liking anything if I know it’s good for me. Lentils, however have been giving me a difficult time.
