The Lighter Side of America's Test Kitchen
I rave about ATK all the time. But there are times when I just can't do the "fully loaded" dinners. For that I have my America's Test The Best Light Recipe to turn to. I've only tried a few things before, like my creamy pesto. So tonight I tried their Macaroni and Cheese with Ham & Peas. Very tasty! It said to use the 50% Cabot Cheddar but I chose to use the 2% Cracker Barrel Extra Sharp. I don't know what the difference is between the two. Maybe my use of skim milk instead of 2% made up some of the difference. And rarely do we eat regular pasta anymore, so I used the Barilla Plus elbow noodles.
I'm a happily married archivist/mom/wife. I love stitching and cooking delicious meals! I hate to exercise but I devote much time and research into being healthy. My newest obsession is our first home!
