Lobster Mac and Cheese
So, another Valentines Day has come and gone………We had a very lovely dinner of Lobster Mac and Cheese. I had been wanting to make this dish ever since I saw Ina Garten make it on the Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network several years back.
Confession time………..1. I am a total Food Network Junkie. I have been hooked on it from day one……2. I want to be the Barefoot Contessa.There is something about Ina Garten and her show that inspires me each and every time I watch it.
I wanted to make something special for Tim for Valentines dinner. Our local supermarket had lobster on sale, and we both love mac & cheese……..sooooo an idea was born! Lobster Mac and Cheese!
Now, when I say we love mac & cheese you must realize that what I am really speaking of is, of course………the boxed velveta & shells…………I know, I know, processed, out of the box……..but even us recipe creating, chefy, food bloggers sometimes just need a day off. Nothing fancy, easy, and lets be honest it really tastes good!!!!!!
But this was not the time for that, and I could not mix real lobster into boxed mac & cheese. So it had to be made from scratch.I tweaked the recipe I found on Food Network and I must say, the result almost put the velveta to shame…….OK it did!!! Continue reading “Lobster Mac and Cheese”
Happy New Year!!
So…….it’s snowing……..again. Well I guess that’s winter in the midwest and I have no where to be….oh that magic feeling ( Beatles reference ).
When I started this venture I didn’t realize how obsessed I would be…….I want it to be perfect (type A girl). And there is soooooo much to learn. So as I move forward I hope you will all stick with me as I venture forward in 2014. So one of my co-workers ask for an onion dip recipe that I have been making and reworking for years. I love sweet onions and the addition of swiss cheese….well need I say more. This recipe is easy to resize for a crowd although my version is just enough for two.So I hope this is the recipe you wanted me to post Mindy……..enjoy!

First let me welcome you all to What the “Forks” Forks for Dinner……….
For my first post I agonized over what to post. After all I didn’t want you running in horror or boredom…… and as a new blogger I of course wanted it to be perfect. Which of course it will not be but I will surge ahead.
Mother Nature gave me the clue as to my first post.
We had our first really measurable snow fall and what else would warm the day like soup.It had to be soup. It had to be French Onion Soup….. Continue reading “French Onion Soup”
