As a quick announcement, I’ve finally set up a Facebook page! I would appreciate any “likes” if you would like to follow along. Thanks!

I took a little break from my quest to find the ultimate creamy stove top macaroni and cheese recipe. After sticking to a healthier diet for a few weeks, I rewarded myself with another macaroni and cheese recipe. And this is the best one yet in my opinion. In fact, this may be “the one.”

A while back, I posted about my experience attending Sam The Cooking Guy’s Livecast. Well, for those of you who are fans of Sam The Cooking Guy, he is performing a live show on February 18, 2012 in San Diego.

Tickets are $60 each, but I’m giving away a pair on my blog, so two lucky people can attend for free.

Description of the show:

This is Sam on stage at his unscripted best. It’s a fun night that mixes the best elements of a live cooking show, video clips, an interactive Q&A and behind the scenes stories – and it’s all right there in front of you. If you’ve ever wondered if Sam is as quirky off camera as he is on, this is your night to find out.

And starting off the evening is ‘Woody’ from Woody’s Liquid Kitchen all the way from Sydney Australia. Woody’s been on Oprah, is regularly flown to locations around the world as a Director of Beverage for VIP parties and events and opened for Guy Fieri on his US tour (a fact we won’t hold against him). He might be the greatest, most entertaining flair bartender you’ve ever seen. And if you’ve never seen a flair bartender – Woody is the one to see.

Love is in the air. Or so it seems for those around me. In the last week, two of my friends had a secret marriage ceremony, another one got engaged, and I received my invitation for a wedding for two other friends.

Strawberries are usually on sale in February, and it just so happens they are FH’s favorite fruit. Unfortunately, he also has an allergy so he isn’t supposed to eat many. But one or two is okay. So I made him these strawberry cake waffles.

Instead of making regular waffles, I decided to make strawberry cake and bake it in the waffle maker. These came out pretty good. Sweet, light, crispy, with little bits of strawberries mixed inside. It works as a breakfast or a dessert.
