Creamy Macaroni and Cheese (w/ Ham)

This is a delightfully easy and delicious rendition of a creamy (vice baked casserole style) macaroni and cheese. I will admit that it is reminiscent of boxed mac n' cheese, but it is one of the few hot dishes our toddler will share with us. And although I have included ham here, it is entirely optional (and frankly just a great way to use up leftover Christmas ham). A tweaked version of this Southern Living recipe.

Thai Iced Tea

If you've ever been to Thailand (or really, ever eaten in a Thai restaurant), you've had Thai iced tea. And you know it is delicious. And you know it's great with spicy foods... or other foods... or as dessert... or just because.

Bon Appetit now tells us how to make it. I repeat the recipe twice in two different proportions because, frankly, it's dangerous to have 8 servings of Thai iced tea around the house.

For 8 servings:
10 star anise pods
2 tablespoons sugar
1 vanilla bean
15 tea bags

Pound Cake

This is Jon's Mom's Sour Cream Cake recipe

1 cup butter (softened)
3 c. sugar
Cream together until well blended.

Sift together in a large bowl:
3 c. flour
¼ t. baking soda
½ t. salt

6 eggs (may be separated, beat egg whites until almost stiff and fold in last) Or just add one whole egg at a time (this is what I do)
1 c. sour cream
1 t. vanilla

Add one egg at a time to butter/sugar and beat well after each.

Pumpkin Pie

We tried making pumpkin pies from scratch (like, starting with a pumpkin scratch), but we never quite got it to come out right. We've reverted to Jon's grandmother's closely-guarded recipe, which comes from the side of a Libby's can:

1 can Libby's pure pumpkin
1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk
2 large eggs
¾ cup sugar
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ginger
¼ tsp cloves
¼ tsp allspice (optional)
1 pie crust

Mix together sugar and spices in a small bowl.
