The Pumpkin Mac & Cheese was a recipe I found off of Food Gawkers. It looked so good and Murray loves mac & cheese so much I just had to try it!! The recipe came from THIS blog. Lauren is the name of the girl at this blog and she has some great recipes. Her recipe called for nutmeg and cayenne pepper, but I can't stand nutmeg and I didn't want the pepper so Murray could eat it. I added cinnamon instead, and it was amazing. Here is my slightly altered version of her recipe that I used:
8oz penne (or whatever you prefer) pasta, cooked according to box
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup whole milk
2 oz cream cheese
1 cup cheddar cheese
3/4 cup colby jack cheese
a few dashes of cinnamon
-Whisk together milk and pumpkin over medium heat.
-Add in cheese and whisk until all melted. reduce heat to low.
-Stir in cinnamon until mixed.
-Add pasta, stir. Let stand if not thick enough. Serve and enjoy! :)
Now for the muffins, oh man. They were delicious! It smelled so good cooking! They came from THIS blog. Now, it's in French and it has a translator on the site. BUT, just to make to make it easy on you, I'll post the recipe right here! :)
