Potluck: Stovetop Mac and Cheese

Over the weekend Rudy had a few friends over for a potluck hi-tea of sorts, and given that it was Sunday afternoon I wanted to make something really simple and quick.  Mac and cheese came to mind, and up until then I never could find any recipe that I would make again.  This one was actually decent, without having to spend a ton on exotic cheeses or do anything particularly difficult, and was well received.  I added some additional ingredients to jazz it up a little, but this one is definitely a keeper.

Based on the recipe by The Food Lab.

Weekend Cooking: Roasted Herb Butter Parmesan Shrimp

One of Rudy’s colleagues went back to Kota Kinabalu over Christmas break, and she was very kind to help us get some amazing seafood her hometown is famed for.  We received 2 kilos of the biggest shrimp I’ve ever seen (10 to 12 a kilogram, aptly described as “extra colossal”), and I really wanted to do them justice and showcase their flavor.  This recipe used few ingredients from stuff I already have in my pantry, and did not disappoint, despite me messing it up a little.  After finishing the shrimp and soaking up the leftover sauce with our crusty bread, we were all left in a food coma.  Thank you so much, Daphne!

Based on the recipe from the blog How Sweet It Is.
