Super delicious, dreamy mac and cheese that tastes just like she-crab soup but amped up with tons of cheese and pasta. She-crab mac and cheese is the mac and cheese we’ve all been waiting for! This is perfect for a cozy weekend, Valentine’s Day, or even Christmas Eve.…
..or literally anything you are celebrating in the next two weeks.
Hello and how is your life! We have moved, had dance recitals, cleaned out our old house via 9,827 trips across town, lost things, found things, donated things, done some Christmas shopping, cancelled a vacation, and now, finally, are getting all in on Christmas, which they tell me is next week.
I have done no planning, no decorating, no wrapping, hardly any shopping. The whole thing is v out of character, but it’s a season we’re in right now so I’m going with it.
Now, though, the dust is settling somewhat and I’m all…oh right so it’s happening NOW. We’re hosting a gathering next week with Jay’s family which will be lovely, and I’m starting to piece together what things I can cook for what stuff we’ll be doing this week and next….

One of my best “use the oven at all times” Thanksgiving tips: plan an easy side dish that can roast or broil while the turkey rests and is carved.
EVEN IF you have a few casseroles that need to reheat at the same time, having one veggie that comes out of the oven fresh right as you’re ready to eat makes a really nice balance to what can be a pretty heavy meal.
This technique can apply to tons of veggies, like this 5-minute asparagus from last year or these broiled lemon green beans. This year, I’m doing spiced roasted Brussels. They get washed/prepped early in the week, then tossed with butter and spices early in the day. It’s a raw veg, so no need to clog up fridge space. They hang out on a baking sheet prepped and ready, roast while the turkey gets its beauty treatment, and done! A vegetable for those of us that like some vegetables with our butter.…
