Gluten-Free Cauliflower Mac and Cheese
Recipe Courtesy of Dr. Josh Axe, DNM, DC, CNS"Tis the season for comfort food, and one of America’s all-time favorite comfort foods is macaroni and cheese. It’s melty, gooey and cheesy—so, really, what’s not to love?A lot, actually. The famous blue box that many of us ate as children is loaded with chemicals and preservatives that wreak havoc on our digestive systems and can lead to leaky gut. And homemade versions aren’t always much healthier, either. Aside from the conventional dairy products that are often full of hormones, antibiotics and pesticides, the traditional elbow macaroni that most mac and cheese is made with can cause numerous health issues for those suffering from celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity.The good news is that it’s still possible to enjoy a comforting bowl of cheesy goodness without all the bad stuff. This recipe uses health-boosting cauliflower instead of noodles, plus two types of cheeses packed with the benefits of goat’s milk, as well as protein-rich and gut-healing kefir. This is one mac and cheese that you can feel good about eating."-Dr. Axe

What could be better than a bowl of creamy cheesy macaroni and cheese? A hand-held version in the shape of a cupcake, of course!  These are a handy lunch box alternative to sandwiches for kids who are tired of sandwiches.  The Sneaky Chef mac 'n cheese formula is tried and true, and this turns it into a hand-held meal that can be popped into the kids’ lunch boxes or used as a side dish or appetizer.

My little one never liked taking chicken to school for lunch, but when I put this dish in her thermos, she came home and told me I had given her two of her favorite foods in one! I don’t know who was happier—Sammy or her mother who had managed to sneak in some more brain-boosting protein into her daughter’s day! Maybe that’s why she aced the math test!

Hard to believe kids could ever tire of boxed mac ’n’ cheese, but this pizza version is a nice variation on the familiar and an opportunity to sneak in even more veggies. The tomato paste isn’t just one of the ultimate ready-made healthy purees, it also lends an authentic pizza flavor to the recipe.

This red chili paste is savory, spicy, and flavorful; using even a little completely transforms any boring plate of food.

Mac and Cheese Stuffed Burger
There isn’t a single recipe out there that sums up my cooking style better than this one. Take two things you love, combine them in a unique way, and end up with something better than the sum of its parts. In this case, we have two crowd favorites, the burger and mac and cheese, both made from simple ingredients and techniques. If you just smother a burger with a big scoop of mac and cheese, it would be good, and it would be fun, but it would still be a burger with mac and cheese. Putting the pasta into the center of the burger is what really makes this dish special. From Stuffed, by Dan Whalen.

Nothing beats a crunchy tortilla chip topped with melted cheese and all of the other accoutrements of nachos — except for when the "nachos" are actually wonton wrappers, and they're filled with mac and cheese. Did we mention there are Doritos in this recipe?
