Food, food, I like me some food!

I made 4 really great recipes in April/May that I absolutely have to share!!

Fannie Farmer's Classic Baked Macaroni and Cheese from the internet. Can I say YUM!?!?!? I made it with half and half (called for cream), 2% milk (it is from 1946 and you know they are talking about whole milk... I just couldn't do it) and corn flakes instead of breadcrumbs. It was absolutely delish!!

Grilled Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches from Cooking Light. I am terrible at grilling... This still turned out super good even though I burned the crust because I had the wrong cut and can't control my grill temperature. The barbecue-ranch sauce was really good and as simple as mixing the two bottled sauces together!

Chicken Tamale Casserole from Cooking Light. This was so good I have already made it again! And EASY! It takes no time to whip this treat up and it is even good as leftovers and I am not a fan of leftovers!

Thai Chicken Saute from Cooking Light. I think I made this a little different then the recipe... Instead of using Sriracha, I used chile garlic paste that I believe was a bit more concentrated. And I used a dollop of cream of coconut and milk instead of coconut milk because that was what I had. It was spicy but had the sweet from the coconut and it was gooooood.
If you decide to make them- enjoy! :)

I've let my Cooking Light subscription expire, so keep these coming. Definitely making the grilled pork tenderloin!

I don't get it anymore either but was thinking of getting it again because of all the great ones I have gotten from it! All the recipes I have posted have been from their website which is kind of limited.
