It's always nice to stumble upon a food blog in the webiverse written by a man. Despite the incredible abundance of approachable food blogs out there, covering everything from gluten-free treats to meat only meals, there are a limited number of blogs from the male point of view.
This week's featured food blog, Macheesmo, is one of the few fantastic food blogs written by a man. In this case, that man is Nick. Throughout his blog, Nick explores the cooking world by playing with regular ingredient pairings and improving upon them, learning just what "macheesmo" means. Through his kitchen trials, Nick has defined that as "learning to be confident in the kitchen." A great thing to learn, if you ask us!
In the process, we find an array of fantastic food stuffs thanks to Nick's documentation. With recipes for everything from PBR Waffles to delicious Cauliflower Macaroni and Cheese, his blog explores the world of food and the stories behind its recipes.
With these creative dishes, he also has plenty of more practical ones, like Eggplant Stacks with a tzatziki-style sauce, or the Shredded Veggie Casserole. For a simple dinner weeknight or weekend, we love the bright, vibrant flavors of Macheesmo's Cacio e Pepe. While this is a standard Italian dish, his addition of whole wheat spaghetti adds a nice, nutty dimension to the rich, peppery flavors.
Okay, ready to get back to the creative stuff? How about Bacon Stuffed Corn Cakes to whet your whistle, or Southwestern Hash Browns for your next breakfast tailgate this football season? Looking for healthy comfort food dinners? Hello, Tofu Macaroni and Cheese. There is no beating the creamy, mouthwatering flavors of this mac, plus it's filled with protein to take out the guilt. Brilliant!
Ready for dessert? We swear by the Coffee Cream Bars, with their deep coffee flavor and cheesecake-like consistency. If you're a fan of more classic desserts, try the Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, whose slight buttery nuttiness provides an added depth to the regular fan favorites. For fruit lovers, we recommend the Bake Sale Blondies, stuffed with chocolate, banana and cranberries.
After all of these great dishes, we're sure you're hungry for even more inspiration. Check out Macheesmo today, we promise you'll find new recipes to love and plenty more confidence in your kitchen.
