Jim's Cheddar Onion Soda Bread
This was SUPER easy to make and went perfectly with the "Chef John's Irish Beef Stew" I made for St. Paddy's day last night. A nice dense rustic bread great for any soup, stew or even chili! I sauteed the onions and added crispy bits of bacon I had leftover. I didn't have buttermilk so used the milk/lemon juice substitute adding about 1/4 cup extra as some suggested (may add a little more next time). I also didn't have parchment paper so I used aluminum foil dusted w/ flour. I skipped the dusting on top of the loaves and instead brushed the tops with melted butter. I like that you score with an X before baking because it breaks off nicely into big chunks (no cutting required). Next time I may try it with green onions and score the loaves before baking into smaller pieces or make individual biscuits. :o] *~* the milk/lemon juice substitute is: 1C regular milk with 1 tbsp lemon juice, let it sit for 10 mins before adding - adjust as necessary for your recipe, so I did 1 1/2 C milk with 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice for this recipe *~*

Fluffy White Frosting
Very tasty and I like how glossy it is but it is not firm so hard to shape (not a big deal for me). My family loved it! Used for my Valentine cupcakes (using my go to choc cake recipe from this site - Simple 'N' Delicious Chocolate Cake by J. Miller - YUM!). I usually use chocolate frosting (from this site too) but wanted white so I can color it for these. Very easy & it DOES taste like marshmallows! :o]

Mom's Favorite Baked Mac and Cheese
Very tasty. Hubby and I liked this a lot but my kids didn't care for the texture (I think it was the flour added to the cheese). I doubled the batch and used a little more shredded MILD cheddar (that's all the store had in bulk) and a little less than 1 pkg of Am cheese slices. Also sprinkled a little of the shredded cheese on top before baking (see my pic).
