You can never go wrong with mac and cheese. And what’s not to love about a super simple 5 ingredient mac and cheese dish?! It’s so easy and can be thrown together in under 20 minutes. I love simple and easy meals. Our lives are hectic enough and quick dishes like this one make it just a little bit easier, especially on the week days.

This healthy 5 ingredient mac and cheese cuts down on the saturated fat as much as possible without leaving it taste like cardboard. I whip this dish up frequently to have a couple of days worth of lunches packed and ready to go. It’s as simple as boiling and draining the pasta, dumping the milk, butter and cheese and then covering it letting it simmer. Don’t forget to stir it occasionally.

 

Pasta. Milk. Butter. Cheese. Well, two types of cheese. That’s it! Simple right? It’s still delicious, even for a healthier alternative. So let’s get to it!

Bison Burger Sliders

My favorite time of year is here! If it were up to me, I would be grilling outside twelve months out of the year. Something about the charcoal, smoky, oh so delicious flavoring that a great grill session adds to the food keeps me coming back for more. Even in sub freezing temperatures.

Thankfully, we’re heading into the summer and we don’t have to worry about it snowing  while we flip the burgers. And who doesn’t love a good burger? Today, a burger does not mean a frozen, ground beef saucer. Burgers can be whatever you want them to be! Turkey, black bean, bison…yes, I said BISON. Today’s post is all about my relatively new discovery of bison and how to make delicious burger sliders with it!
