I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

Dave's Macaroni & Cheese

This came highly recommended by my brother and sister-in-law. It's a staple for them and they passed it on to me. Definitely a unique twist on traditional mac n' cheese, but quite tasty!

  • 8 oz cooked macaroni or any pasta shape you'd like
  • 16 ounces cottage cheese, small curd
  • 8 ounces fat-free sour cream
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar
  • paprika

1. In a medium bowl, combine cottage cheese, sour cream, egg, salt and pepper. Add shredded cheese; mix well. Add cooked macaroni, stirring to blend well.

2. Pour mixture into greased 9 inch baking dish. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove foil and top macaroni with paprika. Bake an additional 15 minutes or until lightly brown and crusty.
