Mock Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

My husband read that you could substitute barley for pasta in recipes. Today, we decided to try it. We made Mock Macaroni and Cheese. It turned out really well. You could not even tell the difference. Barley is lower on the Glycemic index than pasta, it is a whole grain, and it is gluten-free. This recipe could be used as a side dish or a main dish since it has so much cheese in it there is a good bit of protein.

Mock Macaroni and Cheese Recipe


Ingredients:

1 box Barley
1 lb. sharp chedder cheese, grated or more
2 eggs
1/2 stick butter
1 tsp. mustard
2 squirts hot sauce
1 can evaporated milk
pepper

Directions:

Cook barley according to directions on the package. Drain. Add butter and most of the cheese, save a little to go on top. Stir until they are melted. Add eggs,  mustard, hot sauce, evaporated milk, and pepper. Pour into casserole dish sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour.


Enjoy,

Easy Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

I made this recipe today for the first time. It really turned out good and everybody enjoyed it. Even my husband who is not a big strawberry fan came back for seconds.

Easy Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

 Ingredients:

1 box yellow cake mix
*I used the one that calls for butter
Strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup sugar
1 8oz. block cream cheese, softened
1 8oz. cool whip
1/2 cup confectioners sugar

Directions:


Slice strawberries add 1/2 cup sugar, let sit for several hours or overnight. Meanwhile, bake cake according to the directions on the back of the box. I baked mine in a 13x9 pan. The cake mix I used called for eggs, water, and butter. Let cake cool completely. While cake is cooling, make topping: beat cream cheese with the mixer, add confectioners sugar and cool whip. Poke holes in cake with a skewer. Spoon strawberries and juice over the cake. Top with cream cheese mixture.

Enjoy!

Have a blessed day,
Deborah
