Baked Macaroni and Cheese : page 320

This is a basic Mac and Cheese recipe,and while it is good, it was a little denser than I prefer. My favorite recipes yield a looser, creamier mac and cheese. I also did not particularly enjoy the addition of onion and bay leaf.

Grated Butternut Squash Gratin : page 425

This is a super simple heart side dish. Ok. grating is a bit of a pain, but not any worse than peeling squash - that's the real battle (imo). I used a Red Leicester cheese and added a dash of cayenne pepper. It was delicious.

Tapioca Custard : page 1021

Perfect comfort food for a rainy day! This is a basic recipe with a couple variations (with 2 eggs, 1 egg or no eggs/with 3 tablespoons tapioca or 4). I used 1 egg, skimped on the sugar by a tablespoon or so, and used slightly over 3 tablespoons tapioca. I let it sit and brought it to a very slow simmer with a cinnamon stick to give it a subtle warm flavor. After it cooled it was creamy with just a little jiggle;)
