Avocado Mac n' PepperJack Cheese

I know I speak for both Rachel and I when I say we are sooooo super excited to share this recipe with you, because OMG it is so wonderful!

Avocado Mac n' Pepperjack cheese has got to be the best thing on this planet.

We found the recipe base here. If you are a true follower of our blog you know we tend to wing it with these recipes, if we don't have an ingredient we omit it or substitute it.
So here is what we did.

Ingredients you need:
10 oz  Rotini pasta or Elbow Macaroni
2 cups shredded Pepperjack cheese
2 Avocados
3 garlic cloves
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste 

We started by shredding the cheese until we had 2 cups worth. 

In a food processor you add the lemon, garlic,

and avocado.

Pulse until creamy. *Resist the urge to eat it!*

Make pasta according to package directions, drain, and set aside.

In a large sauce pan melt the butter over medium heat.

Stir in flour until well mixed

Add in milk and cheese.

Stir until creamy and set aside.

Put pasta in a large bowl and add the Avocado puree.

Stir it up until it coats all the pasta.

Last add the cheese sauce and stir it all together.

The final product is a very delicious and addictive mac n' cheese.

Rachel after making and tasting it decided she needed to rush home and make it for her family.
We both loved it, it was hard to put down the fork.
It was creamy with just a bit of heat from the cheese. Just amazing, addictive, perfect! 

What is most wonderful about this is after Rachel went home I didn't have to share with anyone except my dad! 
(I mean I offered some to my husband and roommate, but they don't like avocados *score* more for me)
Yummy, yummy in my tummy!

One thing we both agree on is to not let it sit too long. 
It still taste great, but the creaminess goes away.

Here we have a perfect example of why you shouldn't leave glasses of water unattended in my house.
Tsk, tsk Thorin.

Low Carb Spinach Quiche

Hey everyone! Hope you had a good week, if not it's going to get better 
because we have an amazing Quiche recipe!
Seriously... it is the best egg pie you will have!

Here are the ingredients you will need:
4 cups fresh spinach
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup your favorite shredded cheese
6 eggs
1 tablespoon garlic powder

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees then chop your spinach.

Yummy Spinach!

add in the cottage cheese

eggs, and shredded cheese. And mix it up.

Spray your pie pan with a non-stick cooking spray.

Spoon mixture into greased pie pan.

It will look like it overflows unless you have a deep dish pie pan.
We made 2 Quiches from this recipe so Rachel could take one home to her family.

Bake at 350 for 45 mins.


The edges should be nice and crispy while the middle is soft.
You can eat right away(Well after letting it cool a bit, Don't burn your mouths people!),
Refrigerate and have the next day(Taste great warm or cold), 
or make in little muffin tins and freeze(you will have breakfast for the week)!

Now this is my base recipe, you can add anything you want to it.
Add some chopped bacon or ham, more veggies, and any type of cheese.
Make it yours and make it amazing!

This is super yummy, I love having it for breakfast or just whenever...
Rachel loves it as well and always wants to make it.
It's super addictive ^_^
