Cajun Crab Mac n Cheese

My mouth waters just thinking about this ooey-gooey concoction of flavors. This recipe is to die for – it’s creamy and has a lil’ kick to it! This recipe has 4 kinds of cheese in it, BUT the game changer is definitely the Trader Joe Cheddar & Gruyere Melange cheese. It’s so cheap compared to the gruyere or white cheddar any other store, & they combine them into one!

You seriously have to try this recipe, it’s totally worth the carbs

Ahi Tuna Salad with Sesame Soy Vinaigrette

This salad is an easy, yet restaurant quality meal that actually fills you up, unlike most salads! The dressing is light, refreshing, and really compliments the tuna.

I’m lucky to have such easy access to fresh fish by living in San Diego. If you can’t find fresh tuna, previously frozen will work! Try this one out and let me know if you have any comments or suggestions!
