Cheesy Grits w/ Sausage, onion, and bell peppers

Grits! An ultimate comfort food. I started making these a couple years back when I had Calvin. It was a complicated Shrimp and Grits recipe that was really good but really time consuming so I knew it wasn’t going to be made in the future if I didn’t simplify it. I have kept making it…

Campfire Mac n’ Cheese (at home!)

Have you guys ever had mac n’cheese over a campfire? Given my track record you can probably guess that this is a mac n’cheese version that is filled with that smoky flavor, sausage, and bacon. Usually, I let cheese be the star of this dish because duh, it’s in the name. But this version the…
