Lobster Mac

On Christmas Eve the Hubs and I headed out for what is becoming a new tradition for our little fam - dinner out at a swanky restaurant. We indulge in little luxurious not normally eaten in every day. This year it included a Lobster Mac appetizer, then surf & turf, a few rounds of tasty cocktails and of course, ending with a sweet dessert!

Starting with a decadent Lobster Mac N'Cheese was definitely the way to go!! Let's just say it didn't last long, and it was beyoooond good! So before we get full steam back into our eating healthy gym routine {we kinda took Dec off, you know like a good person does! ;) } we knew we needed it one more time (or two!). So we decided to try it at home!


It was soo easy, and you can sure bet we will be making it many more times! We used Langoustine tails in lieu of Lobster- as the Hubs states they're  Lobster's little cousin - similar in taste and what the grocery had! We used good old Ina as a guide and then went with it!


Do you ever try to recreate food you love at home? This is something the Hubs and I really enjoy doing together!

  7. Looks divine... and I have actually asked if I could have a recipe from a restaurant (and they gave it to me). Doesn't hurt to ask although I embarrassed those with me initially, LOL! Happy New Year! xo

  10. Sometimes I try. I'm pretty anal retentive about following recipes though. It's kinda weird...I think I need therapy.

  14. This does look yummy! I've never tried to recreate something at my house that I liked before; I guess I've never really thought to do it.

  23. Oh my goodness, my mouth seriously watered as a looked through this post... Big fan of mac&cheese but not so much of the questionable ingredients you find now days. Now THIS is as real/natural as it gets and I'm excited ;)
