Philly Mac & Cheese & Food Lion’s New Website #LifesBetterWithTheLion

Philly Mac & Cheese

Between the 95+ degree weather and the AC being on the fritz I’m doing everything I can to not have to cook. I take advantage of days like today, when the wind is blowing and the temperature is in the mid to low 80’s, to get my cooking done for the week.

I’ve had some help planning this weeks menu with the help of Food Lion’s new Recipe portal.


Food Lion Submit a Recipe

I found all kinds of delicious recipes on Food Lion’s newly updated website. There are several ways to filter the recipes including:

  • Filter by cuisine type (Asian, Italian, Mexican, etc..)
  • Filter by main ingredient
  • Filter by meals (breakfast, brunch, lunch, etc..)
  • Filter by Lifestyle (cooking for two, gluten free, vegetarian, etc..)

There are even more ways to filter so you can find the recipes that anyone you serve will love. Once you find a recipe you love you can check off the ingredients and add them to your shopping list!

My favorite feature by far is the ability to add your own recipes. I did it and it was so easy! You can see my Philly Mac & Cheese recipe on the Food Lion website.

Clicking on the heart by any of the recipes will save them to your Food Lion ‘My Recipes’ account. This makes it easy to save recipes to come back to later and add them to your meal plan!

So, how did I come up with this Philly Mac & Cheese idea? Well, I walked through every aisle in Food Lion while I was shopping. This is normal for me and how I get inspired. The first stop was the produce aisle where I found the Sliced Fajita Medley.

Then I found a package of shaved beef that was just calling my name. Farfalle, Pepper Jack Cheese and a few random ingredients later and I had the brilliant idea!Philly Mac and Cheese Ingredients

I bought enough ingredients to double the Philly Mac & Cheese recipe so I could freeze half of it for later.

If you have a recipe you think the world would love to try then you should definitely add it to the Food Lion Recipe Portal. It’s super simple to do and who knows, your recipe could become a hit!

Simple Steak Alfredo Recipe with #PinkRelief

Growing up in the country had its downfalls, but there was always one upside that I loved: the food! It could’ve been the worst day ever but whatever was cooking on the stove made it alright. Over the years I have recreated many of my childhood favorite recipes. Then there are those times I’m feeling homesick and just start cooking; no clue what I’m making until it’s made. That’s when I do some of my best work!

Simple Steak Alfredo

Most of the time when I’m creating something new it’s because I haven’t been to the store in a while and I’m being resourceful. You know, working with what I’ve got. That’s how I wound up with this delicious and simple Steak Alfredo recipe.

Chances are you have most of the ingredients on hand, if not it’s very flexible so you can substitute meats, pastas, or make it vegetarian! I love adding different cheeses into the sauce for some bold flavors. Havarti and Gouda both melt wonderfully and enhance the flavor. I highly suggest playing around with it and swapping for different meats/veggies.

Pepto #PinkRelief

One word of warning, this is a heavy dish! It’s extremely filling and super easy to over indulge on. That’s why I have to keep Pepto-Bismol around – because when something tastes as good as this simple steak Alfredo I just can’t help myself! Pepto is that magical pink potion that gives me relief for pretty much anything that ails me.

C’mon, I know you know the words: Nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea! Hey, Pepto-Bismol!
