Ken's Ultimate Cauli-Mac-n-Cheese

In September 1995, I came across a recipe in Bon Appetit called the Ultimate Macaroni and Cheese, and for years it had been my go-to recipe for a special mac-n-cheese. Its taste wasn't for everyone -- some either love, love, love it (as did I), or they dislike it (maybe because they're accustomed to mac-n-cheese from a box!)

On LCHF, macaroni's out, as is flour, but neither of those made this recipe special.  Instead, this recipe's magic comes from the various creams, the extra-sharp cheddar, and the spice mixture... all of which carry over perfectly into LCHF wonderland.

Ingredients
3 cups roasted cauliflower, diced (1/2" chunks)
5 oz. extra-sharp cheddar cheese, diced (1/2" cubes)

1 1/3 cup half-n-half
1 1/3 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup sour cream
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
3/4 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

5 oz. extra-sharp cheddar cheese, grated

Instructions
Pre-heat oven to 350º

Combine the roasted cauliflower and the cubed sharp cheddar cheese in a buttered 9x13 pan.

Mix together the creams, eggs and egg yolks, the worcestershire sauce and the dry ingredients, then pour over the cauliflower and cubed cheese.

Top with the grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese.

Bake at 350º for 45 mins -- the cauli-mac should be set and starting to brown.

Grandma Row's Butterscotch Brownies

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350º

Novella's Banana-Nut Cake

Banana-Nut cake was a specialty of Mikesha’s grandmother, Novella Roberson. Over the past decade or so, Mikesha has taken up this part of her grandmother’s mantle, and Banana-Nut Cake is becoming a tradition at Williams-Row Thanksgiving dinners.

Ingredients for Cake
1½ cups sugar
⅔ cup shortening
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
4 tbsp buttermilk
3 mashed bananas (ripe or overripe)
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup chopped walnuts
2 eggs

Ingredients for Icing
¼ lb butter, allowed to warm to room temperature
1 lb powdered sugar
2 mashed bananas (ripe or overripe)
½ cup chopped walnuts

Cake Directions
Preheat oven to 350°.
Cream sugar and shortening until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, beating lightly.
Stir in mashed bananas.
Sift in dry ingredients and stir to moisten.
Add vanilla and stir.
Bake in two 8-inch round pans at 350° for 25 minutes or until set.

Icing Directions
Make sure butter is at room temperature.
Cream butter and powdered sugar.
Mix in bananas.
If not thick, add more powdered sugar to reach desired consistency.

Note: This icing recipe never does get thick like butter-cream icing, it’s usually pretty runny or “gloppy”.  Meringue powder (from the cake decoration section) can help stiffen the icing somewhat.
