Blueberry Lemon Cupcakes with POM Buttercream Frosting

In honor of Heart Health Month and Valentine's the people at POM Wonderful are holding a cupcake contest.  When I heard about this I was all in!  I love experimenting with new flavors and I love cupcakes, for me, this was a win win situation.  I get to try a new product, well new to me, and I get to make cupcakes!  Why not enter?  Not only would I have a sweet treat to enjoy and share for Valentine's but POM offered to donate $1.00 to the American Heart Society for every recipe entered.

Spinach Artichoke Mac and Cheese

I love spinach artichoke dip; it's one of my favorites.  What's not to love about it; spinach, artichoke and ooey gooey cheese!  I also love macaroni and cheese! But really, who doesn't?  How can you not love pasta with tons of melted cheese?  It's comfort food at it's finest.  When I saw this recipe I knew I HAD to make it.  It takes two of my favorite foods and combines them.  With this combination how could you possibly go wrong? What's not to love?   

Although I could fill up on an entire bowl of spinach artichoke dip, it's nice to know there's an alternative to quench my craving for this dip but in a more filling meal.  This mac and cheese was delicious.  It was so rich and cheesy, hearty and so satisfying; this truly is comfort food at it's finest.  The addition of chicken makes this meal the ultimate "one pot" meal, perfect for week nights.  Although it's the perfect addition to your week night meal plan, it would also be a wonderful dish to serve for a special occassion or for guests.
