How fun! I love Velveeta, but don't get to cook with it often since my husband is lactose intolerant :(

Tina Butler said... #

Thank you everyone. I agree velveeta is really great and so versatile.

Thanks Micha I saw your tweet that was so sweet.

Oh no Heidi I hate when we have to give up on things we like.

Oh Tina I am so excited...I have a big block of Velvetta in the fridge and it needs to be used so cant wait for the recipes. In fact I started to use it in your Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole w/Ham but havent gotten the chance yet. I sent that blog to a recently seperated Dad w/2 kids from my church and he was so excited...He said "she even shows pics how to do it". I just laughed.. Guys need to know that there are great people like you out there giving us good, easy to cook recipes. Thanks Tina, love your blog and cant wait till Monday.

Moy how exciting. That was so nice of you to forward my site to your friend. I agree dads need alot of help, just that he wants to try is awesome!!! I try to add the steps because I know it will help someone out. I learned cooking through watching my mother and sister so I thought it was best to include that part into my site. It makes me feel so good to help someone out that really needs it. Thats what it is all about.

Congrats! I love Velveeta. I know many true "chefs" frown upon it, but you just can't beat the creaminess it lends to a dish.
