It’s that time of year, when slowly but surely, the end of summer approaches. The summer nights get shorter and the temperature seems to be slightly chiller at night. Those are the nights when this Homemade Mac & Cheese from Annie Mahle’s new book “Sugar & Salt” comes into play.

Over at Virtual Potluck we’ve teamed up and cooked from this gorgeous little book and you can check out a round-up of recipes, as well as an interview with the author, of at Diabetic Foodie’s blog!

Annie is the chef at the two-masted restaurant and sailing schooner J. & E. Riggin, based out of Rockland, Maine. She cooks on a boat during the season and recipes like this pop up depending on the weather and the season. I say the weather, because mac & cheese is such a comforting, cool night kind of dish and this one is no different.

Come experience a Maine sailing vacation along the rocky coast on the historic Maine Windjammer, Schooner J.& E. Riggin. Enjoy 3, 4, or 6-day eco-friendly sailing vacations as your windjammer cruise, departing from Rockland Maine, takes you past the spruce clad islands, unequaled rocky coastline and legendary lighthouse dotted bays of Penobscot Bay. – Maine Windjammer site
