Super simple mac and cheese: a recipe for the ultimate comfort food

When my kids were little, it was all about the dark blue box of macaroni and cheese. Yup, they would beg me for it and I would indulge them (every now and then.) Oh, how they loved the powdery orange stuff and the miniature noodles! Now that they've grown up (and so have I,) we still love our mac and cheese, but on our own terms: homemade with real ingredients. Mac and cheese is the ultimate comfort food. If you choose to make it this winter, pass by the box and try this super simple version. Your inner child will be more than pleased with the result! It's tastier and MUCH more satisfying than any store-bought brand! You'll see....

noodles in dish

cheese pour

milk poured

(Side note: sometimes I add an egg or two to hold everything together a little bit better. Just beat them a bit and fold them into the milk/cheese/noodle mix before popping the dish into the oven.)

Beautiful, no? Trust me, the end result is as delectable as it looks. And it's just as easy as it seems. Win/win.

Give it a try and let me know how it goes! May the little blue box with the orange powder remain a distant and not-so-fond memory!
