Culinary Cravings: Mac and Cheese

I don’t really talk about food a lot on here, but I love to cook.  I enjoy shopping, planning, and cooking a meal.  Even if it just for myself.  I also really love drinking a glass of wine while cooking.  Anyone with me?  I know some people hate cooking, but for me, it is therapeutic and a wonderful way to end the day.

Macaroni and cheese is one of my favorite dishes to make.  A truffle mac and cheese to be exact.  Then I saw this post by one of favorite food bloggers, How Sweet it is.  Yum!  Anyone out there have a great mac and cheese recipe for me?  I would love to try something new!

    I love the new look of the blog!!! SO great! And as for the pic of Mac ‘n Cheese? It’s my favorite comfort food of all time. I use a Sandra Lee recipe that, (don’t snicker!) uses Cheez Whiz! You boil your pasta (I always use a fun shape like farfalle or penne), and while it’s cooking melt 1/2 stick of butter, 3/4 c. milk, and add 1/4 c. Cheez Whiz when the milk is hot and stir until melted. Add 2 c. shredded X-sharp cheddar and stir until melted. Toss the drained pasta with the cheese sauce mixture, put it all in a casserole dish, top with bread crumbs and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until bubbly. My whole family LOVES it! (and I swore I would never use anything like Cheez Whiz after I left my mother’s house!!).

    • Can I talk about how much I love Sandra Lee? Especially because she always says, “This drink is for Aunt Sandy,” and then she pours TONS of alcohol in her beverage. I will totally make this!!!

      • I just realized this reply makes it seem like I love her b/c of her need to make every drink a alcohol infused one. I should clarify that I think it is quite hilarious that this is what she does.

  2. I’m with you! I love to cook and planning meals is almost as much fun. We joined a CSA this year so the surprise produce each week elevates the challenge a little. My favorite mac and cheese recipe is a martha stewart recipe – I’ll dig it out one of these days and send it to you. We only make it at Christmas, b/c otherwise I’d be enormous.
