Best Ever Mac and Cheese

I know we’re not supposed to eat too many carbs (right?), so if you’re going to have some, you might as well make sure they’re really GOOD ones. Which is why I’m sharing today’s recipe. It is delicious. Perfect with burgers or steak, or as a main meal with some grilled chicken mixed in. I wish I could send you a forkful to taste. But then you’d wish you had a whole bowl of it. Might as well go ahead and just make it.

Did you get in on our Ninth Anniversary blog contest? There’s still time! We’re drawing nine winners for nine Loopy gift certificates! I’ve enjoyed reading all of the comments on first projects. There were many things knit for Barbie dolls as first projects, but there seemed to be an awful lot of people who jumped right into a sweater for their first knit, too. Impressive. And many of the first sewing projects sounded like they were a result of Home Economics classes. I remember making an apron in Home Ec. We had to use gingham material so that we could then embroider (with X’s) our initials on the pocket. Oh, it was stunning.

If you make the Mac and Cheese, let me know what you think. I love it when you all come back to blog posts and tell me you’ve made something and your family enjoyed it!

  1. Happy Friday : )
    I’ve made a Mac & Cheese close to this one but I put bacon and mushrooms in it very yummy ( well I thought so)

    Hope you guys have a great weekend

  2. The Mac and cheese sounds awesome for the upcoming cooler days. maybe I’ll try it as my next take-a-along when I go to my daughter’s for dinner.

  3. I love Mac and Cheese. My recipe is similar to yours but I use half elbows and half cauliflower. My cheese is Smoked Gouda and Sharp Cheddar or Gruyere.Panko crumbs on top. Now I’m hungry. I have the cauliflower so I’ll go make mac and cheese. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. I wish we all had those first projects, still! What a great exhibit they would make! 🙂

    This sounds so yummy! Perfect for the fall!

    Back to my knitting! 🙂
