It's been a couple of weeks since I posted anything. This summer is flying by. I just got back from a wonderful trip to South Carolina. My husband's brother invites us to his lake house in the summer and what a wonderful time we always have there.
I made this Macaroni and Cheese a few weeks ago but I also made 2 casserole dishes on our trip. Perfect when feeding a crowd and it heats up well for leftovers. You can't go wrong with homemade Mac & Cheese. It is simply THE ULTIMATE COMFORT FOOD! (for me anyway)
There are a trillion Macaroni and Cheese recipes. This one comes from The Pioneer Woman Cooks. Really good, really yummy and really satisfying. A family and crowd pleasing dish that can be eaten as the main meal or a side dish.
My way: The recipe calls for a pound of cheese. I use half mild cheddar and half extra sharp white cheddar. I put aside around a 1/4 cup of each and sprinkle on top before baking. I also add 1/2 teaspoon of hot sauce when seasoning the mac and cheese mixture.

My husband and I tubing for the first time.......
It was time for some warm, comforting Macaroni and Cheese!
Mom's Cooking Club: To change up this macaroni and cheese, try different cheeses. You could add some pepper jack, swiss or use all extra sharp cheddar. Use a combination of different cheeses for your own unique mac and cheese flavor.
