HOMEMADE MACARONI & CHEESE: FAMILY RECIPE REVEAL


I thought this was the perfect time for me to share what I'm taking as a side to our family Thanksgiving Dinner. It's a family favorite, the recipe passed down through many generations, my MawMaw's Homemade Macaroni & Cheese :D

It’s really so simple to make, but you’d never know it by the look or taste of this huge dish of Macaroni & Cheese – a favorite for any family get together or any event requiring you to bring a dish that can feed a crowd.

INGREDIENTS:

1 Lb box of Elbow Macaroni ( I prefer & use Ziti )
1 Lb block of Mild Cheddar ( or 16oz pre-shredded )
1 Lb block of Sharp Cheddar ( or 16oz pre-shredded )
Milk
Butter
Salt


Boil Noodles in large pot until very soft – add 1 tablespoon Salt while boiling
Grate Cheese if using blocks
Use cooking spray lightly on a 16 x 9 Large Baking Dish
Will create 3 “layers” with ingredients, starting with noodles
Alternate adding noodles, cheese and pads of butter
Save a small amount of Sharp cheddar to finish off the top layer
Once you’ve used all ingredients and dish is full, pour Milk slowly until about 1/3 full from bottom (best if using clear glass so you can see)
Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes – until you see cheese begin to brown & bubble on top

And there you have it...my multi-generational family secret recipe, now revealed on the internet (oops! Sorry, MawMaw !)

NESCAFE WITH COFFEE-MATE GIVEAWAY + .75 OFF COUPON: 2-in-1 COFFEE & CREAMER COMBO


I was super excited to be among the first to try the brand new Nescafe with Coffee-Mate! It's a 2-in-1 Coffee & Creamer Combo, so you get your Coffee & Creamer all in one package!

It comes in various flavors including French Vanilla, Hazelnut and Sweet & Creamy Original.

I got my favorite, French Vanilla. Just opening the canister and smelling it had me ready to try it! I love the smell of french vanilla coffee, especially this time of year!

Nescafe with Coffee-Mate is a brand new product and after trying it, I'm sure it soon to become a favorite in households all over!

To be honest, I wasn't sure if I would like it because it is an instant coffee. However, let me tell you that the ease of adding just 2 spoonfuls to my cup of hot water was nice. Then I was blown away once I tasted it. The aroma did not steer me wrong! I love lots of cream & sugar in my coffee and if I had not known it was instant, I would have never guessed!

The flavor was so rich and creamy, I didn't add any sugar at all! It was fabulous and just what I needed tonight in our abnormally cold weather so early in the year.

Being that this is an instant coffee with creamer all in one package, how perfect for a long road trip! All you need to do is add not water!

I loved it and if you like coffee as much as I do, I know you will too!
