Macaroni & Cheese with Sausage


I love smoked sausage or Kielbasa. My family is a bit indifferent to it. I could eat it 3-4 nights a week and not care. So, when I serve it I kind of have to mix it into other things. We often have it with eggs, or potatoes, even macaroni and cheese. This is their…

Simple Stove-top Homemade Creamy Macaroni and Cheese


My kids love Southern style macaroni and cheese (baked) but it takes so long to bake that it is really not practical to make for a quick-lunch. This version is done in less than 20 minutes start to finish. Perfect for a nice family lunch on the weekend or make a batch and heat it…

Cacio e Pepe


Need a super simple meal with just a few ingredients? This may be the meal you are looking for! This is a horrible picture but it is like grown-up macaroni and cheese with black pepper. There is a whole bunch of controversy around this dish and how it “should” be made. I am NOT saying…

One Skillet Cheeseburger Macaroni


There are days when you just crave the foods of your childhood. I think because the weather has turned back to chilly (it is barely breaking 60 degrees) and gray, overcast, or rain I want those comfort foods. Also, our lives seem to be in a whirlwind of activity with the end of school in…

Mac & Cheese with McCormick Grill Mates Smoked Sausages


*This is NOT a sponsored post. I bought the sausages with my own money and these are my own thoughts and opinions and should be interpreted as such. When I was grocery shopping a few weeks ago I saw these McCormick Grill Mates Smoked Sausages on sale. My kids LOVE Montreal Steak seasoning on just…

Traditional Macaroni and Cheese


When I was a child my mother would make homemade macaroni and cheese a few times a month.  We almost never had boxed macaroni and cheese until I was in high school.  To me, macaroni and cheese was always a custard like dish unless it came from a box and then it was liquidy.  I…

Traditional Southern Style Macaroni and Cheese


Growing up I knew there were two kinds of macaroni and cheese. The one from the blue box and the one my mother made. I liked them both but I remember liking the one from the box a bit more (why, oh why?) but as I grew up my mom’s macaroni and cheese tasted better…

Creamy Stove Top Pesto Macaroni and Cheese


I am looking for the quick and easy dinners right now. As we have two weeks left before heading back to school we are trying to cram every last minute of fun we can into summer. I have been forgetting about dinner until 30 minutes prior to when my kids want to eat, which is…

Macaroni and Cheese topped with Slow Cooker Pulled Pork


I have renewed my Disney blogging by committing to myself to blog at least once a week about Walt Disney World. Most of my posts are about food but some will be about rides, family fun, and as always fun with autism. One of my first posts was about the meal my daughter and I…

Macaroni and Cheese at Min & Bill’s Dockside Diner


So, I have decided to go back to my at least once a week posts on Walt Disney World. Most of my posts are about our food adventures at Disney but I will be posting about our adventures with rides, changes at the parks and as always fun with autism. My daughter and I loved…

Creamiest Macaroni and Cheese


Yesterday was the first day back to school for both kids.  I decided to celebrate the first day by making my daughter’s favorite dish, macaroni and cheese.  She has been begging me to make plain, old-fashioned macaroni and cheese.  What she means by that is nothing added in – no shrimp, beef, tomatoes, veggies…. She…

Ham Tetrazzini


Last night was amazing because we were home for an entire evening.  I mean we did have to go out and deliver our daughter to the Murder Mystery Night at the local library and pick her up.  Stop and get gas for the van and have a few minutes to chat with friends waiting for…
