Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and Cheese


This weekend was super busy so it is time to pull out an old favorite recipe. It’s not pretty but it is oh so good! This recipe was AMAZING!  I knew what I wanted to make but when I saw the recipe for Buffalo-Chicken Macaroni and Cheese on Foodnetwork.com my menu changed quickly. I followed…

Macaroni & Beer Cheese


We went to an Irish music day at a local brew pub recently and one of the items on the menu was Macaroni and Beer Cheese. Of course my daughter had to try it. She hates the smell of beer, wine, etc… but she loves to have food cooked with them. After tasting it she…

Cheesy Chili Beef Mac


The hour time change is kicking my butt.  But, the good thing is that the raising temperatures and sunshine the last two days have definitely brightened my outlook on life.  I truly believe I have a touch of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) every year.  No, it is not a serious depression for me but I…

I did not read this entire recipe the first night I went to make it until it was about an hour before dinner.  Read through this recipe…
