This recipe has been adapted from a Betty Crocker cookbook from the 1950’s. This is my favorite go to comfort food!
Old Fashioned Creamy Macaroni and Cheese
8 ounces elbow macaroni
2 cups cubed cheddar cheese
1 cup cubed Jack cheese
2 cups creamy white sauce
Heat oven to 375. Place a third of the cooked macaroni in un-greased casserole dish add a third of the cheese then pour a third of the white sauce over the cheese, repeat two more times. Bake 45 minutes.
Creamy White Sauce makes 2 cups:
4 Tbl margarine
4 Tbl flour
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
2 cups milk
Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Blend in flour salt and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Take off heat and stir in milk. Return to heat and stir constantly until boiling. Boil and continually stir for 1 minute.
Some tweaks I have tried at different times that turned out yummy:
Pepper Jack cheese
Smoked paprika on top
You can also make it extra creamy by adding an additional cup of white sauce.
The original recipe calls for you to melt the cheese with the white sauce but I have never tried that as I am not a big fan of super creamy macaroni and cheese. I like mine with gooey with strings of cheese.
How do you make your homemade macaroni and cheese? If you try this recipe please let what you think. Enjoy!
I have recently found a new apple, new to me anyway, called Honey Crisp. They are sweet like a red delicious and crunchy like a granny smith. They are on the expensive side though… Since I found them in the winter, I am hoping that come summer and fall they will be a little cheaper. Anyway, I found them at Costco for a good price. Of course the good price was not so good since there were too many apples for me to eat… So I went in search of something to make with them.
I found this recipe (& pic) on the blog how sweet it is and since I love using my slow cooker I thought this was perfect to try. The smell of apples and cinnamon has been filling the house all afternoon making me hungry! It was delicious but VERY sweet. This coming from someone who LOVES anything sweet, even the super sweet frosting on bakery cakes! We did not add the ice cream although it would have been good it would have made me sick. I think the next time I make this I will use (only a little) less sugar and possibly use granny smiths to give it little tang to it. For normal people I think you could easily get six servings out of this maybe more if you add ice cream but for people like me whose servings tend to run on the larger size, you can get four.
I will be making this again! If you give it a try let me know what you think.
