craving: mac & cheese.

what's better than gooey cheese and pasta?! macaroni and cheese is the ultimate comfort food but for some reason my husband doesn't like it. sooo when he is on call i usually take that opportunity to indulge in some cheesy goodness. usually when i make mac and cheese i go for the box stuff and i add in some fresh chopped veggies (my favorites are broccoli, cauliflower or zucchini). someday i'll ditch the boxed stuff and try one these tasty homemade recipes:: 



what are your favorite mac and cheese mix-ins?

ps i was thrilled to see our wedding on style me pretty illinois!

  6. OMG best post ever. Mac and cheese is my favorite meal. Hmmm my favorite mix in? More cheese of course. If I have to add something else it would be truffle oil? Oooh or bacon. Nothing healthy though :)

  10. When I lived in Europe I was forced to ditch the boxed stuff and make my own. I'm so glad! It's easy peasy to make and oh-so-delicious. I love to mix up the cheeses. I made chicken taco mac n' cheese just last week with some fresh salsa. Loved it.
