Tonight I made Vegan Buffalo Mac and Cheese. I started with this recipe for Vegan Mac and Cheese and made a few changes. vegan buffalo mac and cheese
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook , you know the other day I had a craving for Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. And, you already know I satisfied that craving – not shamefully, either. This macaroni and cheese recipe is almost as easy as making it out of a box, but much better for you and dare I say more delicious! I’ve tried other homemade macaroni and cheese recipes in the past, but never liked the taste, consistency, or the steps included to prep. Mac ‘n cheese is meant to be simple.
Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese (Giveaway)
Last week was raining and I knew just what I wanted to whip up for dinner….a quick and easy homemade mac and cheese. Who needs a box mix when you can have homemade mac in 5 minutes?! I will say, that I had cooked pasta in my fridge from a previous dinner, so make sure you cook some extra pasta to have ready for this recipe.
February 21st, 2012 When I first graduated from college, and was living in a dreary little apartment, mac and cheese was one of my few specialties. Granted it was straight from a box, but it was one of those meals that made me feel like I was home. I shared a gussied up truffle version a couple of years back ( here ), and since the Academy Awards are just days away, I thought I’d make it more party-friendly. I followed this recipe and found the bite-sized portions to be even more appealing, and were just as good served hot as they were room temperature.
Happy Monday! And my second official Magazine/Cookbook day! awhoohoo ! This week I wanted something easy because I was focusing on cupcake making.... more on that later ☺...

Do me a favor: MAKE THIS PASTA SAUCE FOR DINNER TONIGHT! I think you’ll thank me. It’s absolutely, positively, hands down, 100% the best pasta sauce I have ever tasted. And I’ve had a lot of pasta sauce experience so you must understand how bold of a statement I just made. The best part is: I made it myself !
I can say this is the best macaroni and cheese recipe ever because it's not really my recipe. I tweaked it a tiny bit - basically made it even more fattening - but otherwise, it's someone else's. It's from someone named Bev, who posted her recipe on Recipezaar and to whom I am eternally grateful. See, macaroni and cheese is pretty much my all-time favorite food. Always has been. Cases in point:
There’s nothing that can be said. But there is much to be eaten. Come, my child…come.
November 13, 2008 by joejhorn A few weeks ago I started a quest for some good mac and cheese. Nancy makes a killer mac-n-cheese but I wanted my own. I’m sure I frustrate the crap out of Nancy sometimes because I’m always looking for something better when it comes to food and recipes. Now mind you , this mac-n-cheese is not Bobby Flay mac-n-cheese with some crazy-sexy ingredients, but it is really, really good! I would make it for any of my friends and be proud.
