Hey friends!!!!

My mom-in-law Jens and I are at it again!
Yes! This time we got together to make a super quick, super easy, super yummy meal:

Homemade Mac and Cheese
Open Face Chicken Caprese Sandwiches


 Homemade Mac and Cheese


  • 1 1/2 cup elbows cooked as directed in package (al dente)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 8 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese


    #1 Melt and stir butter, add salt and pepper (you can add to taste =).

    #2 Stir in flour, cooking over low heat until bubbly. Remove from stove. 

    #3 Slowly stir in milk. Return to a boil.

    #4 Add cheese. With wooden spoon, stir in cheese to melt.

    #5 Add melted cheese to cooked macaroni.

    #6 Transfer the mix to a 2 qt. baking dish lightly coated with cooking spray

    #7 Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 mins. (until browned at the edges)

    #8 EAT!

    I'm so excited I finally learned how to make homemade mac and cheese! (specially for my little  kiddo... and the big kiddo, too ;) Since it's not a popular meal in Argentina, I had no clue how to make it!

    Woot woot!

    Tomorrow, I'll post the recipe for the 
    Open-face Chicken Caprese sandwiches
