Easy Peasy Mac n' Cheesey

Mac n' cheese is a classic dish that everyone loves. Now if you didn't know, mac n' cheese doesn't only have to come from a box, it is super easy to make your own and it tastes twice as good. Another great thing about it is that it can be made completely your own. One day for lunch I made it and added ham for some extra goodness. There are many things you can add to it like vegetables or meats. The basic recipe is as simple as this:


Elbow Pasta
Splash of Milk (more as needed)
Cheese (I use a combo of smoked gouda, havarti, and american)
Anything else (such as bacon, ham, peas, or carrots)


Bring a pot of water to a boil then add the pasta. Once the pasta is plump and cooked to your liking, strain the pasta and put it back in the pot.

Add a splash of milk and as much cheese as you want (add extra cheese to make it even cheesier.) You can also add meats or veggies to it.

As you can see, the recipe is super easy. You can make it with just american or cheddar cheese the first time but then you can experiment with different cheeses and different ingredients.


  1. Great job, Ava! Though, Aunt Jennie and Uncle Michael only have a kitchen because it came with the house, and will need you to whip us up something. Keep up the great work, and your passion for cooking.
    Love and miss you,
    Aunt Jennie, Uncle Mike, and Mackenzie

    1. Hey, I'd love to come over and make you something sometime.
