Mac & Cheese
Posted March 21, 2011 at 02:01 am
So Hazel's mom really isn't anything like my mom, except for these two things: my mom is also a living breathing Facebook when it comes to hometown gossip; and she makes the best mac & cheese in the world.

My birthday is actually this week - my first 30th birthday of many, in fact! - and Hazel's birthday was picked to be the day after mine, the 24th. So in honor of both of our awesome moms, here's my mom's fantastic mac & cheese recipe:

Mom's Mac & Cheese

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Melt together in a saucepan:  
  • 2 Tbsp butter

  • 2 Tbsp corn starch

  • ... allow to thicken, then add:
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup milk (start with 1/2 c)

  • slices of sharp white cheddar cheese (as much as you see fit)

  • Cook up some noodles; rinse, strain, and toss into an oven-safe container. Mix in sauce, and top with bread crumbs.

    Bake for 15-20 min.

    Devour and pass out due to extreme joy.

    This recipe can, of course, be made gluten-free by using GF noodles (Mrs. Leepers are my favorite) and gluten-free bread crumbs. Enjoy!

    I also love the podcast My Brother My Brother And Me!

    My old pal R. Stevens and I used to do a podcast called Coffee and Cider! It was mostly about being work-obsessed idiots and human beings who like beverages and have cats.
