Make Ahead Macaroni and Cheese, a New Venture, and a Mammoth Giveaway


, , , , , , , ,

Creamy, comforting macaroni and cheese with a crunchy topping is a family friendly favorite meal that will not only leave them satisfied, but clamoring for more. The recipe is scaled to provide two meals—one for now, and one to freeze for later.

Happy Monday, Friends! I’ve been sitting on a little news as I awaited my first article to go live. Once a month I’ll be contributing a new recipe to the Hip Homeschool Moms website. Most of you know that we homeschool. Although I’m pretty sure that I’ve never been accused of being hip, the founders of Hip Homeschool Moms seem to think otherwise and asked if I’d like to be a contributor to their website.

As a long time fan of the website, I gave them an enthusiastic YES! Hip Homeschool Moms has been a continual source of information and encouragement to me since we began homeschooling nearly four years ago. (Eek! Has it really been that long?!) Naturally I was honored to be approached to write for them. I figure that if I can possibly encourage someone, anyone, through a recipe then how could I refuse?

I’m sharing my Make Ahead Macaroni and Cheese recipe this month because it’s everything a macaroni and cheese recipe should be: creamy, cheesy, comforting, and it freezes beautifully. A perfect recipe to have on hand for the hectic school days ahead!

My recipes shared on Hip Homeschool Moms will focus on simple abundance. The school year is a busy time and in all of the activity, dinner can quickly become an afterthought. That’s precisely the reason behind my creating straight-forward recipes that are either scaled to feed a crowd or that easily make enough for two meals. I always feel better knowing that I have a dinner waiting in the freezer for the crazy nights when the meal plan falls apart. You will too!
