Are you ready for your next cooking challenge? Since this past week’s Chopped challenge didn’t yield many results, I am mixing it up this week….

This Week’s Challenge:

Mac and Cheese!

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it…Submit a recipe either for your very best homemade mac and cheese, OR your favorite way to “enhance” a box of mac and cheese…OR both!  Mac and cheese is a staple in any home with young kids. Why not bolster your recipe collection a bit with fun, new ways to prepare a classic, or make a store-bought favorite even better?! Mac and cheese is a recipe I love to play around with, so  I am excited to see what all of you come up with! Email your recipes to me using the “Contact Me” form at the top of my blog!
