Baked Macaroni

Think of mealtime as a celebration. After our whole family has survived another day, with all of its ups and downs, we come together in the evening and celebrate together" - J. Baaadsguard

The Little Girls are always so cute when they set the table -- table cloth, plate chargers (red was the choice today), vintage pot holders and candle light!

Dinner Menu: Applewood Bacon Pork Loin, Saute Butter Squash, Peas and Maccaroni.

Nothing says comfort like Macaroni and Cheese, right? I was really surprised at how moist this Baked Macaroni and Cheese turned out. It is a new favorite.

8 oz (2 cups) dry elbow macaroni
2 Tbsp nonfat dry milk
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 Tbspo butter, melted
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups (12 oz) Velveeta
1/2 cup of Velveeta shredded

Cook pasta according to package directions, and drain. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl over low heat, mix dry milk, flour and butter while gradually adding boiling water.  Beat constantly.  Add half the cheese to the mixture, beating until the sause is smooth and creamy. Stir in macaroni, salt and the remaining cheese. Transfer to a lightly greased 2 - quart baking dish, and cover with foil. Bake for 25 minutes, then remove and sprinkle  with remaining cups of chese. Return to oven long enough to melt the cheese.


  1. Have you ever tried Tasha Tudor's recipe for mac n' cheese? Nothing tops it! Of course it is full of fat, but once in awhile is okay...LOL!

  2. A pretty table can make many a meal taste doesn't sound like this meal needed any help, but...
    Will like to try that macaroni and cheese recipe....we love homemade mac and cheese!

  4. Such a pretty table with the family all around. Your mac & cheese recipe sounds good. We'll have to try it sometime. The curriculum we use is abeka. We really like it. I have tried a few others but this one works for us. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  5. Table time is so precious. I loved how you described how your dd's set the table with all the paraphernalia and took such care in setting it. This is such a good training for their future homes. Good Job.


  6. Suzanne, Yes I have tried her recipe. I typically don't like baked macaroni. But, this recipe is very moist but it might be because I actually double the cheese. :)
