Last night, I made box brownies, but not from a box. I found the recipe on How To Make Homemade Box Mix Style Brownies by Picky Palate They came out better than box. I will no longer need to buy box brownies ever again! I pinned this recipe and will be using it over and over.  Enjoy some great brownies.

Easy mac and cheese

Last night I made one of my family's favorite side dishes.   First some background on the dish. When daddy and I were first living together I only made Kraft mac and cheese, but one night I wanted to try a different mac and cheese. So I had mac and the cheese but nothing else. Here is how I make mac and cheese.

First cook the mac.
Any type of noodle will do just fine. Last night I used
Get a 13x9 pan and spray pan or use butter just so nothing can stick to it.
Now you will need to layer the cheese and mac in the pan until the mac is used up.
 Here is the first layer of cheese.

 Here is the next layer of mac. Just keep going layer by layer until the mac is gone.
Set over at 350 if you have some time before dinner or 400 if everything else is done. Cook just until all the cheese is melted.
The mac and cheese may not look pretty, but daddy's family wants it every time they have a family event.
Just have fun with it. Let me know how yours turned out and if you would add anything to in.

New to this

Today I (the Mommy) started a blog about the life we lead. Daddy works and Mommy stays with the kids. We have school workshop, outside play, kids crafts, movie days and new cooking ideas all the time. With two young kids Miss prissy is 3y going on 6y, and Mr. On the go who is 18m but wants to have everything a 3y has and does. I feel lucky that I have early rising kids that are up and moving at 6am every Moring. Nap time for both kids are at 1pm then crafts or movie time. Hoping that everyone will have a fun time.

Here is where all the ideas come from
