Comfort Food Recipe - Homemade Mac & Cheese


- 1(16 ounce) package elbow macaroni
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp. dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
- 1/8 tsp. white pepper
- 3 cups milk
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
- 1 tsp. dijon mustard
- 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1 tbsp. butter, melted

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the macaroni, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm, about 8 minutes. Drain well.
  3. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. When the butter starts to foam and bubble, stir in the flour; cook on medium heat until flour just begins to turn pale yellow, 3 to 4 minutes. Add thyme, cayenne pepper, and white pepper; cook and stir another minute, then whisk in 1 cup of milk until smooth. Pour in remaining milk and whisk again. Bring the sauce just to a simmer.
  4. Stir in nutmeg, Worcestershire sauce, and salt; simmer on medium-low heat until thickened, about 8 minutes, whisking often. Turn heat off, then add 2 1/4 cups of Cheddar cheese; stir until melted and combined. Add Dijon mustard.
  5. Transfer the macaroni into a casserole dish, then pour in the cheese sauce; stir to thoroughly combine sauce with pasta. Mix panko bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon melted butter in a small bowl, and sprinkle crumbs on top of macaroni and cheese. Sprinkle remaining 3/4 cup of Cheddar cheese on top.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until bread crumbs and Cheddar cheese topping are golden brown, about 20 minutes.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Overnight Oatmeal - Cinnamon Apple

Overnight Oatmeal - Cinnamon Apple

  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1½ cups coconut milk
  • 1½ cups water
  • 2 apples (cored, peeled, diced)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
Optional for Topping
  • Additional cinnamon or brown sugar
  • Chopped nuts such as almonds, walnuts, pecans, etc.
  • Fruit such as banana slices, fresh apple, or berries
  1. Spray the inside of your slow cooker with oil thoroughly. This step is very important!
  2. Add all ingredients to the slow cooker – oats, coconut milk, water, apples, brown sugar, coconut oil, cinnamon, and sea salt. Stir to combine well.
  3. Cook on low for 5-7 hours depending on your cooker. Some take longer and some are faster. We recommend trying a test run during the day to see how long your slow cooker takes before trying overnight.
  4. Serve and allow to cool. If desired, add toppings of your choice.

Serves 6-8
Be sure to use STEEL CUT OATS. These are heartier and take longer to cook so they are better for slow cooking.
Experiment with different flavors and fruits.

Magic Reindeer Food

Help Santa & his Reindeer find your home on Christmas Eve and have fun with the kids at the same time!
