Baked Mac and Cheese - Everyone's favorite classic mac and cheese! Super simple, super easy and super quick. You'll never want the boxed stuff ever again!

Greetings from Chicago!

We did it. We finally moved to the Midwest after 20 years of living in California.

It almost feels a bit surreal as we cope with the 22 degree weather. I mean, it was 65 degrees when we left LA!

But honestly, it feels like home. Except home is filled with 17 unopened boxes filled with my kitchen stuff.

So I need to unpack as fast as possible so I can never leave my Chicago house and instead, nest inside with my new electric blanket and the coziest homemade mac and cheese ever.

Baked Mac and Cheese - Everyone's favorite classic mac and cheese! Super simple, super easy and super quick. You'll never want the boxed stuff ever again!

This is your classic mac and cheese – there are no surprises here and there’s no fuss at all. It’s simple, it’s quick, and it’s completely made from scratch.

It’s perfectly cheesy without being too gummy, and the crunchy tops are just to die for before you get into that creamy heaven underneath.

You can of course choose to bake these in individual ramekins to avoid any kind of sharing or you can dump the entire mixture into a 2-qt baking dish.

Either works. It’s just that sharing can be a bit difficult on this one.

Baked Mac and Cheese

Everyone’s favorite classic mac and cheese! Super simple, super easy and super quick. You’ll never want the boxed stuff ever again!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound elbow pasta
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 (12-ounce) cans evaporated milk*
  • 12 ounces shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese, about 3 cups, divided
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Whisk in flour, paprika and onion powder until lightly browned, about 1 minute.
  4. Gradually whisk in evaporated milk until slightly thickened, about 4-5 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat. Stir in 2 cups cheddar cheese and Parmesan. Stir in pasta; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  6. Divide pasta mixture into 5 (10-ounce) or 6 (8-ounce) ramekins or ovenproof bowls.* Place onto a baking sheet; sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheddar cheese.
  7. Place into oven and bake until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
  8. Serve immediately, garnished with chives, if desired.

Notes:

*I do not recommend substituting milk as the sauce will break in the oven, and the consistency will vary quite a bit.

*If you do not have ramekins or ovenproof bowls, this can also be baked in a 2qt baking dish.

This easy Instant Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe, made with beef brisket, cabbage and carrots comes out so tender and delicious! Perfect for St Patrick's Day!

It may be the most famous dish to eat on St. Patrick’s Day, but this Irish-American corned beef recipe is a favorite in my house any time of the year. It would typically simmer all day on the stove but thanks to the pressure cooker it only takes 90 minutes for the meat to come out super tender. Of course, if you wish you could also make this in the slow cooker, see my Crock Pot Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe.

Sheet Pan Beef and Broccoli - Say hello to the easiest beef and broccoli of your life! No fuss, less dishes, yet it's 10000x better than take-out. Win-win!

Guys. This beef and broccoli doesn’t get any easier. It just doesn’t.

It cooks on a sheet pan, which means less fuss and less dishes. It’s a win-win for all.

The steak is also incredibly juicy and flavorful while the broccoli is just perfectly crisp-tender.

The only hard part here is making the sauce, except you can easily do that on the stovetop while your beef and broccoli are cooking.

Told you.

It doesn’t get any easier, or quicker here.
