Easy Mac & Cheese...I mean EASY!

 I grew up with a mother who always put a good meal on the table. Little did I know at the time they weren't always complicated and time consuming. I figured if it tasted good it probably took some great effort. Please don't mistake this as a knock on my mother! I'm actually saying that she's a genius coming up with delicious, quick meals that fed the whole family.
Here's one of our family staples adapted from a Betty Crocker recipe.


What you'll need:
3 TBS butter
2 TBS flour
1 tsp salt
A dash of pepper
2 cups of milk
2 cups of elbow macaroni 
2 cups of shreaded sharp cheddar cheese
Sour dough or focaccia bread cut into cubes

Preheat oven 350 degrees.
Boil macaroni according to package instructions.
In another sauce pan melt butter. Add flour, stir. Add salt & pepper, mix. Let bubble. Add milk, let milk get nice and warm. Add shredded cheese, let it melt.

Drain macaroni and put into a baking dish (9x13). Pour cheese mixture over macaroni and mix. Add bread cubes to the top of the macaroni and place in the oven to bake for 25 minutes (approximately). 
Pull it out of the oven and enjoy!
My husband likes to put ketchup on it...yuck!
To each their own.


Happy Cooking!

High-Waisted Sash Skirt {Tutorial}

Ok so I'm officially on a skirt kick as this is my third one in 2 weeks. With spring in the air I just can't help but want to live in spring things! This diy skirt is similar to the other one I did but this one has a sash and is fuller...which I think is way fun! To purchase this exact fabric go to my etsy shop! If you're not up for making it you're in luck! I now sell it on my etsy shop too! You should also check it out on my friend over at Stylish Petite!

Sweet as a Berry Little Girl Dress {tutorial}

With Valentine's day lurking around the corner it's only natural for a blogger like myself to begin thinking of cute ways to incorporate the holiday. When I came across this strawberry fabric I fell in love with it's sweetness and decided that I would make my daughter a Valentine's day inspired dress. You may remember my Valentine's day inspired onesie from last year...Now if only my daughter would get up and walk in it instead of scoot around on her booty getting the beautiful fabric all dirty! Sigh...someday!
