Macaroni & Cheese Please {A Recipe}

Happy Friday Pretty Bitties.
Can we all let out a nice sigh of amen for it finally being Friday.
So, this week has been....
Great, but tiring.
My bestie from Nashville decided to show her pretty little face last evening and surprise all of us Indiana folk with her arrival.
It was beyond perfect.
At the surprise of her face-I canceled my massage-and did this instead.
Sorry massage, you are going to have to wait until next week to rest my weary bones.

Because I didn't have much time to brew up some something a little more creative for today,
I thought I would share with you a recent macaroni and cheese recipe I made.
If you haven't heard, I'm on the verge of needing to admit myself into Mac & Cheese Rehab.
Except that will never happen because that is quite possibly the dumbest suggestion I've ever said.
So let's get cookin eh? 

1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup cream cheese, softened
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup gouda cheese, shredded
1 cup swiss cheese, shredded
1 cup muenster cheese, shredded
2 cups whole milk
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder

  • Shred all cheeses

  • Cook 2 cups macaroni noodles in salted boiling water for only about 6 minutes -
    do not over cook as they will continue to cook in the oven.
    While noodles are cooking: mix eggs, milk, cream cheese, melted butter and spices together in large mixing bowl.

    Drain noodles.
    Add noodles and all the shredded cheese to egg mixture and
    Pour into a greased 9x13 baking pan..
     {Can we just stop and appreciate what happened when I dumped the noodles out of the strainer.
    Who knew I had the talent in me to make a macaroni brain...}
     Bake in a 325 degree oven for 45 minutes.
    Serve up and enjoy :)

    Special thanks to my sister for hosting this little get together where I got to serve up the dish.
    She is a gem.
    Here are a few snapshots of the event:

    PS. While this dish was good and well received-it still hasn't beat out THIS Mac & Cheese recipe
    (Trust me friends, I have made roughly 30+ different recipes in the past two years...
    If I say it is good, it is good.)

    Now, get off this blog immediately and go to:
    for more Delicious {and much healthier} Recipes...And
    For a lot better and exciting photos.
    Minus the one of the macaroni brain. That one pretty much rocked.

    PS. If you have emailed me in the last 72 hours-I will respond.
    I just need to tame down my social life a tad..
    Expect a response in the next two days.
    Thank you for your patience ;)
