Mom's Mac and Cheese

homemade macaroni and cheese recipe

I'm not even going to pretend that this Mac and Cheese is healthy.  But I can promise that it is awesome - so cheesy and delicious!  I've been eating this Mac and Cheese for ages.  It's the recipe that my mom always makes, and I've continued to make it myself.  Obviously, I don't recommend eating this very often.  Let's say that moderation is best here (right Paula?).  Despite this sinful recipe, I've actually been doing pretty well with my resolutions of eating healthier, and I tried a barre class tonight.  Have you heard of barre? Have you tried it? Ottawa's first barre studio opened last week - Inside Out Studio.  It's amazing.  Definitely a tough workout.  My whole body was shaking several times throughout the class, but in the end I felt great.

Mom's Mac and Cheese

1 pound small elbow macaroni
1 pound Velveeta cheese, cut into chunks
1 pound Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup skim milk
2 tablespoons flour
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 375°F.  Cook macaroni to al dente (just less than the time suggested on the directions).  Drain the macaroni and place it in a large 9x13 inch buttered pan.  Mix in the flour, then the cheddar and Velveeta cheese.  Salt and pepper the top.  Pour milk into the bottom of the pan to make about half an inch of milk.  Cook at 375°F for about 30 minutes, stirring at least once to combine the cheese.  Broil for a few minutes at the end of the cooking time to make the top a little bit crunchy.


  1. I actually got this recipe originally from my great-step-aunt who lived to be in her 90s! She made this wonderful, creamy, mac and cheese for me the first time when I was 12 years old. I was hooked and had to know how she got it so yummy. Sorry everyone but the Velveeta cheese is the key to the creamy goodness! Aunt Velma ate this dish weekly and she lived a long time so it can't be that bad for you!

  2. I will never get tired of eating Mac and Cheese. It brings back so many memories, and of course, tastes so good. This recipe looks incredible… and now I have a serious mac-and-cheese craving.
