What is the one thing not to do when making homemade Mac & Cheese?
When you have a group of children eating, it is always a good idea to serve Macaroni and Cheese. When my kids were little, homemade Mac & Cheese was a staple. My kids are now teenagers, and they still love Mac & Cheese. They truly get excited when they find out my slow cooker is full of their favorite creamy, delicious food. Try using your crock-pot when fixing Mac & Cheese. I have used several types of pasta when cooking crock-pot Mac & Cheese. You will see two different kinds below. My kids say their favorite is macaroni noodles. Making Mac & Cheese is so easy to do and extremely delicious and creamy. The secret and the one thing not to do when you are cooking homemade Mac & Cheese in the oven or cooking it in the slow cooker is not to dry it out by cooking it to long. Mac & Cheese is supposed to be creamy and cheesy. Do not let it cook until it is completely set and hard. Creamy Cheesy Mac & Cheese is probably the ultimate comfort food.
Comfort food reminds me of how my comfort comes from the Lord. So many times in my life, I have had to Trust God that He was going to work everything out. I have a son who has had 17 brain surgeries including months and months of hospital stays and seizures. I have had a gun pointed to my head during a fast food robbery. I have moved due to my husband’s job seven times. My husband and I adopted two children with Reactive Attachment Disorder and many other issues. My list could go on and on. I am sure you too have had many difficult times in your life. When life gets difficult, we have to find comfort and peace in God. I know God has worked every one of my difficult times out. I pray that He will comfort you too.

I believe the secret to building stronger families that stick together, communicate more, and love each other is to cook together, eating around the table together, play together, vacation together, and share God’s love.
