I have searched and searched for a great mac and cheese recipe for years and I have finally figured it out! I don’t want to serve my kids (or myself) processed cheese food, (Velveta) I want to serve them real food ingredients.
Every recipe I saw for using real cheeses called for you to make a roux with flour and butter, and then add liquid and make a sauce and melt the cheese into it. I just never liked it. If you want a recipe with roux, check this healthy mac and cheese.

My daycare kids LOVE my world famous green beans. We had a ton of green beans coming out of the garden and were eating them as fast as we could. We came up with this super yummy fresh green beans recipe.
A few years ago, when I had some older boys enrolled in care, they would ask me to cook this green bean recipe all the time. I would make them as soon as we could get enough green beans from the garden. They dubbed them world famous and who am I to argue with that. Pre-teen boys know where it’s at! It’s comfort food.
Making fresh homemade mozzarella cheese is by far the easiest cheese I have made. It’s unlike any cheese you’ve tasted from the store. It also takes the least amount of special equipment.

All you need is milk, citric acid, liquid rennet, and cheese salt. You will also need a big heavy stock pot to cook it in and a heatproof bowl to continue to heat it in as you knead it.
