Easiest Mac and Cheese (Recipe Swap: Comfort Food)

Food is a great comforter. There is just something about the connection between our taste buds and our brain that can do wonders. I don’t pretend to understand it, but the right foods can make us feel better when the rain has spoiled our parade, when the dog has eaten our homework, when no one likes us and we’re tempted to go eat worms.

There are some foods that are generally known to bring comfort, like chicken noodle soup or macaroni and cheese. Usually, “comfort foods” involve a few fattening ingredients and leave your belly feeling full. And they always taste great!

One of my favorites is the Mac and Cheese that FishPapa and I have been making forever. For some odd reason, most of our kids don’t like it – they have melted cheese issues. That’s okay, that leaves lots for FP and me! I make a batch of this for us and a batch of plain noodles for the kids.

If no one in your family has a cheese psychosis, you’re gonna love this! It’s very easy, very make-ahead and it freezes well also.

How about you? What’s your family’s favorite comfort food. There’s bound to be something you enjoy when you are sick, snowed in, or just need a little pick me up. Today’s the day to share it!

Can’t wait to see what you cook up on a rainy day!
