Macaroni & Cheese....a cheesemongers favorite recipe

As promised....Mac & Cheese. 

1 lb elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
1/2 lb. good quality cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 lb Vlaskaas (or other aged gouda cheese), grated
1 lb sour cream
1 stick butter, melted
3 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Cook pasta according to package directions and drain.  When fully drained, mix with sour cream until pasta is evenly coated.

Mix together melted butter, eggs and milk.

In a large casserole dish (larger is better for this dish) place 1/2 of the pasta, cover with 1/2 the grated cheeses and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.  Layer the remaining pasta and cheese.

Pour egg/milk/butter mixture evenly over the pasta/cheese.  Cover dish with foil or tight fitting lid and bake 35 minutes.   Remove cover and bake an additional 15 minutes until golden brown.

Devour, repeat.

Happy New Year!

A whole new year.

So sorry for being out of touch during the holidays.  I was limiting the areas of crazy in my life.

We had a great holiday with all of ours girls home, lots of food, work, twinkle lights, laughs and even a bit of lounging around.

I've been catching up on end-of-the-year stuff, new cookbooks and novels, STILL potty-training little Henry and may even get my Christmas cards sent out before February :) 

I also had to do a bit of soul searching as to how I would move forward in 2013 with various things, this blog included.

Over the last years I've been sharing all sorts of weird stuff from my pups to a disease called PLEVA to ridiculous political bs going on in our small town, to furniture refinishing.....

So I'm thinking of stream lining a bit.  Just doing food? I don't know....I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Happy New Year!
