Pressure Cooker Macaroni and Cheese

I bought a pressure cooker several months ago. I’ve been slowly learning to really make use of it and recently I decided to make more of an effort to try some new things.

I’ve got a post planned soon with some general info and ideas on using a pressure cooker, but first I wanted to share this recipe for Pressure Cooker Macaroni and Cheese.

Pressure Cooker Macaroni and Cheese

 

Of all the different mac and cheese recipes I’ve tried, this one is the winner.  It’s creamy, cheesy and homemade.  And it’s faster than the other methods.  I think it’s even faster than my other mac and cheese.  You know, the one with the processed cheese product, which I do love, but isn’t very healthy.

I love that this recipe is homemade, but doesn’t require you to make the sauce separately from the macaroni.  It’s fewer dishes to wash and easier prep.   [Read more...]

Cheesy Chicken Chili Mac – Make it Quick with Rotisserie Chicken and Macaroni

Cheesy Chicken Chili Mac

Earlier this week I shared lots of recipes for making use of rotisserie chicken.  Here’s another one for you.  If you keep cooked chicken in your freezer, you’ll be able to make this recipe in about 20 minutes.  All the ingredients are pantry items that we tend to keep on hand.

The recipe comes together quickly.  You’ll make a quick white sauce and add cheese to it.  I love an easy meal that also is homemade.

Cheddar cheese and tomatoes with green chilies help make this dish full of flavor.  My kids loved this one and so did I.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it:   [Read more...]

Swiss Macaroni and Cheese with Smoked Sausage

Need a little weeknight comfort food?  This one’s for you then.

This recipe came about when I looked up from my computer and realized it was already 5:30 and I hadn’t started dinner.  (And no, the irony that I’m a food blogger and still have this problem is not lost on me.)

I had a smoked sausage in the fridge and a daughter begging for mac & cheese.  But I didn’t want to make the usual kind.  A rummage through the cheese drawer yielded a block of Swiss and a new recipe came into being.

Here’s what you’ll need:  [Read more...]

Pepper Jack Mac and Cheese with Broccoli

I’ve been experimenting with pepper jack cheese in various recipes lately.  Macaroni and cheese seemed the perfect dish to highlight this ingredient.  Because I was afraid that using all pepper jack would be too spicy for the kids, I went with half pepper jack and half monterey jack.  It was good, but next time we’ll use all pepper jack.  Even the kids thought it would be good with the extra kick.  I originally intended to serve the broccoli along side the macaroni, but tossed it all together at the last minute.  It was a hit with everyone.

Macaroni and Cheese & Macaroni and Tomatoes

macaroni-and-cheese-done

Two recipes for the price of one today.  Although, they are both so easy I’m not sure they qualify as recipies.  Macaroni and Cheese gets made and served frequently at our house.  I think it ranks between the Kraft boxed kind and the delicious homemade baked kind.  It’s fast, creamy and easy.
