Homemade Mac ‘n’ Cheese

About a week ago I was struggling to decide on what to make for lunch. I just so happened to have all the ingredients on hand for homemade mac ‘n’ cheese so decided to whip up a batch. Solid decision.



  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup Flour
  • 4 cups Milk
  • 1 lb Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 lb Pasta
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)


  1. Boil noodles and drain.
  2. Melt all butter and mix in flour. Be sure to get all the lumps out.
  3. When smooth, add milk and turn on high heat. Keep stirring.
  4. When the mixture starts to thicken, turn the heat down and add the cheese. Add slowly and keep stirring so it all melts.
  5. Add noodles to cheese mixture.
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. **Extra Step** You can put this in a baking dish and add parmesan cheese and bread (or cracker) crumbs and bake on 350 for 10-15 min if you want to make an easy to serve casserole.

Serves approximately 10 people.


About thetwentysixthyear

September 6, 2011: I turn twenty-six years old. I live and work in downtown Chicago and really can't complain about too much -- great family, great friends, great life. So this is my personal blog. Experiencing and living my twenty-sixth year. I have no idea what to expect or where I'll be one year from now ... but one thing is certain: I will enjoy the ride.
