The past week-end, I had the pleasure of having my dear nephews over. Just looking at their tall structures remind me that time has certainly moved on. Anyway, whenever they are around, I know for sure that I’ve to prepare their all time fave, good-old macaroni/cheese. And, the past week-end was no different. They could eat it endlessly.
Like my nephews, I love a good macaroni/cheese dish.I feel like a kid again. I love the smooth and cheesy delight that always puts a smile on my face and set my palate skipping for sheer joy. The trouble is, when it’s really good, I oftentimes overindulge a bit more than I should.However, I’ve found the perfect solution that makes me and my loved ones guilt-free.
My solution lies with my well used muffin tins which I’ve made many cupcakes and muffins over the years. Boy, if only those tins could talk. As a result, the past week-end found me dusting off my twelve cup muffin tins which turned out to be the perfect serving for each person.
In the past, I used to make my macaroni/cheese with different cheeses. And, I must state that my loved ones had great reviews. However, lately, I’ve been turned on and enticed into making my macaroni/cheese with only sharp cheddar. And, that’s what I did over the week-end.
What I like about cheddar cheese is its tangy and nutty taste. And because it has a complex flavor, it doesn’t need to share the spotlight with other cheeses. It can stand on its own and create an awesome dish.
Therefore, on the week-end when I once again chose to make my cheddar macaroni and cheese goodness, it didn’t disappoint. It was delicious and succulent. Those cheesy cupcake goodness were awesome. And of course they were greatly approved by those tall and handsome nephews of mine. They were happy and so was I.
