Homemade Ranch Macaroni and Cheese

Who doesn’t like a traditional comfort food?

Macaroni and Cheese in all it’s cheesy, ooey, gooey goodness! Regular homemade macaroni and cheese is super yummy, but try adding a twist and see what happens.

My kids ate the whole pot minus a single scoopful which my son then took to school the next day with him for lunch. It was a huge hit and tastes great. We ate it as a side dish, even though there was certainly enough to make it the main course.

    1. @Maria and @Sheri – I hope you both like it. We love it.

      I do have one tip though – my son said that when he reheated it, he added milk to make it creamier. So if you have any leftovers (almost not possible unless you make as much as I do – 5 kid and all) – use milk when you’re ready to reheat it. He didn’t know much he added -a couple of tablespoons – makes it moist and creamy again!

  1. I make homemade mac & cheese about once a week. I can tell my family’s getting bored with the same old recipe, so we’ll be trying this one this week! Thank you for sharing this at just the right time.
