Mac n Cheese My Way

Loads of sodium and artificial coloring agents did not look like a good option for me to feed my kid. It was my husband who was very particular about not feeding my son packaged/processed/frozen foods. Initially I felt almost unrealistic to shield our son from processed foods. But now, I am very happy we took that path. I am not saying we never fed our kid any store bought food (He has had the store bought boxed mac n cheese once so far). But I try my best to make homemade versions of the store bought boxed foods.

Store bought mac n cheese would be a really big time saver, but homemade version is easy to make and it always good to know what goes into the food that you feed your kid. It might not look anywhere near the store bought version, but I promise homemade version tastes so much better. I have used cream cheese here in this recipe. But Vermont white cheddar works well too. Sometimes I also, add veggies like broccoli or carrots or green beans to it.


  1. Macaroni- 1/4  cup
  2. Butter - 1 tablespoon
  3. Garlic - 1 clove grated (optional)
  4. Cream Cheese - 1 1/2 tablespoons
  5. Salt & Pepper - to taste
  6. Whole Milk - 1/2 cup
  1. Boil water in a pot and cook macaroni until it becomes soft. Drain the water and keep the macaroni aside.
  2. In another pan, heat butter and add grated garlic and saute until fragrant.
  3. Add milk and bring it to a boil.
  4. Add the cooked macaroni along with cheese, salt and pepper.
  5. Let it cook until the sauce thickens. I remove it from heat just before it thickens because the sauce tends to get very thick once cooled down.
Serve it with a side of steamed vegetables.
