Easy Macaroni And Cheese with Recipe



Ingredients
8 Tbl flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tspPepper
1 TBL Cornstarch
Put in a cup mixed together.

8 Tbl Butter
4 cups of 2%Milk room temp
1 Cup Colby  cheese
2 Cups Velveeta cheese cut up in chunks
16 oz Elbow Macaroni cooked for 12 min drained. Do the Noodles first.
ROOM TEMP INGREDIENTS MAKE IT EASIER.
1 deep casserole dish sprayed with Pam.

Directions
Do the Noodles first. Add Butter melt in big skillet on low, add flour mixture usings a wisk to mix should see a  thick mixture called a roux start adding milk little by little using a wisk keep stirring constantly. Until all milk and ingredients are combined. Keep wisking, this is like making a gravy. As soon as the mixture boils and thickens add the cheese to combine it's ok at this point to put the skillet off the burner to add the cheese than put skillet back on low burner to melt the cheese completely in the skillet. Add Elbow macaroni to skillet with cheese mixture mix together add to Casserole dish Bake 400 for 20 minutes. FEEDS 8 people. 

Should bubble on top when done. Dinner is served. I had this dinner with Garlic bread. Put cool remaining macaroni in a bowl with plastic wrap on top and put in fridge. 

TIP reheating the Macaroni in microwave safe bowl add plastic wrap on top of bowl add a vent at a corner. Add a few Tbl of butter on Macaroni. Good at 2 minutes on high take plastic wrap off and eat. It's so filling to eat. A bowl a person will do.

2 cups=16 Oz
8 Tbl is about 1/4 cup



If you have A Problem Getting THE Gravy To COOK YOU Might Wanna Put the stove up To 2 more degrees than back down to low. Eventually it will get thick. This Macaroni and cheese is so easy to heat back up and still is not dry. Before I start cooking I lay all my ingredients out on a counter measured out in cups or bowls. It's easier to cook fast when you do. I took a photo below that depicts Cold Macaroni and Cheese. I have to be creative when I cook because we don't always feel like going out to eat or affording to go out to eat. Share with all your friends. I love my readers. I really love readers.

Apple Crisp recipe Easy and Copycat Apple Crisp mix like the stores


Apple Crisp recipe 

Makes 2 servings
Put in bowl
1 TBl flour
4 Tbl brown sugar
1 heal from bread make bread crumbs
SPRINKLE OF CINNAMON
1/4 cup half and half

Skillet
Water
4 APPLES CUT CORED AND PEELED

Add peeled and cored, cut apples in a skillet with water just enough to cover tops I use water half way on high do this and apple slices will eventually soak up all water and will be soft.

<a target="_blank" href="http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=622399&u=638132&m=53789&urllink=&afftrack="><img src="http://www.shareasale.com/image/53789/160_600_01.jpg"  border="0"></a>  

     Another skillet add 2tbl Butter let butter melt on medium heat than add  the flour mixture to the butter and mix than add half and half. 1 min. 

  Once apples in other skillet have no water left add the mixture of the flour mixture stir to combine than add 1 TBl of butter and sprinkle on top brown sugar serve with icecream. 



   Might take 15 to 20 minutes or less. The thing that takes long is the cutting and letting the apples soak up the water on high heat. The water will bubble and evaporate in the apples. I use Honey crisp and Red Delicious apples. 

.Alternative version instead of the dry items above or breadcrumbs my copycat

  So much better than the store. 

Apple Crisp dry mix
3 Tsp flour
1 tsp Cornstarch
6 Tbl brown sugar
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
Add all together in a bowl add to 2tbl of butter than add to the apple mixture than add half and half. Stir to combine sprinkle some brown sugar on top and serve.

    My husband loves this recipe. Serve Apple Crisp with  scoop of Vanilla ice cream. I made this recipe myself. If you love it comment.For all my fans that see the Volcanica adds please support me by clicking the links and buying a bag of coffee. Even just a small bag would help and it's 10% off right now. Thanks. Have a great day. An Apple a Day Keeps the Dr. Away.

Basily Stainless Steel Ice cubes review

  


   I was not paid for this review. I received the product free to review. Don't you just hate watered down drinks. You have a hot bottle of wine and you just want a cold drink and regular ice cubes make you unhappy.  You can buy Basily Stainless Steel Ice cubes. Basily Stainless Steel Ice Cubes do not leave you with an aftertaste like some water ices do. Forget watered down Wine because Basily will not water down your good expensive drink. You can use Basily in any drink. I find that the less of a drink you put in a glass like three fourths up will get cold. Using Caution when putting the Stainless Ice Cubes In the glass.
I used tea I will try out other drinks. Actually Basily Stainless Steel Ice cubes keeps drinks colder longer. I tried the tea and it  is cold for an hour. Basily Stainless Steel Ice cubes are backed by Fda. Are recyclable. I just wash  Basily Stainless Steel in warm water and soap. Dry with paper towel place in bag that it came with and place in freezer for a couple hours. Within hours I can enjoy a nice cocktail without the ice. Watered down drinks make me crazy. I don't mind having Ice water. I just think that Ice cubes from water ruin the taste of a perfectly good drink.  After the Basily Stainless Steel Ice cubes are in the freezer I take them out and put them in a drink I want to instantly make cold.  The more stainless steel ice cubes you use the more cold the drink is. The pack contained four stainless steel ice cubes. The touch of the cubes are cold. The cubes are shaped in a heart and have Basily name on them. Love the taste of my drinks. Basily Stainless Steel Ice cubes are great and do not take up much room. I would buy another set and give as gifts. Would you enter a sweeps to  Basily Stainless Steel Ice cubes? I'm working with Volcanica coffee on buying some coffee and offering review, than a giveaway they'll sponsor. Does this sound good. I have to go now. Sorry for little to small posts. Have a great weekend. Love them Royals. Can't wait to watch World Series on TV of course would love to have went but can't afford $1,500. How about you?Check out my YouTube video of Basily Stainless Steel Ice cubes review. I just love my readers. Next post will be about Easy Simple Apple Crisp for Two. I made it yesterday and hubby loves it.

Lego Land KC Discovery Center Visit with Pictures

         Sometimes the best thing to do when  you go to the Lego Land Discovery Center in Kansas City,Missouri is to plan ahead for the tickets. The best time to go is at 11-12 time slot. It's when you'll have the most chances of getting in and not having to wait to long. Here are some Pictures Below of the Place. My mom,sister,her two kids my nephews went and I was trying to help out there with the kids. The place is more for kids ages 5-15 but If your kid is 2 and under their free. A group picture we didn't pick up that's first. You ride down an elevator to get to Lego Land. Their was a Mini world of miniature places of Kc. I didn't take very many pictures because it's so much better in person. KC arrowhead, kansas speedway, Royals stadium all in minitures. Their is no tour guide. I would recommend the activity packs you can buy for kids because that helps you know where to go next and also get a prize in the end gift shop when you ask because he was a birthday kid the gift shop employee gave him a free poster. Make sure the kids wear socks so they can play in the play area of tunnels and slides. My nephew enjoyed the race car building his own car and he won all the races. Their is a whole section dedicated to Star Wars where you can say hi to Rd-d2 and his friend C-3PO. Don't forget to ride the Merlin ride that goes round and round the ride moves up if you peddle on the bike peddles. I rode with the smallest member of the group and he couldn't reach the peddles so ours stayed lower to the ground. But I'm sure he actually jumped back in line to want to do it again. The first ride is a Camelot ride where the ride has virtual screens and Lazer guns to shoot bad trolls on the screen. The Wizard of Oz was neat in Legos.  Within 3 to 4 hours the kids wanted to eat and we left after that. We had the cake I made for my nephews Birthday. He turned 9. He was so excited to see Aunt Amanda got the cake topper of Eminem he loves. The Fondant was tricky my mom helped roll it out. So we could get it on the frosted cake, cut it and pipe around cake topper. These are not all the photos I took but there my favorite ones. LEGOLAND is more for kids and worth going once when your adult, if the child is fairly young they would appreciate it more when their older. It's an experience. All kids would love this Legoland  for kids. I was not compensated for this article or paid for review. If you come to Kc check it out best if you preorder tickets online 24 hours ahead and have confirmation number to hand to the cashier towards front. I have to get going. Bye for now.

Donut making easy and cheap

Donut making easy and cheap

I used 

1 can buttermilk biscuits
1 inch of vegetable/canola oil mixed. Probably close to a cup.
1 skillet
1 frosting tip to make donut holes
1 tub of frosting Pillsbury
Optional sprinkles.


    Add oil to skillet let it preheat on medium my stove top I put on setting 6 for frying not high. Next cut out holes with frosting tip in middle the cut outs you can use to fry also later. Drop each biscuit into the preheated grease cook about 1 to 2 minutes one  side shows brown flip turn on other side. Donuts are done when both sides are light brown. Move donuts to a plate with paper towels on it to drain grease. Add a little coat of frosting on top and sides, when it's somewhat cool add more frosting and added sprinkles on top. Cost to make 3 bucks with Aldi brand biscuits and oil. Regular grocery Store price  a dozen cost 10 bucks. If you go to my YouTube videos you can see a video of me making these.
