The Mac + Cheese Cookbook {Give-a-way!}


On a whim, I put The Mac + Cheese Cookbook on my wish list for Christmas.  Benjamin and Winston both like a good macaroni and cheese.  Well, really who am I kidding?  I love a really good macaroni and cheese!  It was one of the gifts I opened on Christmas morning and as I read through the recipes got really excited about trying to make {almost} all of them! 
All of the recipes call for making the cheese sauces from scratch.  I hardly ever cook anything from scratch so this was a new adventure for me.  And I had a lot of fun doing it!  The book teaches you how to make b├ęchamel sauce, or Mac sauce as the authors call it.  I will promise you this - you will use lots of pans, it will be an arm workout and it will be awesome!
The first recipe I made was as a side for our New Year's Day meal.  The Trailer Mac.  It was macaroni and cheese with hotdogs and smashed up potato chips.  I mean.  It was delicious!  And it warmed up well, which is always a bonus!

The second recipe I made was the Shepherd Mac.  Now, I really like Shepherd's Pie.  My mom made it quite a bit when I was younger.  The idea of using macaroni instead of potatoes just made sense to me!  Stepping out of my norm again, I purchased Aged English Sharp Cheddar because that's what the book told me to do.  Who knew Kroger carried that kind of stuff?!  I served it as a main dish and it was a delight to the tastebuds!  Even though it took a while, it is a repeater for sure!

The book has other gems I am looking forward to try such as Chili Mac, Smoky Bacon Mac, Breakfast Mac, Mexican Mac, Mac and Blue, Mac-Cakes.  The book also contains recipes to side dishes and desserts.  

So, why did I just go on about this cook book and how yummy the recipes are?  Because I'd like to give you, friends, the opportunity to win one of your very own!  We will be giving away two cookbooks to two lucky readers!  Follow the instructions below on how to enter to win.  Be sure to use the Rafflecopter to let me know you have participated.  Good luck!  Winner will be announced on January 31st!
