Mac and Cheese With a Kick

Happy Thursday guys! I am so excited to share todays post! Something to know about me is I love Mac and Cheese! Because of that I have tried multiple recipes, substitutions, and ideas on improving and creating the best Mac and Cheese I could make. This recipe is hands down my favorite. It is comforting, decadent, creamy, and has a subtle kick to it.

Mac and Cheese with a Kick


1/2 cup of Noodles (I used Barilla Gluten Free Elbows)

1/4 cup of Half and Half

A handful of Colby Jack Cheese (or whatever cheese you like)

1 Teaspoon of French’s Dijon Mustard

Pinch of each spice

  • Salt/ Pepper
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Paprika
  • Tumeric



1.Cook noodles in salt water till at desired hardness. Then drain them and set aside.


2. In the same pan you cooked the noodles in, mix all ingredients (except for noodles) over low heat. Stir until cheese is melted, and it is a creamy, slightly thick consistency. (Add more milk for a thinner sauce)


3. Combine noodles to the sauce and mix together.



4.Pour in a bowl and enjoy!!



That’s it guys! This is an easy lunch or dinner, that takes less than 20 minutes to make. It is perfect for fall time and rainy days! Let me know if you try it and what you think!

What is your favorite rainy day food?
