Foodie Fridays: Mac & cheese

Little boy really has a fondness for cheese.  He grabs the cheese bits off our salad when we are out, and loves scraping and eating the cream cheese on his toast.  We joke that its because he's born in the year of the mouse (in fact, the tip of the tail of the mouse, since he came along the day before CNY eve... which made me happy, since I made it home in time for reunion dinner!).  Anyway, since he loves cheese, I've been trying out various cheesy recipes, and am comforted to know that at least the cheese omphs up the protein and fat content in our picky and small eater's diet.

One of those recipes was this macaroni and cheese recipe from Chubby Hubby.  I did have to make some modifications though, and halved everything since it was just for the 3 of us, and replaced the mimolette and gruyere with mozzarella (no time to hunt for those).  I also lowered the salt to just a pinch, and ditched the kirsch, since I was cooking for the lil boy.  It still turned out pretty yummy even with all those changes, and we just had some baked veggies on the side.

Does your little one like cheese?  What are their favourite cheese-based meals? 

Do you have any tried and tested recipes for meals suitable for the whole family?  If you have some easy-to-prepare, healthy recipes, do drop me an email at john(dot)jus(at)gmail(dot)com, with the ingredients, steps, and if possible, a photo of the food!  We'll post the recipes on Fridays, with a link back to your blog if you have one... :)


  1. This looks so delicious! Am gg to try it sometime next week for sure :) Oh btw I tried the oatmeal + apple combo you posted about some time back, and David loves it!!

  2. Dotz: Yay, glad to know David likes the oatmeal... let me know how the mac and cheese goes! :)

  3. Thanks for sharing! I personally LOVE mac and cheese but I've never made it myself before (too lazy) hee. I should try this recipe!

    For the Bubs I often just melt some cheese onto her pasta (with some stock) and that's her cheese sauce.

  4. you have just got me to buy cheeses during my lunch time~! will try the simplify version too, as some of the ingredients are really new to me. cheers!

  5. Corsage: Oh, we do that too! Just decided to try making mac and cheese since the dish is richer compared to just melting the cheese over the pasta... :)

    PC: Wheee, ok... have fun cooking and let me know how it goes!
