What we ate: baked mac&cheese

I decided it was high time for Ryan and I to try to cook something together. I needed to know if we could work together in the kitchen, and see if I could get away with taking pictures of him because, “it’s for my blog!” We compromised and you’ll see his hands in about half the pictures, ahaha.

We made baked mac&cheese, his recipe (that he thought up while we were at the grocery store).


– 1 box pasta
– 1 jar Newman’s Own mild cheese sauce
– shredded cheese
– bread crumbs
– bread (for a side!)


Cook that pasta. Don’t cook it all the way though because you’re going to stick it in the oven and it will cook more!!

While the pasta is cooking, get your bread crumbs ready. We didn’t have any so we crushed up some croutons instead.

This was basically my only job so I took it very seriously.

Drain the pasta and mix it with the entire container of cheese. At this point you might be thinking to yourself, “Why continue? This is delicious just the way it is! A slight spice, the occasional pepper chunk. Mm, mm good.” You can stop now if you want, but you’ll be wasting all those croutons.

Layer it in a dish with the crouton crumbs.

And top with shredded cheese!

We were going to bake it at 375 for a while, but then we realized it might get dried out.

So we set it to broil to crisp up the top.

Looks good, right?

Serve with those rolls I listed in the original ingredients. Because what could go better with carbs than more carbs!

We accidently dried the cheese out trying to bake it, but it still turned out pretty amazing. And we had fun!
