My gift to you... Happy Easter :)

Macaroni & Cheese

- 16 oz Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, cut into small cubes
- 16 oz Mild Cheddar Cheese, cut into small cubes
- 16 oz Mozzarella Cheese, cut into small cubes
- Milk
- 1 stick of butter
- 3 large eggs
- Salt & pepper
- 16 oz of elbow macaroni

- Bring water to a boil for macaroni noodles, once water is boiling add noodles, 2 T of butter, and salt. Cook until the noodles are almost al dente, and drain.
- Add the ingredients in this order to the noodles. You will need to have a continuous motion of stirring while mixing everything together. Try and be quick so the noodles are still warm when you place in baking dish.
- 3 eggs, mix well
- 6 T butter
- Gradually add the cheese. While adding the cheese the mac will beco
me hard to stir, add milk in small amounts to help with stirring. Do this until all the cheese cubes is incorporated.
- Place into a baking dish, no need to butter the dish... there is plenty in it already :)
- Bake 45-60 min at 350 degrees until bubbly & the top starts to brown.

Cookies 'N Creme cupcakes

A few weeks ago I hosted a dinner party for my brother and his Collegiate golf team. I knew the boys needed a dessert but what... I came up with this creation by putting about a half bag of oreos in my food processor & mixing that up with vanilla buttercream. They were an absolute hit b/c there were none left... 24 cupcakes and 5 boys.
