Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Bacon mac and cheese takes the flavors of a classic sandwich and a favorite comfort food and combines them in this hearty dish.

I tried this recipe with only 2 tablespoons of parsley at the end (because parsley is a bold seasoning)it turned out delicious!
very delicious. perfect side dish for an alternative. :)
Thank God for cooking knowledge . . I had everything laid out and ready to go - no butter - -I just used all olive oil. I fried some onions with the bacon - and added green pepper also. I added some more flour to thicken. (I doubled the recipe) I added a cup of homemade spicy/hot sauce. I baked it for 30 minutes - adding homemade bread crumbs - IT WAS THE BOMB! Thanks Mom, for the cooking lessons 40 years ago!
My daughter made this for Easter and it is by far my favorite!!!
Love mac and cheese but was really disappointed with this one. I really wanted to like it but it seems like it took too many ingredients and too much time for what taste I got out of it. Others said it was okay but I didn't even like it at all.
I made this recipe and my husband and sons loved it. I used montery jack cheese instead of american and was very good.
This recipe, or a slight variation of it ( I didn't use red pepper, nutmeg, flour, or American cheese) is one I have been making since I was a child. My Garnddaddy made it for me when I was 5, and I have had it all my life, I even entered my version of it into a contest a couple years ago, (perhaps it was last year I can't exactly recall when). I am very surprised to now find a variation of it on here. (kinda makes me wonder if this was taken from the contest and altered slightly, so no credit was given... things that make you go hmmm).
I love homemade mac-n-cheese and will say that this twist on it was fantastic. I even added some of my own flair to it. I added minced garlic with the butter and added chopped onion with the tomatoes. Instead of serving it right after combining the pasta and sauce, I put it into a casserole dish and sprinkled bread crumbs and extra cheese onto it. Then I baked it in the oven at 300 degrees for approximatly 30 minutes.Delicious! I would recommend that everyone try this recipe!

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
