This was one of my most fun lessons! I did a cooking lesson with the super talented student, Frankie Ann. We made homemade macaroni & cheese. I'm adding it my recommended recipes. We used the recipe from the Joy of Cooking cookbook. I'm posting the one from allrecipes.com. It's a super easy recipe that any high school student (maybe even middle school...) can make! It works kitchen and cooking skills with using the stovetop, measuring, shredding cheese, following a recipe, scooping and using the oven.
Here's the recipe (and the link): http://allrecipes.com/recipe/homemade-mac-and-cheese/. It's not exactly the most low fat recipe but students love a little comfort food like mac 'n cheese. You can replace some of the ingredients with low fat subs. I'm an advocate of healthy eating but even I couldn't resist homemade mac 'n cheese. Super yummy lunch with Frankie Ann after!
