    Macaroni & Cheese Recipe with a twist

    Here’s a great Macaroni & Cheese recipe adapted from the Vitamix Whole Foods Cookbook. It’s amazing when you have the right kitchen tools how pleasurable cooking can be. Vitamix makes MidLife simpler. I followed the original recipe with a few exceptions. Instead of making and seasoning the bread crumbs, I used Italian Seasoned Panko bread crumbs mixed with tablespoon of butter. Quick, easy and packed with flavor. I also added a little extra cheese. The cheese sauce looked a little […]
