Easy Macaroni and Cheese #TasteCreations

Welcome to the May edition of Taste Creations!  Taste Creations is a small, monthly blog hop where we share with you some yummy recipes based on a theme. This month we are featuring comfort food classics because, during this time of unrest, we all could use a food that makes us feel warm and good inside!

This month I made Easy Macaroni and Cheese, the kind where you dump it all together and bake in the oven.  Yep, it is that easy!  No pre-cooking the noodles, just dump the whole thing in a 9 by 13 pan and bake! Who needs to spend time cooking noodles when the oven can do the work?  Not me! I have lots of things I would rather do, like read, or cook or bake, or walk, or garden....

We have some other wonderful recipes for you this month. Check out these:

From Lauren of Mom Home Guide we have Homemade Pizza. This looks amazing and her family loves it!

From Nikki of Tikkido we have Homemade Spaetzle. Nikki ordered a special spoon for making this dish and she loves it!

From Rosemary of An Italian in My Kitchen we have Broccoli Cheese Bake.  This is one of her family's personal favorites!

Don't these cheesy goodies look cozy and warm?  Even on a cool spring day, these dishes will be sure to please everyone!
