Crockpot Lasagna

I learned how to make lasagna during high school, it was actually my sophomore year in Mrs. Wagner’s culinary class. Her class was the very first time I was taught in a culinary setting and it made my desire to learn and love cooking even greater. Although it was only for one school year with her, Mrs. Wagner was a marvelous mentor…patient, caring and was great in using different tools to engage with students in preparing and cooking delicious food.
Since high school…many moons ago, I think I’ve only made lasagna only a handful of times and each time I never strayed away from the one ingredient she showed us that was surprising but made a difference…cottage cheese. This of course isn’t the exact recipe because her’s was the classic bake in the oven lasagna, but I kept most of the ingredients and incorporated it into making a crock-pot lasagna!
This crock-pot recipe is a perfect and easy weekend dinner…set it up early, run your errands then come home to a delicious meal.

Thank you Mrs. Wagner 😊

Stove Top Velveeta Mac & Cheese

Guys this recipe is a wonderful, velvety and cheesy mac and cheese! It is easy and fast to make and can be featured as a main dish…not just a side dish. I love macaroni and cheese with any cheese sauce, any pasta, stove top or baked, it’s all good! I usually prefer the Velveeta cheese sauce used in shells and cheese but I figured if I combine both the elbow pasta and the Velveeta cheese I could have the best stove top mac and cheese. Now, my son can be a very picky eater and a long with applesauce and mashed potatoes, mac and cheese is in his top 3 foods that he WILL NOT EAT. Luckily, after he had the first bite of this Velveeta mac and cheese he gave me a thumbs up and said it was good! So now I know I did something right this time around.
