Homemade Macaroni & Cheese

I get more positive feedback about my Homemade Macaroni & Cheese recipe perhaps more than any other. Here’s a video showing how easy it is. You may never go back to Kraft again!

Here are the ingredient measurements:

  • 7 cups uncooked elbow noodles
  • 1 stick margarine
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

My mom and dad have a lot of plans for more videos like this one. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel to be informed of the new movies that get uploaded.

    Thank you for the recipe. I’m going to try this right away. I’m hoping to be able to get your cookbooks soon. Not in the budget right now, but soon, I hope.

    I cannot view the video link. Is it you, or is it me? :) ‘Sure would love some directions for the mac’n’cheese…
    Happy 2011!

      Try again. Sometimes it just has too many people viewing it at once.

        i have read the comments following the macaroni and cheese recipe that it would be cheaper to buy store boxed. i know in this hard recession time it may seem cheaper, but in the long run for health sake, it is better to eat as unprocessed as you possibly can. my husband has just completed his 5th year of being cancer-free after losing a kidney to cancer.we praise GOD and HIS great love everyday, for bringing forth the knowledge of it, and the healing.

    can you use butter instead?

    • Wendy Jeub

      If you watch the video long enough you will see Cynthia’s comment about butter. LOL!!

      • Laurie

        Cynthia sounds like my Shelby when she commented on the end. Hilarious, she also sounds like her Momma who loves to put love in the kitchen. I think I will have my two girls make this tomorrow.

    This is a favorite around here – we do use butter. It is so easy and REALLY good!!

    Thanks for this video! I made the recipe from your cookbook a few days ago, but was a little unsure about the steps of making the cheese sauce and layering in the cheese. I ended up mixing everything together and then just dumping it in the noodles. This video cleared it right up! Thanks! I also snuck in some frozen veggies and left-over ham.

    I really like your cooking videos because you get right to the point and don’t waste time with a lot of unnecessary talking. I’m a busy mom and so many You-tube videos take so LONG getting to it that I end up quitting before the recipe is even started. I never have that problem with your videos!

    • Wendy Jeub

      Thank you so much!! It makes the hard work worth it!

    • Kristi

      Ditto the last paragraph!

  • Richelle

    I love it…. I have the cookbook and half the recipe and it is wonderful. OK Wendy how is it that your house is so quiet during the filming? I have two and my house is loud. LOL Great job Cynthia:)

    • Wendy Jeub

      LOL Richelle! We yell “Quiet on the set!” of course” Hee hee Umm really you can hear plenty. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Lori

    Laughing at the “I’m sorry..just use butter!!” I would have sub’d butter for margarine anyway, but that cracked me up! ThanksCynthia.

    I’m going to try the recipe as soon as I get my next batch of cheddar.

  • Trav

    You’re awesome.

  • Kristi

    Love the “extras” at the end of your videos.

  • sandra

    yum,looks good…I’m hungry now! I’ve never understood why some ppl use the boxed mixes when it’s so easy to make it homemade,and you can personalize it the way you want.

  • Bea

    O.k. so granted I have not bought mac and cheese in a box in forever (since I make it from scratch now) but looking at the ingredients wouldn’t it be cheaper to buy the box kind? I know that the version of mac and cheese I make would definitely be more expensive than the box stuff but since the Jeub’s save all they can wouldn’t it be cheaper to use the box stuff regularly and save this for a special occasion? Thoughts?

    • Raquelle

      I don’t know about you, but I think boxed macaroni and cheese is not at all good. In terms of an inexpensive way to make homemade macaroni and cheese, this one is as frugal as you can get. Sometimes it’s worth paying just a little more to make something delicious from scratch.

      I had the same thought initially Bea, but I am trying to get away from the additives in prepackaged foods. It does cost more, but it is so much better for your body. This is one of those things that would become a special treat every now and then instead of the usual once a week side dish.

  • Jessica

    Ooh, I’m going to try this with some chopped broccoli mixed in! Looks delish.

    The entire Pederson clan thanks you for taking the time to make this video! We could not figure out how to melt the cheese. We will have to try again and report on our success.

  • Jessica

    I’m making this tonight! In fact I’m boiling the noodles right now. :)
