Creamy Broccoli Mac and Cheese

The EASIEST and CREAMIEST mac and cheese made in less than 30 min! Comfort food perfection! And it is the perfect way to sneak in those greens!

Greetings from Paris.

We hopped on a flight from Indianapolis to JFK to Paris, except our luggage didn’t quite follow us all the way to France.

So we’re drowning our sorrows in croissant after croissant after croissant.

It really seems to be helping.

But in the meantime, for those of you getting ready for those New Year’s resolutions, I have my favorite mac and cheese recipe to share today.

Now when I say resolutions, I’ll be eating kale and kale starting January 1st.

So for these last 3 days, let’s indulge and eat our hearts out with the creamiest mac and cheese ever.

I also did you guys a favor and added broccoli.

The broccoli is good for you – promise.
