Sweet Potato Cheddar Mac N’ Cheese


Mac n cheese

This Mac N’ Cheese recipe is a miracle recipe. Not only did my pickiest eater eat an entire bowl of this, but I was able to enjoy a bowl myself.  A lot of times us parents can’t always enjoy the same food as our kids due to their picky-ness, and our desire to not eat baby food.

This is an easy, make-at-home mac n’ cheese that your whole family will love, all the while adding a boost of nutritional value with a secret pureed veggie in the sauce.
