Oven-baked Mac and cheese

Hey gang, welcome to your Kids in the Kitchen Class on 20th June. We are making a delicious dish that was requested by one of our fabulous members.

“Oven Baked Mac and Cheese” We are sneaking in a few veggies to by adding the broccoli and cauliflower. Sure give them a try and don’t worry if you don’t like them you can always pick them out (shhhh I wont tell any one).

We are going to have great fun during class, learning lots of new skills like making a homemade cheese sauce and preparing the cauliflower and broccoli.

See you on Tuesday , Jolene and Lils x…
