I had saved this pin/recipe for microwaveable easy mac for a time when I felt lazy and didn't want to cook. I have to be honest and say this happens a lot and I'd rather just grab something and eat right away then prepare or cook anything. So the recipe calls for 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese. I had block cheese and shredded it myself. I think that was my mistake.
I can honestly say it didn't turn out. The cheese just chunked up. I tried adding more milk and more microwave time, but it just didn't get creamy. Does shredded block cheese not melt? Would I have had the same results with store bought shredded cheese?
I had a bowl of it and the texture was just too weird. I ended up tossing the leftovers. I might try this again some day with actual shredded cheese. Or I might as well just find a stove top recipe since I have to cook the noodles anyway!
I saw a pin for fruit pizza a while back and have been wanting to make it. I had some at my cousin's birthday party in July but I wanted one with the kinds of fruit I like. I finally got around to buying all the ingredients for an easy recipe (I didn't do the jelly topping) and remembered the hell I had beating the softened cream cheese the last time, so I smoothed it out with the back of a large spoon. That seemed to do the trick. I even had to add sugar and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and it mixed quite well with the back of the spoon. Hooray! It's pretty delicious. The one thing I hate about making food is that my husband never eats it and half of it ends up going to waste because I can't eat that much.
