My name is Kayliene. I am a mother and am currently working at finishing up high school. I started this blog as a new years resolution to have a blog that I was dedicated to and posted to on a regular basis. This blog is going to focus on my photography (as you may gather from the title) but also on my sewing projects, other miscellaneous projects and on life in general.

Creamy, Delicious Southwestern Mac and Cheese
Last night for dinner, I made probably the creamiest, cheesiest, most delicious mac and cheese that I have ever made! WARNING: this post contains a lot of yummy, mouth watering pictures that will make you crave some mac and cheese!
Here are the ingredients you will need:
1 Jar Salsa con queso (I used a jar and a bit)
4 cups pasta of your choice
4 tbsp butter
4 tbsp flour
1/2 cup cheddar jack
1/4 cup mozarella
2 cups milk, divided
Step 1: Cook pasta in salted, oiled water until just under cooked. Drain into strainer.
Step 2: In pan that pasta was cooked in, melt butter over medium heat. Add flour and stir well. Pour in half of the milk and reduce. When sauce is thickened, add other cup of milk and cook down until sauce is thick and creamy. Salt and pepper sauce.
Step 3: Pour in jar of Salsa con Queso and stir until it is well blended into the white sauce.
Step 4: Stir pasta and cheddar jack cheese into sauce.
Step 5: Sprinkle Mozzarella cheese on top.
Step 6: Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.
Step 6: Serve up in a bowl and enjoy!
