  • avoid packaged stuff when you can, it seems inexpensive but there's usually a lot of extra crap in there, and homemade contains more love :)

  • Just noodles, cheese, milk, taco seasoning and beef for Cheesy Mac. It helps to melt the chees in milk before incorporating it with the noodles. I season the beef not the noodles.

  • Scratch, I can say after 25 years of cooking that it's never been so bad that I felt I had to make Hamburger helper

  • I don't even look at HH, much less buy it. I make homemade versions all the time, and even DH is getting good at multiple varieties.
