BBQ Mac Recipe: Easy. Quick. Super Yummy.

BBQ Mac is a recipe from back in the day when Mom had to figure out how to feed us on an almost zero budget as she worked her fingers to the bone. It’s easy for everyone and tastes great!

Hey Everyone!  I’m always seeing fancy slightly labor intensive recipes.  They look yummy and are awesome.  However, this is not a fancy labor intensive recipe.  It is a throwback to back in the day when we couldn’t afford many things.

This is fast.  Easy.  Yummy.  Done!

Great for Mommy on those days where we’re just too exhausted to cook!  It’s also super easy to clean up!

Don’t miss our recipe page, we share tons of other recipes, from simple to complicated but only if they are delicious!

Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!
