Mac & Cheese Recipe

Smokey Mac & Cheese

Many families does not know at 5 p.m. what they are going to have for Dinner that night. Some nights they only have thirty minutes to put a meal on the table before going out again for various activities.  When rushing to the grocery store after work and asking yourself: 'What's for Dinner' look for the beautiful Knorr Canada display to get inspired by their quick, delicious and easy recipes and pick your ingredients for your meal.

We had the chance to have the visit of Sandi Richard, expert in meal-planning, that came and cooked with us in La Cuisine d'Hélène. We made a Chicken with Wine and Cream Sauce that my son Mathieu prepared for us under the close supervision of Sandi. His friend Andrew came and was the sous-chef that day. We had fun preparing that meal with Sandi using Knorr products and the final dish was so yummy that it will be a repeater in our home. Next week I will post the recipe of the final with pictures of Sandi with us in La Cuisine d'Hélène.

If you prefer to plan your meal in advance you can browse online for recipes of Knorr Canada What's for Dinner. There is a recipe for everyone in the family. What I like about the recipes is that they are simple, use few ingredients and kids can help in the kitchen. Many recipes can be prepared during the w-end and are suitable for the freezer. You can also prepare all the ingredients the day before and when your teenager comes back from school, everything is ready to start cooking Dinner so that you can all have a meal together when you come back from work.
