A quick white sauce takes the place of canned soup in this hearty casserole from the Chicken Farmers of Canada's free digital cookbook

There's nothing like making classic dishes from scratch, especially when the kids can get involved in the kitchen, like our own momstown Junior Chefs! We love this classic mac and cheese in a baked casserole for a quick dinner and left overs for school lunches! Comfort food at it's best!

This is filled with lean ground chicken, veggies and a spinach ricotta cheese mixture.

What's the ultimate comfort food? I would say mac and cheese! It's a great side dish or main (with some raw veggies) and left overs make the perfect lunch box meal!

I just got a sexy new slow cooker. Yes, I said sexy. Don't you love how easy it is to make a delicious and healthy meal with a slow cooker? I couldn't believe when some of my friends said they didn't have one!
