I received a copy of Stirring Up Fun with Food to facilitate this review.

This Mac n Cheese Muffins Recipe is a quirky twist on a favorite kids meal. Homemade macaroni and cheese is so much tastier and more nutritious that the boxed variety. Plus the kids will love that these are made into individual muffin portions. Who am I kidding  . . . the adults will love this too!

It is the last day of school here and I am ready for summer break. Of course, that excitement could be gone in about a month. My daughter and I have lots of fun plans this summer. Getting her more involved in the kitchen is on our list! Stirring Up Fun with Food: Over 115 Simple, Delicious Ways to Be Creative in the Kitchen will be helping us with some fun food ideas.

This cookbook was created by Sarah Michelle Gellar and former Martha Stewart Living editor, Gia Russo. It is full of cute ideas that the kiddos will love. The book is organized by month and has a bright, cheerful feel. The recipes are easy to follow and most are accompanied by large, gorgeous photos. I love that this cookbook is encouraging kids to get busy in the kitchen!

Here are a few recipes that caught my attention: Mac-n-Cheese Muffins, Egg Flowers, Glitter Cake Pops and Mini Turkey Pot Pies.

These Mac-n-Cheese Muffins are delicious! I made a few minor recipe changes, not because it was needed but just for personal taste preferences. I noted those changes within the recipe notes if you are interested.

These individual macaroni and cheese muffins are over-the-top cheesy with a perfect golden crust on top! Just how I like my mac and cheese.
