29 Mac and Cheeses from The Food in my Beard


5 Years ago today, The Food in my Beard was born. It seems like it all went by so fast, but at the same time, I can't really remember a time when I wasn't blogging.  So that's reason I have been doing the roundups all week. Honestly I can't think of a better way to celebrate than with mac and cheese. As always, I just want to say a big thanks! You guys are why I do this. Thanks for sticking around all these years, and I promise to make this one the best ever.

I've been loving your posts all week! I'm a bit of a n00b around these parts, but I'm here to stay. I'm definitely going to make a Mac & Cheese for Game Day... now you've made my job of choosing one that much harder. Cheers to you, and congrats on your 5 years!!

I finally made the best cheese sauce yet for my recent mac and cheese. I've had issues with it becoming gritty, but defeated the grittiness with temperature control.

Congrats on 5 years! I first came here for the epic timpano and stayed for the variations of mac and cheese.

I'm gonna make the spinach artichoke mac soon.

Happy blog birthday! You already know that it's my favorite recipe so I just want to thank you again for introducing me and my friends to pork belly mac and cheese :)

Happy anniversary. You have done a lot of hard work to keep this up. Congratulations.

Happy 5! You're a culinary genius.

Happy 5th birthday, TFIMB. Seriously, if it weren't for you, I wouldn't be able to live on my own and eat well cooking for myself and friends. Thanks. Here's to many more years of blogging and making awesome recipes, especially more Mac and Cheeses.

Happy blog birthday! These all look so good. I made a roasted cauliflower, spinach, and bacon mac and cheese for dinner last night.

Congrats on 5 years, Dan! Your creativity never ceases to amaze me. And make me hungry. Cheers to your blogiversary!
