When it starts getting chilly, we begin to hibernate. Nobody wants to go outside and trek through the icy snow and cold winds. Class attendance is weak and morale is even weaker. It seems as if it should be a movie day every day.

1. Mac and Cheese

Trust me, this isn’t any old mac and cheese. Although I love Kraft mac and cheese as much as the next person (especially the SpongeBob shaped ones!), sometimes I want to spice it up a bit. This mac and cheese adds parmesan and cheddar cheese for extra cheesy goodness. Plus, they add a secret ingredient…mustard! If you’re a cheese lover, you need to check out this recipe.
