Holy Macaroni!

As Cream City Casseroles grows, I'm making larger and larger quantities of food each week.

I recently made the largest amount of Mac N Cheese to date. On top of the week's regular orders, I also made Mac N Cheese for our local Ronald McDonald House, a home away from home for families with children receiving care at area hospitals. 

Nearly 7 gallons of Mac N Cheese!

Mac N Cheese ... plain or with The Works (bacon, Roma tomatoes, broccoli florets)
The casseroles were packaged and delivered to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) where volunteers heated and served dinner.


Dinner featured Cream City Casseroles' Mac N Cheese, Don't-Forget-the-Salad Salad and Mom's Fudge Brownies. Thanks, Great Clips, for sponsoring dinner!

Sam Barrington of the Green Bay Packers visited with families and enjoyed some Mac N Cheese.

It was exciting cooking for the Ronald McDonald House and I hope to do it again. What an amazing organization! 

The RMHC staff feel it's important to let the families focus on their sick child, not worrying about making meals. That's why they provide free breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for up to 70 guest families.

Every. Single. Day.

Feeding guest families 365 days a year is quite a challenge so RMHC relies on volunteer groups and corporate sponsors to help prepare and pay for meals.

If you'd like to help feed RMHC's families, visit rmhcmilwaukee.org > How to Help > Family Meal Programs for more info.

Cream City Casseroles is pleased to offer a 25% dinner sponsor discount on meals for Ronald McDonald House Eastern Wisconsin. Contact me if you'd like to sponsor a RMHC dinner.

Knock, knock ... Dinner's delivered!

When I first launched Cream City Casseroles, I only delivered to customers at their daycare centers and workplaces. My main worry was what to do if a customer wasn't home.

We're delivering food here, people!

But then, a customer had a brilliant suggestion:

"What if I left a cooler on my doorstep? You could put my food in there."

Boom. Genius.

You could've heard my forehead slap across town. Why didn't I think of that?

Well, let me tell you, home delivery has TOTALLY taken off. It's the most popular delivery method BY FAR. And it's so simple.

Here's how home delivery works:

1) You leave out a large cooler with ice pack.
2) I put your order in the cooler.
3) I email you that your dinner was delivered.
4) You come home and heat your dinner in the oven.
5) You eat dinner and FREAKING LOVE IT.
6) You immediately order dinner for next week.
7) You reward yourself with a bubble bath ... using the fancy soap.

Just 7 teeny-tiny steps. How easy is that?

Surviving twins

I recently delivered Cream City Casseroles meals to two families with twins.

One was a gift delivery to welcome two precious little babies into the world. As the new dad gratefully accepted the big bag of oven-ready meals, he was visibly moved by his friends' outpouring of love and support.  
We talked for a few minutes about adjusting to life with newborns, and how life with twins is both an incredible blessing and a huge challenge.
"It gets easier," I assured him. "I know. My twins are now teenagers." 
Relief washed over his face.
"This is hard," he admitted. "Really, hard."
Looking back, I barely remember those first few weeks after my girls were born -- they're just a blur. But I do remember being blissfully happy and scared out of my mind, simultaneously.  

A few weeks ago, I got an email from a mom with toddler twins. She travels a lot for work and inquired about ordering meals to stock the fridge for when she's out of town. A…

Dish Delish: Sweet Summer Bratwurst Casserole

I'm a recipe-aholic. I love perusing cookbooks and foodie websites, looking for new and yummy dishes. Wanting to offer some lighter summer options for the upcoming summer months, I've been looking for casserole recipes that can be prepared in the oven, crock pot or grill. 
Tall order, I know, but it can be done. Especially when brats and sauerkraut are involved.

I came across a recipe that is really good, but didn't make the cut for my summer menu. I liked it a lot, but it was too sweet for my chief taste-tester's palate. (My husband.) Still, I thought it was nice for a change and worth sharing.
