Pumpkin & Hemp Macaroni & Cheese!

Thank you for stopping by little island studios, please subscribe by email to follow along in family fun!

Oh, can you feel it in the air?  Autumn is coming - cool air, leaves falling, crisp air, pumpkin and hot cider time!  I absolutely love autumn, it is my favorite and my best!  
We love mac and cheese and I am always making new versions of it - making your own is healthy and ever-so satisfying.  This is our most favorite so far - Hemp Mac and Cheese - the cheeses makes it completely decedent and fit for a gourmet.  Try it and see if it isn't your new favorite.   It is the ultimate in macaroni and cheeses!

Hemp seeds and great quality cheeses are the secret and make all the difference!
