The most important thing to me is, it tastes exactly the same as I remember it.....and besides, I always adhered to the old adage, IF IT AIN'T BROKE, DON'T FIX IT. 8) :cheers:

I like to melt Velveeta in the microwave with a little salsa and pour it over broccoli. Gives it a nice zip.

As for instant coffee, I am grateful it exists because coffee pot maintenance sucks and no one else cares to do it for me. I have a water cooler that takes the 5 gallon bottles and we get Culligan delivered. This dispenser also has a hot side which cut out the time microwaing a mug of water. All I have to do is stir in my instant coffee, sugar and half and half and I have a nice cup of coffee with the least amount of effort. Yes, the real deal is arguably better. But I have never craved the real thing so bad that it was worth the time and effort to deal with brewing it and cleaned up the coffee machine afterwards. Maybe a French press would be ok if it is dishwasher safe. But I still like instant for the convenience.

sorry,  I have NO recipes using Velveeta.  laughing

I can give you a decent recipe though.  Used to serve this in my last restaurant.  I scaled it down for home use.
Macaroni and Cheese

Cook one box elbow or twist macaroni

Make a medium white sauce
Make a roux with 3 Tbls butter, 3 Tbls flour.  Cook the roux       until golden brown.
   Add 1 ? cup hot milk.
   Stir until the mixture thickens.
   Add in 4 oz shredded cheddar cheese, stir until melted and
   Add 1/8 cup sherry
         Add black pepper, salt, cayenne pepper,
   Several grates of fresh Nutmeg,  and dry mustard, to taste.

Mix the cheese sauce with the cooked macaroni. 
Butter a casserole dish, and pour in the mac and cheese.  Top with another 4 ounces of grated Cheddar cheese.
Bake at 350? for 20 min, or until the cheese melts on top.  Bake longer if you want a crusty cheese topping.

Remove from oven, serve.
