ABOUT

ABOUT BIGWIFE'S

thanks.png

Mac and cheese. It’s the ultimate comfort food. 

And it’s exactly what owner Jayme Taxin craved throughout both her pregnancies. Her husband John began affectionately referring to her as Big Wife as her belly would grow. A glowing and happy pregnant woman, she celebrated her weight gain indicative of a healthy pregnancy at every doctor’s appointment.

 

As their children grew, mac and cheese became more than just a comfort food — it became a weekly staple. Known in the Taxin household as “Ole’ Faithful,” mac and cheese was a go-to answer for the question “what’s for dinner?”

 

The Taxin family is proud to offer that comfort to you. These mac and cheese recipes were designed to please and comfort you and your family — from the 'Classic Mac' made with traditional love & care (not to mention a smothering amount of cheddar), to more adventurous offerings like the 'Little Figgy Mac' with Calimyrna figs, ham, and goat cheese. We hope you enjoy!
