Mac and cheese – The epitome of comfort food!
I’ve been making this dish for so long that it never occurred to me that it would be worth sharing. I thought it was just an everyday dish until I had a friend over for a casual dinner with the kids and she raved about it and insisted I include it on this site.
I just love how easy this recipe is. You’d think something so easy couldn’t end up so rich and flavorful! Once you try this, you won’t buy a box mix again!
I have to admit, it is delicious. I sometimes make it for a quick lunch for my son who is crazy about it. It couldn’t be simpler and it really is comfort food at it’s best!
I’m sorry for the short post, but my son’s birthday is this week and the festivities have begun!
