Macaroni and Cheese!

One of my favorite things on earth! And not the instant kind — that’s for my kids… LOL

No, I love macaroni and cheese. As I have noted before, I have been known to pick a restaurant based on the availability of cheesy dishes! The goal of holiday meals is to find good stuff to go with the mac N cheese.

My mother made great macaroni and cheese — without a recipe. I could never quite imitate her dish — and I tried! So, I found a couple of recipes that may not have been just like hers but were exceptional! My usual go-to recipe has FOUR kinds of cheese and is divine! But it takes time…grating and grating and grating 4 kinds of cheese…

If you don’t have that kind of time, it’s possible to make good mac N cheese in the slow cooker. Really! This one is a great recipe to try. It’s quick and easy and cheesy, cheesy, cheesy!

Enjoy!
