Mac & Cheese great comfort food, don't feel bad my kids grew up on box stuff too, but not the kind with the creamy cheese the kind with the powder cheese, LOL.

When I was pregnant with LM, I was always craving MacNCheese... the boxed stuff with the powder... good thing it is easy to make, I was so dang tired from growing a baby! : )

Yours looks super yummy! I'll have to try the "from scratch" one of these days... :)

My son thinks the only good kind of Mac n cheese is the boxed kind! Won't even try the other kind.

Yummm! We are huge Georgia Bulldog fans in this house! and we love "football" food! I make a spinach artichoke hot dip that is soooo wonderful and sooo bad for you! Love it!

GO FAVRE!!!! Ur.. um.. I mean VIKINGS!!!

I'm going to try this recipe. I make it from scratch on occasion - but with just butter, milk and valveeta (the universal food). And I just do it on the stove top.. quick and easy baby! But I know all your Mom's recipes rock - so I'm gonna give it a whirl. My family will love me!
