Mac and cheese: An old favorite gets a new twist

Email News Alerts

Every year at this time, I get such a craving for homemade macaroni and cheese. I pull out my old "Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book" that my mom and dad gave me when I was in high school. I turn to page 140, well worn with sticky spots and a little tear. That's where my favorite macaroni and cheese recipe lurks. It's creamy and rich, full of fat and calories, but oh, so warm and comforting on a cold, damp evening. I make it just once every year when the weather turns cool.
