Baked Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

Since I’ve learned to cook, we’ve been having significantly less macaroni and cheese.  Kraft mac & cheese has lost its appeal.  This is a completely positive change… however… I must admit I do miss the bit of comfort that a big ol’ bowl of macaroni and cheese brings.

Paul’s sister gave us a recipe for homemade macaroni and cheese that somehow blends that line between comfort food and adult dinner fare – and it’s not much more difficult than opening that blue box!
