    Luby Luby Luby's Note:

    I was looking for another type of macaroni and cheese dish and came across this one from Emeril Lagasse. I haven't made it yet but plan on trying it out on my crew at Thanksgiving. What's not to like about Cream and Cheese - the epitome of comfort food.

      I had a craving for Mac & Cheese so I decided to give this one a try. Very good and although I did not add the essence as in the directions, this came out wonderful. Thank you. :)
