1/2 Photos of Maclaren's Imperial Cheese and Macaroni
Lori Mama's Note:
I purchased some Maclaren's Imperial Cheese at Costco, which was a super deal, not really knowing what to do with it. I searched the Kraft site for some recipes, but they didn't really have much I wanted to try that was for everyday use. I set out to try my hand at something myself and I hope you like it. My husband, who loves mac 'n cheese, really did.
