Good old fashioned baked mac and cheese, whats not to like? Not difficult to make and a sure fire pleaser. I had to have a very small serving because of the fat/calorie load but DH didn't cut back and loved every bite I boosted my serving with a green salad and steamed broccoli. Made for Pic A Chef, Spring 2013.
