    Jennilou5's Note:

    I grew up on this stuff and it is the absolute best mac and cheese you'll ever taste. It's my mom's recipe and I make it exactly the way she does. It's creamy and very cheesy. I've added chunks of smoked sausage or cubes of cheese to it too. I hope you like my mom's mac & cheese as much as I do.
