  2. Sorry Grandpa, can't give you 5 stars. We liked it ok but thought it was dry. It was the easiest mac. & cheese I have ever made. Thanks for the recipe. I'll be looking for more recipes from you in the future.
  3. This is the first mac & cheese recipe I've made where you don't precook the noodles. This was good but I prefer a little more creamy. I thank you for posting a very easy mac & cheese recipe Thanks, Grandpa!
  4. Well Grandpa, you have out-done yourself in my book! I have been making my Grandmas' mac and cheese for years now..But alas! I have retired that. Yours is at the top of my list from now on.( Sorry Grandma. I still love you.) The only thing I did was make it out of cheddar cheese. No Velveta where I live. Thanks gramps..
  5. Grandpa, I Have to say; You sure know your macaroni and cheese. I will be making this again tomorrow and this is the second time this week that the crew has asked for this dish. Creamy, yummy, good to the tummy. Lip smacking good Grandpa, thanks for this winner!


I'm a southern cook living in LA, that's Los Angeles, not Louisiana, unfortunately. Don't know how I developed a love for southern cooking, but since nobody around these parts does it right, I had to learn authentic southern cooking techniques on my own.
