"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Nellie was my manicurist for many years in Atlanta. We lost her to cancer over 6 years ago. Nellie was a black lady originally from Detroit and this was her family recipe. I wa so impressed with it after making it that when I saw a contest for $500 in the Atlanta Journal & Constitution I asked her if I could enter it and would give her the money if she won. THis recipe won the $500 for Mac & Cheese!!

WARNING, please note the amount of cheese etc. Anyone with high cholesterol should avoid or have a phone right next to the dinner table to call 911 if necessary!!!!!!
