Personal Notes:
I had always thought that the best macaroni and cheese came from the blue Kraft Macaroni & Cheese box. While that is good, this is the macaroni and cheese the family loves.

It is so nice to take the steaming casserole from the oven on a cold winter night and watch as everyone digs in. I usually dress mine with a bit of ketchup but the purists in the family never needed anything to make this one of the their favorites.
