This recipe goes back a long way, it was my neighbor Cookie's(Kathleen) favorite macaroni & Cheese recipe. She loved it so much, I named it after her in my cookbook. She was my neighbor for almost 20 years, and suddenly passed away last year. Each time I make this recipe, I am reminded of her and the love, bond and friendship that we shared for all those years. Each time I made this I always had to share with her. Here is to you Cookie, thanks for the wonderful memories that we shared together. This recipe & so many others always remind me of you. You are greatly missed but not forgotten.
