This is a result of experimentation from trying to find a macaroni and cheese recipe that appeals to kids but also has enough flavor and difference to be appetizing to adult tastes. This one has it in my book. I hope that all of you enjoy it if you like macaroni and cheese.

  3. Slowly add the milk stirring all the time and allow to thicken.
