Freaktastic Mac & Cheese (named by the kids)

Lori Marie


I am a mother of 3 and married to a farmer...we use products off our farm to cook with. I have been collecting old time recipes for years - trying to teach my kids how it was in the "olden days." This is a family favorite of ours! I believe the time at the dinner table is very important and something that has been lost this day in age. Enjoy!!
