I have a confession… I am a mac and cheese fanatic.  I mean really!  What is better than a deliciously baked cheesy creamy baked mac and cheese.  Nothing is better.  It is a comfort food that reminds so many of their childhoods.  Noting is worse than a bland mac and cheese that looks yummy but once bitten into has no flavor.  YUCK! I’m just scrunching up my face by the thought of it…

This recipe for mac and cheese comes from my mother in law.  It is so easy to make and takes absolutely no time.   All you need is cheese, evaporated milk, noodles, more cheese, and one last thing grated onion.  That’s right this adds so much flavor that it will knock your socks off.

So go ahead and try so yummy mac and cheese, you know you want to! 😉
