Macaroni and Cheese

Every year on his birthday, Rob asks for macaroni and cheese, which is his favorite dish.

I have to confess that it took me about three years to master this seemingly easy delicious side dish to meet Rob's taste, but I finally did when I found this recipe in one of my many Southern Living cookbooks. I knew the recipe was meant for me because of the few ingredients and instructions.

I tweaked the original recipe to add some extra flavor. Give it a shot, and let me know if you like it!

Enjoy!!
