Magnolia Mac and Cheese

Monday, September 24, 2018
I got the Magnolia cookbook b/c one of my friends had it at her house and I flipped through it and was so impressed by how easy the recipes were, and it turns out (so far), everything I have tried has been A)  Easy, but more importantly B)  Delicious.  The nutmeg in these macaroni really made the flavor pop.  Now....back to my research!
