Mac-N-Cheese

Welcome to our Mac-n-Cheese Recipes page.  Yes, mac-n-cheese gets its own tab.  We love mac-n-cheese especially our grandchildren.  Before our three little bundles of joy arrived and we happily dived head first into being hands-on grandparents, Walt and I used to spend our New Year’s Eve quietly at home making tasty little dishes like shrimp scampi with a nice white wine.  Once the grandbabies arrived and started spending New Year’s Eve with Papa and Grandma we rose from shrimp scampi and started serving the ever popular, always in demand, mac-n-cheese.

As always, this page is a work in progress.  Please check back from time to time to see what new recipes we’ve added.
