Momma’s Creamy Baked Macaroni and Cheese

by Sheryl

The kids favorite – Creamy Baked Macaroni and Cheese. I remember my mom when I was little, she always cooked this for me. I grew up to this dish, it’s the best thing ever! Before I only knew how to eat but now that I’m a mom and have kids of my own, I make sure that they get to experience the best childhood and this dish is one great way for me to ensure that. I think no kids hate this scrumptious dish, as a matter of fact, it’s the kid’s ultimate comfort food! It’s super creamy, cheesy, rich, and satisfying. A simple and no-fuss dish that’s baked to perfection! The kids even the grown-ups will ask for another plate. Definitely a keeper.
