Mom’s Recipes – Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

I made homemade macaroni and cheese for Thanksgiving for my family – the first time. It was a simple recipe (which I will share below) but it was the kind that was best made a day ahead of time so that things had time to congeal and solidify. Tasted 100% better the following day as leftovers!

This is my mom’s recipe for homemade Macaroni and Cheese that I later made for my family. I thought there was going to be a fist fight between the boys over who would get the last bit left! This is a winner!
