Courtesy of FoodTV - Alton Brown's Macaroni and Cheese
Today was my sweetheart's birthday. I won't say how old. He is a kid at heart and that is really all that matters. He keeps me smiling and laughing. He wanted strawberry shortcake for his birthday cake and I whipped that up this morning. My Mom and Dad joined us this evening to share in the birthday wishes. I made a special dinner last night, something terribly gourmet . . . shake 'n bake chicken and baked macaroni. Yup, we live quite a life here! He loves shake 'n bake. And baked macaroni is another favorite. I've made one way for all of my life. But I got a bit curious several months ago and found this recipe from Alton Brown of Food TV http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/baked-macaroni-and-cheese-recipe/index.html. It is not difficult to make (watch the video!) and it's really good. The secret is the cheese.
