Quick Mac and Cheese Recipe

Creamy Mac and Cheese is all that a kid can desire. I don't mind the pre-boxed mac and cheese once in a while, but the flavors are really not that great. A few months into our marriage, I started craving the homemade version of mac a cheese and my coworker shared her mom's recipe. It turned out to be just the way I imagined and it became our home staple. I don't make it often, but when I do, we always enjoy it.

This recipe is pretty simple. If you have all the ingredients at home, you will see that it's just as easy as the pre-boxed version.
