    My son’s favorite food is mac & cheese. I found a recipe for mac & cheese & chicken muffins that I modified to make into JUST mac & cheese. Very simple, very delicious, and according to my son “even better than Applebees!” Here it is – 8 oz macaroni cooked and drained, 1 T butter melted, whisk in 1 T flour and a 1 t. salt. Cook 1 min. Whisk in 1.5 cups of whole milk, bring to boil and simmer 3 minutes. Turn off heat and mix in 1 cup of shredded or cubed white cheddar and .25 cup of shredded parm. I like to add steamed broccoli but it’s perfect without it too.

    We love to have Aunt Fanny's Squash Casserole on Easter and make it for potlucks. I just tried it out one day, and now it is a common request…sooo good!

    My mother’s homemade baked macaroni and cheese topped with whole plum tomatoes, which I loved growing up and now is a family favorite.

    My mom's homemade lasagna. To this day, I am constantly trying to make it like her but I never get it quite right. It is delicious but missing her love. She still makes it for me when I visit her. She always make it for me for my birthday when I was a kid because it was my fav food. It still is my fav food. LOL Angie 14earth at gmail dot com

    My favorite dish is my sausage casserole with egg noodles. I add milk, eggs, cheese and a little yogurt to make it. It has been passed down to me by my mom whose mom used to make it.Laurie Emersonlauraemerson17 at yahoo dot com
