Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

This recipe is to die for! I have always wanted to make home made macaroni and cheese. Since David's family is from the south I wanted to make something authentic. I started looking online for a recipe and realized that there are so many ways to make macaroni and cheese, from stove top, oven to crockpot! I found this recipe on the Food Network and it is by Paula Dean. I knew that if it was by Paula Dean it must be good and boy was I right! David loved it as well. We had some people come over after bible study just to try it and they polished it all off!

I will have to look into this one. I made Rachael Ray's Mac and Cheese with a few modifications and that came out good too. It looks so creamy.
