I miss my dear Grandma's famous macaroni & cheese and aside from never even remotely approaching her greatness, the processed cheese isn't that good for me anyway.
(You can read more about my last attempt here: Dear Grandma.)
My sweet girls are suckers for mac & cheese, yet I cringe a little every time I set a runny mess of pre-packaged orange noodles on the table.
I had a pretty good go at things the other night with a cheddar cheese sauce, but it still needs some work. The girlies gobbled it up and that's always a good sign! Almost anything homemade is going to be cheaper and healthier and that's something I can feel good about all around.
My friend, Lori, (who is a superbly fabulous cook) once posted her cheese sauce recipe on her blog (made from real cheese!). I can hardly wait to try it as it looks amazing. Lori knows her way around a kitchen so I know it must be good. As a bonus, she also includes her Alfredo sauce recipe. Go here to check it out: Cheddar Cheese Sauce.
Lori's blog, 4newtons, has some other really great recipes featuring whole foods. Her spinach dip is pretty amazing, too.
