Hi Tammy. I made your baked macaroni and cheese yesterday to take to my cousin’s and it was a hit! OMG, it was sooooooo good! That macaroni and cheese disappeared so quick! Everyone kept saying, “Where’s the macaroni and cheese?!!!” Uh, boo it’s gone. LOL! Going forward, this will be the only recipe I use for macaroni and cheese. A big thank you for sharing!

Linda H says:

Nvm I got it !

Michelle Melton says:

It looks good but you should have added the noddles to hot cheese sauce in the pot so all the noddles get coated. By spreading on the cheese the noddles on the bottom are not coated with cheese.

Camilla Barnes says:

Great recipe! I like to make my sauce thinner because I cook it until it is brown and crispy around the edges. I also prefer the large elbows instead of small ones. Yours is the closest to mine and looks so good. I will subscribe because you really know how to cook. Oh by the way I am 66 years old but have an open mind about cooking.

Aaliyah Hicks123 says:

I love it

onehonei2 says:

I had to subscribe because we share the same name. Looks good!

TwinB55 says:

I make mine just about the same way except I mix the cooked elbow noodles with the cheese sauce to assure all mac is coated with the cheese sauce.

Nicole Darling says:

I hope my family don’t get sick I use buttermilk because I didn’t have half and half and panic. I had already started my cheese and watched this video all week Smh shame on me.
