So if you're a non-chef-y like me you have to master one dish really well so it can be your go-to potluck dish lol. Well ladies & gents here's another go-to to recipe to add to your arsenal!
I mean personally, I know no event that mac and cheese is not appropriate for. I'm talking BBQ's, weddings, baby showers, funerals, picnics, christmas, you name it and it's ok for mac and cheese to be there. So for all my foodies out there that don't know how to make this cheesy goodness or if you're looking for an amazing new recipe this episode is for you!
