Mac and Cheese.
Two simple words and yet so many different ways to prepare this delicious recipe. For years I have been making one recipe that I named Olivia's Mac and Cheese because she loves it so much and I enjoy making my kids happy. But recently I've started making another recipe for mac and cheese. This one bakes in the oven while my other recipe, named after my daughter, is a stove top recipe. Both are easy and creamy and delicious and the perfect side dish or perfect as the main course.
Ready for the oven.
Ready to serve.
Delicious and easy.

- 3 cups (about 12 oz.) medium cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Now add the milk and stir constantly until boiling.
Remove from heat and stir in TWO cups of cheese.
Reduce heat to low and continue to stir until everything is combined.
