Cheyanne Harris' Easy, Cheesy, Macaroni And Cheese

Macaroni and Cheese is an essential element of Thanksgiving celebrations in the Harris household. After enduring many years of me pestering her for the recipe, my grandmother finally shared it with me. Fortunately, the recipe’s simplicity makes it a nice side dish for weeknight dinners too! Enjoy!
