Creamy Mac and Cheese
I love mac and cheese.  As a matter of fact... who doesn't?  Well, this is not a gourmet recipe.  I have tweaked it a bit but my mom used to take the block of Velveeta and make the most delectable side dish.  I still remember the Thanksgiving she made a huge batch and dropped it on the floor.  I had never seen people ready to eat off of the floor until this happened.
  • 16 oz Block of 2% milk Velveeta
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 2 cups dry Elbow Noodles
  • 1 ts Garlic Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1/2-1 tbsp Hot Sauce
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 tbsp Sour Cream
  1. Boil the noodles according to the box directions.  Reserve 1/4 cup of the water that the noodles cook in and put it to the side.

  3. Heat a saucepan on low.
  4. Add Cheese, Butter, and Milk. Keep the heat on low. It does take a while for the cheese to melt but it prevents it from scorching.
