This Civil War Macaroni and Cheese Copycat recipe really takes me back. Not to the Civil War of course, but back to my childhood. My mother made macaroni and cheese with bread crumbs on top. The addition of that crunch on top is great. This recipe is full of flavor and simplicity. Cooking the pasta in the milk makes it so creamy. Of course, being Italian, I think the use of parmesan cheese alone is great.

This is just a generalized question for the Editors of this site and all of the other All Free Sites. What is up with that DIY Home ad that keeps popping up over the top of your webpages. It pops up over almost every page I go to when I try to exit and it will not go away even when I click the X at the top. It still wants to direct me to that site. I have to actually close my entire browser to remove it.

Is there anyone in the entire world who does not LOVE macaroni and cheese? I think not and our family is certainly no different! However, and with huge apologies to the deprivations of the Civil War, we always add piles of grated cheddar to ours and that is what we did to this recipe as well. I had never added either nutmeg or paprika before and they each bring a really good flavor that really adds depth to the usual mac n cheese.

I have been cooking for over 44 years it started out a hobby and turned into something bigger then I could have ever imagined,I have a wife and 4 children and they began showing up at our house whenever the Honey said Bert is making his famous this or that and everything started displeasing as fast as we could put it on the table.I think I started copying recipes a long time when Ginno giants caugh my attention because I loved the secret sauce was good for and on all my famous ( by famous I mean in my own family ) Istarted then and have been doing it ever since,so in closing the recipes are very good but as any good cook would tell you I need to put my own spin on it.
