“My fiance and I love cooking for each other, even though most of the time we end up cooking up a box of mac 'n cheese. I try to change things up a bit by adding things I have on hand. This is one I came up with one night that ended up being very good and I make it over and over on those nights when I don't have a lot of time and I don't want to make just another box of macaroni.”
