Baked Macaroni and Cheese recipe

Recently, I was sent a cornucopia of incredible Paula Deen products from Sears. I have been wanting a new set of dishes since I started taking pictures of my food. All the food books I have been reading talk about how blue shows up really nice against most dishes, so I just fell in love with the 16 pc Spring Prelude dinnerware set. It reminded me of a warm family setting, the kind where every one comes over for dinner and you cook all of your grandma’s recipes. Don’t you think it is a pretty pattern? I just love how the yellow just makes the place settings pop!

The Cookware Set was a beautiful butter color, nonstick on the inside with a porcelain outside. I love having a matching set of pots and pans because it always looks so pretty when you are cooking everything on the stove. I was able to cook the sausage, boil the noodles and cook the roux for the sauce all at the same time.

I also received a Paula Deen Stoneware 9 x 13 Baker, and the first thing that came to mind was baked macaroni and cheese. With all of the butter yellow color and the gorgeous stoneware pan begging to be filled with my Grandma’s recipe, how could I not. However, the husband had a hankering for pizza, so we compromised.

    I love the deep frypan with the lid! I had one but after many, many years of use, it finally had to be thrown out and I have not found another deep enough. This one is great!

    I’d love every single piece! But if I had to pick just one, and it’s hard, I’d have to go with the large pot.

    My favorite is the largest covered pot. I love to make soups and spagetti sauce and love the larger pots. Thanks so much and Happy Holidays :)
