Easter is right around the corner and many of you will be entertaining family and guests in your home. I thought it would be fun to share my tips with you on creating a beautiful centerpiece for your Easter table using things you can cut from your yard. First you will need to gather some beauties from your yard.
The origins of macaroni and cheese may not be southern, but like so many things, it has been perfected here. Although the box with the yellow "cheese" powder is certainly a staple for kids and college students, the homemade version is a mainstay on the Church covered dish table. There are many variations on the recipe, from different types of cheeses to the cooking method used.
We've chosen some of our favorite mac & cheese recipes to share with you. Which is the best? That depends on to whom and how you're serving it!

This baked version is perfect for delivering to someone's home, when there's been a birth or death in the family or someone's sick or shut-in. This cooking method provides the prettiest presentation, so it is often used when hosting others in your home for a meal.
Stovetop Mac and Cheese
This stovetop recipe is creamy and delicious for a meal at home with your family. It is a quick and easy side dish that uses ingredients most people keep on hand! This recipe has become a staple at Tara's house, making boxed versions a thing of the past.
