Muentser Mac and Cheese

Macaroni and Cheese is one of my all time favorite foods. Pizza runs a close second! I’m not kidding when I say if I could only eat one food the rest of my life it would be macaroni and cheese. And, I’m not talking about the kind in the blue box. I’m talking homemade white sauce with any blend of creamy cheese! Ahhhh – comfort food at it’s finest!!

My Muenster Mac and Cheese is creamy and mild. Try if for a change.

    Oh. My. Goodness. I love mac and cheese. But I've never thought homemade was all that great. But why, on earth, have I never heard of using Muenster cheese before?! It's only the best cheese ever! Thanks for sharing!
