This time of the year in New England is all about comfort food, especially with the bitter cold and snow and economic hardships a nice hearty plate of comfort food is sometimes all it takes to make your worries disappear for but even a few seconds. When I asked people what there favorite comfort foods were a majority of the responses were Macaroni and Cheese. Now I make a damn good macaroni and cheese but since I don’t follow recipes and was self taught I wanted to do a little research on the origins of said comfort food. Below you will find links to some of the best history posts and also a few of my favorite Macaroni and Cheese recipes. ( I really got start writing what I do down but I just am not a recipe guy, I follow my palate and instincts)
