Check out the stylish pictures on my fridge. My nephews, Noah & Adam, have some mad coloring skillz. This cuteness warms my heart.
And Patti LaBelle’s Macaroni & Cheese warms my belly.
Miss Patti made this macaroni & cheese on Oprah. It has since made the rounds around numerous friends. It’s that good! A big thanks to my lovely friend, Kat, for introducing me to it!
