It may have all started with the success of my cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook? Or it could have been inspired by the crackers I made from scratch on Christmas Day being such a huge hit? Which ever success it was, I most definitely have been inspired to venture out and try some more new recipes. Last week I made a very hearty and delicious Italian Stew, a recipe I received from Daily Candy a few weeks ago. Today I made Mac & Cheese from scratch. It is an old Martha Stewart recipe that I cut out of her Living magazine years ago and finally had the confidence to attempt it! It was a heck of a lot more complicated and time consuming to make than Mac & Cheese out of a box, but oh so worth it!!!
