in the kitchen with: mamie patton’s macaroni and cheese – Design*Sponge

This week’s recipe comes from someone who doesn’t have an internet presence at all. Mamie Patton was a family friend of my aunt and her family for several years, which is how I was fortunate enough to enjoy her delicious food. Growing up in an African American family in the South, there were some foods that felt like family tradition. Mac and Cheese was one of our favorites and no one’s recipe warmed my heart (and my stomach) like Mamie’s. I used her recipe as a guideline, substituting cheeses for ones I love and adding different spices to fit my palate.  It’s not something I can eat every day, in any case, but is a nice treat once or twice a year.  –Kristina
