Comfort food is in everyone's wheel house.  And the simplest dishes that appeal to kids can take on culinary flare to please your guests when they gather for wine and appetizers.

Don't forget about the Mac N Cheese!

Brandy Clabaugh, of She Knows came up with a really cool classic, simple recipe, and converted it into an adult surprise.   She says this is perfect to eat for lunch or even to freeze into small lunch-size portions.

Now, when you want the adult version just add shrimp, lobster, pancetta, poblano peppers or anything that's over-the-top.  Enjoy!
