Over a Cup of Coffee: Three recipes using mac and cheese

When days are busy, as they have been for me lately, and I don’t have much time to fix supper, I like to turn to recipes like those featured in this week’s column. They’re quick to fix and don’t call for many ingredients.

I use leftover macaroni and cheese to make casseroles — a lot — so I know that these recipes are good. You can add ingredients, such as vegetables, to make the recipes your own. All of this week’s recipes are courtesy of Geraldine Coleman, of Craig. Thanks, Geraldine.
