    From my personal archives, here's a classic soul food recipe. Reminds me of when I lived in West Palm Beach and used to go to Riviera Beach to a soul food joint and eat ribs, collard greens, macaroni & cheese and peach cobbler. YUMMMM!.

    1 pound dry elbow macaroni
    Hot water
    4 tablespoons ( 1/2 stick) butter
    1 tablespoon seasoned salt, such as McCormick's
    1 teaspoon white pepper
    1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
    4 eggs, divided
    1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk, divided
    2 cups shredded mild or sharp cheddar cheese
    Few tablespoons of shredded cheese for garnish
    Paprika for garnish

    Place the elbow macaroni in a large pot and cover with at least 5 quarts of warm water. Place the pot over high heat and bring to a boil. Once the water comes to a boil, remove the pot from the heat, cover and let stand for 15-20 minutes, or until the macaroni is just tender. Drain and briefly rinse the macaroni.
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    Transfer the macaroni to a large baking dish. While the macaroni is still hot, add the butter, seasoning salt, white pepper and Cajun seasoning until the butter melts. In a small bowl, mix together 3 of the eggs with 1/2 can of the evaporated milk and stir it into the macaroni. Add 1 cup of the cheese and continue to stir to melt the cheese. Stir in the remaining 1 cup cheese. Mix together the remaining 1 egg and 1/2 can of evaporated milk and blend it into the macaroni.
    Sprinkle additional shredded cheese over the top and sprinkle with paprika.
    Bake, uncovered, about 30-45 minutes or until the macaroni is firm.
    Remove from oven and serve.

    That shit is dece on its own, but throw in a handful of some shredded cheese (sharp cheddar) and some salt-free multi purpose seasoning blend and you have yourself a winner.

    Sometimes I make the mac and cheese the regular way, then put it in a casarole, mix in some different shredded cheeses (usually regular cheeder, sharp chedder and mozzarella) and then bake it. Then it's off the hizzle.

    +1. Sharp cheese really brings out the flavor. I like Irish Chedder that you get from Trader Joe's.

    What VM said. Southern black culture has produced some great down-home rib-sticking chow: Mac N Cheese, Ribs, Fried Chicken, Peach Cobbler, Collard greens cooked with salt pork -- uhm. I love soul food and hate that I can no longer get it.

    The most classic is preparing it by the directions on the side of the box.
