This recipe is a favorite of our talented friend Amy Brown, who hosts our video series, Where Goodness Grows. Amy is one busy woman! When she’s not co-hosting three national radio shows, her own podcast or creating a fashion line that benefits organizations and initiatives in Haiti, she’s spending quality time with her family and friends. Amy and her sister love to whip up this fantastic dish. Known in their family as "Alabama Mac & Cheese Yo!", it's named in honor of their Uncle Joe, who served it at all the family gatherings in Birmingham. He taught them step-by-step how to recreate its deliciousness, and ever since, they’ve loved sharing it with others. Check out Amy and the Where Goodness Grows series on YouTube.
