Fancy-But-Easy Mac N' Cheese
Easy and delicious. I make this all the time, and people always rave about it. I really like how the brown sugar tastes with the creaminess of the cheese. I omit the onion because I don't find that it adds anything.

Four Egg Yellow Cake
This was my first time making yellow cake, and it turned out great. I made cupcakes (this recipe yielded 30) and baked them for 19 minutes. They are very moist and the flavor is great. I did use butter instead of shortening, and sifted the flour, as other users had suggested. I also made sure to cream the butter and sugar very thoroughly, until it was nice and fluffy (which is what you should do with any cake, anyway). An excellent and simple recipe!
