When Cynthia Georgina managed a New Hampshire radio station, she also hosted a daily interview show. Tune in one day, and you heard all about using a divining rod to locate underground water. Tune in the next day, and you learned how to chart your family tree or your horoscope. Or locate your birth mother. Or make an almond-flavored dessert from China. You never knew. And that was the fun.
Of the following macaroni and cheese recipe, Cynthia says, "This recipe is delicious. The base is custardy and studded with olives and macaroni. I serve it with sliced ham, a salad, and corn muffins.

    This is absolutely the best mac & cheese recipe ever. I leave out the olives (my family doesn’t like them) and sometimes I add half a pound of deli ham, diced, for more protein. Now that I have this recipe I never make mac & cheese any other way!
