    Mmm, excellent level of sneakiness in this kids recipe. (For adults I'd add cayenne, worchestershire, diced pimento... even green bell pepper for crunchiness.)

    this recipe not printing again, even saved it to my collections which worked last time to be able to print. Any ideas why the recipes won't print anymore?

    I love cayenne pepper and a little nutmeg with my mac and cheese. That may do the trick.
