13WMAZ Recipes from the Heart: Flo's Mac & Cheese

↓ Advertisement ↓

13WMAZ's Suzanne Lawler is making her away around Central Georgia and she's gathering up recipes.

Her first stop was Warner Robins where she visited Florence Mathis who revealed her family's secret macaroni and cheese.

We were live from Flo's home Friday morning where she talked about the love - and tons of cheese in - in her special dish.

We've already received calls to the newsroom from people wanting the recipe.
