  • Last week, I stopped in at Dinner by Design on a whim. We were having friends over and I had a sudden craving for macaroni and cheese. Talk about a win-win! Not only did my Redstone Federal Credit card get me a surprise 10% discount but our guests adored the mac and cheese! The cooking time and serving sizes were both spot on, which meant I could pop it in the oven and not worry about it at all. Every potluck ever just got so much easier.
