There’s a lot to know and love about America’s 40th president. He was born in Illinois, became a Hollywood superstar, and married one of the most beloved First Ladies in our country’s history, just to name a few. Did you know his favorite food was macaroni and cheese? You can’t get much more American than that! To honor him, we created Ronald Reagan’s Favorite Mac and Cheese!
