So, I told you that I spearheaded a plan rather last minute-like, to put on a Chili-Mac-n'-Cheese-Dssert Bake Off. I myself planned on entering some sort of cup cakes. (That was a given.)
And then I decided to make and enter a mac n' cheese entry. Now, I hadn't ever made mac n' cheese from scratch, so naturally I went to Pinterest and googled up "best mac n' cheese" and about a gajillion recipes and pictures popped up,
After a bit of research, I selected this recipe. (The secret ingredient is crumbled Ritz crackers on top of the mac n' cheese.) I then decided that I needed a practice run at the recipe, just to be sure it was the best, and I ran to the grocery store and bought my ingredients.(In case you haven't made homemade mac n'cheese yourself, it isn't as inexpensive as the kind you make from the little blue box the people at Kraft put out, that's for sure.)
I followed the recipe to the letter, and served it up for my Rock n' Roll Buddy for supper Saturday evening, and sent the rest over to my daughter's home for a repeat performance for her family on Sunday.
Oh. My. Ga.
There are no words to fully describe the near out-of-body experience that occurred when we took our first bite.
One and a half pounds of Gruyere and cheddar cheeses, with two cups of heavy cream (Please, let's not think about the calories here) create the ultimate comfort food.
Oh yes, this recipe lives up to it's name.
