I cringe when the kids want the boxed mac and cheese because I feel it tastes like chemicals and know it it full of them.
Several attempts yielded thick and dry results. 20 tries later I finally got it. This recipe makes a creamy sauce that is smooth and velvety without being gummy.
They are used to the thinner sauce, right?
