I love cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. Bread, meat, cakes, you name it I love to make it. There is one exception; there is one food that I dread the kids will ask for.
Mac and Cheese!!!
I have a love/ hate relationship with Macaroni & Cheese. I love to eat it, but I hate to make it. I have tried numerous recipes, and I always feel like a failure. It never works. It is always too runny or too dry; I can never make it just right. Until today…
Since it is quiet Saturday with no plans to keep us busy, I decided to try Chrissy Teigen’s recipe for her mac and cheese from her cookbook Cravings. Every review I read said it would be the best Mac & Cheese I have ever tried, and they didn’t lie!
It was a lot of work, and I made a few small changes to the recipe based on things I know I like about Mac & Cheese. I added 1/2 tsp of dry mustard and an 1/8 teaspoon of chili powder, plus I added a bit of parsley on top. Oh and I had to use macaroni noodles instead of shells. The recipe was easy to follow, and I had everything I needed in my fridge and pantry. My fave part was the garlic breading on top. It is very addictive!
I encourage you to google this recipe down and try it for yourself. Here’s a picture of my attempt.
In the meantime, if you are in neighbourhood, drop by. I made enough to feed a couple of families.
Enjoy. Happy Cooking!
