The Best Macaroni and Cheese. Ever. for Real.

“Sooooo... have figured out the secret to incredibly rich, incredibly creamy macaroni and cheese. Don't bake it. At all. Completely unnecessary and messes with the texture that is so integral to a satisfying macaroni and cheese experience. Because, frankly, if I'm going to do mac and cheese, I'm going to have it how I want it. And how my kids want it. And my neighbour. And my ex husband. And anyone else who has had the good fortune to try it out. Give it a shot; you'll be very happy you did. Be warned: very rich, very satisfying.”
