    S3b4s's Note:

    I've adapted this recipe off of others after not finding exactly what I want in the ones I've tried. Try not to use extra sharp or aged cheeses, they don't melt well and contribute to the grainy texture everyone talks about in macaroni and cheese. Also, make sure all your cheese is grated and macaroni is boiled and drained before finishing the cheese sauce. Overcooking or letting it sit too long can also make the texture grainy.

      I made mac & cheese all the time. but it usually consists of cutting up my 3-5 kinds of cheeses adn throwing the cubes in with the maccaroni adn tossing that in the oven, my cheese always melts in clumps, never creamy. I found this recipe. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO YUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMMMYYYYYYYY!!!! and very easy. my new family fav. I added some broccoli & ham to mine to make it a meal
