    Chef Louisa's Note:

    This took years to make mac & cheese like "Nan" used to make. I finally got it right by accident (being low on the cheese & decreasing the amount). How funny it is when I got it right by being low in stock on the main ingredient. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family & I do. I make this all year round and it's worth the effort. It's a big hit at Church pot lucks too.

      This is the Real Deal - just what I was craving. Good old fashioned comfort food, nothing "foo foo". I added 1/2 tsp dry mustard and 1/8 tsp powdered onion and had to make myself just walk away to keep from standing at the counter and eating it all before I could get it to the table for dinner! Thanks for posting.
