To: Dancer Just to let you know, I made your yummy mac 'n cheese dish this evening. Made a dandy side for burgers (an easy Friday night meal). I love mac 'n cheese on the stove, but mine is pretty bland. I like your seasonings better. I think they "wake" the mac up! Thanks for sharing. Laudee C. Colorado

Insanely awesome. I've been looking for a home made, non-bake, non-flour based recipe. I can stop looking. Perfect as written and at the same time a great base to innovate from. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
