MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 25, 2015

"My kids and grandkids love a creamy Mac and Cheese rather than the baked version. This one is perfect. It has a wonderful flavor and turned out smooth and creamy. The recipe makes a large amount, but I cooled the leftovers and froze individual packs for the kids to reheat. This reminds me of a "name brand" frozen mac and cheese that is so much more expensive, but tastes way better."

"I made this for the first time a few months ago. Everyone loved it. Rich, creamy,, and easy. My 3 teenagers turn their nose up at regular Mac and cheese now. This has become a true staple in our home."

"Luscious, creamy, flavorful, perfect. I shared it on FB. Definitely my go-to mac n' cheese recipe! Perfect for our Super Bowl party. I'm so glad we had a bit leftover so I can have more today. I'm sure you could freeze small portions for an easy side dish anytime!"

MY REVIEW

"This was excellent! I actually doubled the recipe, and put it all in one crockpot. It barely fit, so I would probably just divide it into two crockpots next time. Since it was so full, I started it on high for a couple hours, then finished it on low for a couple more hours, stirring every hour or so and checking the temperature to make sure it got to 160. Everyone loved it. Will definitely make this one again."
