"Delicious and creamy! My first attempt at homemade mac n cheese and it was a success!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 16, 2015

"All the reviews are great, but the flour ruined the sauce for me. I'd definitely recommend no flour! So, it turned out bad for me, but I want to try again without flour to see if it's as delicious as the reviews say!"
