Right, the dye is the problem. Not all the cheap chemicals they use instead of real cheese.

I wouldn't mind this so much, especially from when I was a kid. When Kool-Aid came out with some new formula in the 60s, my sisters and I puked it up faster than anything in bright red vomit. As this apparently was a common problem with lots of kids, that Kool-Aid was pulled from the market ASAP.

I'm not cool about this as much as my situation after the BS caused about immunizations causing kids to get autism  That soccer mom logic was deadly for kids and the general public as well.

Right-wing butthurt is strong.  The history of synthetic dyes in food in this country is replete with bans and good evidence that they are mutagenic.  If the dialectic is between the natural colorants that they use in countries smart enough to force them to, and the synthetics they foist on people when they can, well America is a rich country.

But what I am really concerned with is my fellow farker.  How do you get so twisted that you sorry for corporations before people?  Was it some weird fad of right-wing iconoclasm in youth that calcified somehow in your adult cabesas?  Is it your anemic media diet?  What happens?

I make this recipe, which is a lot more stripped-down and doesn't really require much beyond stirring the white sauce. Generally I just use it to finish off whatever shredded cheeses have been sitting in the fridge the longest (so one or more of sharp cheddar, chipotle cheddar, pepper jack, habanero jack, etc.); the only addition I make is sprinkling mild paprika on top for color.

Favorited, thank you! Will have to try it next time! The alton brown one is SO good (I add 4 slices of diced bacon when I fold in the pasta) but it requires 3 pots, a pan, dicing an onion, tempering an egg, stirring/boiling the milk mixture... Ugh looks like my kitchen detonated. (Still, it's worth it)

That depends how the chemicals interact within the body. Do they get broken down? If so, into what compounds? Are those compounds filtered out by the body, or do they accumulate?

First, you're dragging politics into something it doesn't belong in.

Second, while you you would normally find people agreeing that big corporations are bad, Mouthy helicopter and activist Mommies who believe their crotch droppings are the most important things on Earth and the entire world should be padded and censored to make sure their children are safe are even worse than, and almost as destructive as, big corporations trying to poison us all.

My wife makes homemade all the time, in about 20 minutes.  I didn't want to eat it at first, I've grown up loving Yellow Death (my dad's term for it).  Now I like homemade better.  I wish I could post a recipe, but I haven't made it myself.  She basically creates makes a roux and then adds milk and cheese to make it into cheese sauce.  We don't bake it, just pour it over noodles.

That's the recipe I use. I usually put bacon pieces in mine and serve with buttermilk biscuits. The biscuits always take longer than the mac and cheese to make because it's too damned easy.

When I was a kid everybody said the yellow dye in Mountain Dew would make you sterile. Haven't heard anybody claiming that in a while, so now the new thing is cancer.

I think what to take away from all this is that everything you eat is going to fark your body up in some minute way over time, short of a glucose drip. And doing that would probably give you stomach cancer or something because it's empty all the time so the stomach acids eat away at the lining.

Nobody's getting out of this thing alive, calm the fark down and enjoy what you can of it.

Hmm, yellow 5 and 6 look like it would be fair to call for replacing them with annatto where feasible. They do have recognized issues, and that comment about yellow 6 having traces of carcinogen isn't unfounded.

But if you're really concerned, shouldn't you be feeding your children something better than mac 'n cheeze. I'm not talking granola and soy milk, but... Well, I guess knowing how to cook just isn't a thing anymore, is it?

no they are not--they are made in a factory.  a lab would be way too small of a place to produce the amount of dye that is produced on a daily basis.

THIS.
Make it a quick blonde roux using butter.  Add in whole milk and whatever mix of cheeses you like.  I like some cheddar, provalone, and pepper jack, but you could just as easily use a big chunk of Velveeta if that's your style.
Have the noodles cooked at the same time, or beforehand.  No way good Mac'n'cheese has to take an hour.

I remember back in the day hearing about yellow number five shrinking rat testicles, but with the addendum that a person would have to drink a swimming pool worth of Mountain Dew to get a similar amount of the coloring as compared to the rat. At the time it was laughed off as no one could drink that amount of Dew... but these days a gamer could probably do that easily.
On the bright side, a gamer with shrunken testicles would be less threatened by wooden slatted chairs.

Heat water in one pot. Put cream in another and put it on low.
Put noodles in boiling water.  Stir cream so it doesn't stick to pot.
Grate cheddar cheese into bowl. Stir cream so it doesn't stick to pot.  Dust the cheese with flour. Stir cream so it doesn't stick to pot.  Shake bowl. I like to add a little tarragon and a few drops of sriracha, YMMV.
When the cream starts to steam just a little, pick up cheese with fingertips and drop it into bowl, a little at a time. When all your cheese is gone, turn off the heat to the cheese sauce pot.
When the noodles are done, drain them and rinse them with cold water. pour them into the pot with the cheese sauce and stir.

Ta daa.

I make his other one from that episode,  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/stove-top-mac-n-cheese - recipe/index.html but with tweaks to make it easier.  Regular milk instead of evaporated, no egg (got tired of scrambling it in the pot), half the butter and cheese (I like my arteries soft, and this way I can eat more in a sitting with less guilt).  The sauce is done before the pasta, and that's with shredding my own cheese.  Takes about 20 minutes due to waiting for water to boil.

Is the other one better?  Maybe.  But it's pretty darn good (IMHO), takes 1/3 the time, and no unnaturally neon yellow powdered "cheese."

And never mind that the starch could give you diabetes all along.

That said, I do love me some macaroni and cheese - but pretty much the only time I can eat it now is either when I'm at a good southern restaurant (RIP McDonald's Soul Food Cafeteria in Charlotte), or at Chat 'n' Chew on W. 16th in Manhattan.

AirForceVet: I wouldn't mind this so much, especially from when I was a kid. When Kool-Aid came out with some new formula in the 60s, my sisters and I puked it up faster than anything in bright red vomit. As this apparently was a common problem with lots of kids, that Kool-Aid was pulled from the market ASAP.

I'm not cool about this as much as my situation after the BS caused about immunizations causing kids to get autism  That soccer mom logic was deadly for kids and the general public as well.


FIZZIES!

Killer Cheese - well, okay, for non-artisinal hipster cheese ->
hunt4freebies.com
Of course the plastic residue from the packaging on the cheese will also kill you - just not as fast.
The Mac & Cheese this makes will knock yer socks off if you're used to that crap in a box that comes with pre-packed sludge in a foil packet.  This?   This is a gateway cheese, a gate into a land of food that actually tastes like something other than grease. Beware- you will not be "okay" with pre packaged sludge anymore.  .  .

wildcardjack: Hmm, yellow 5 and 6 look like it would be fair to call for replacing them with annatto where feasible. They do have recognized issues, and that comment about yellow 6 having traces of carcinogen isn't unfounded.

But if you're really concerned, shouldn't you be feeding your children something better than mac 'n cheeze. I'm not talking granola and soy milk, but... Well, I guess knowing how to cook just isn't a thing anymore, is it?

AHAHAH... "wheeze" Ahahha... so you never made mac and cheese from scratch I see?

Twenty minutes sounds about right for actual prep time from scratch.  It'll take another 25-30 minutes baking, but you can go back to updating your blog while it does.

My former father in law had some of the cheese flavoring in a can (about two pounds of it) from his Y2k preps.  Check some of the LDS grocery sites you might find some.  We used it up as a sprinkle over veggies that weren't otherwise very good. (Cauliflower mostly.)

Speaking of, that cauliflower flour Kraft Mac N Cheese is pretty good.

rikkards: Wifey's family is from Holland (South Holland to be exact) and they were disgusted with ketchup and the thought of putting it on KD or eggs made it even worse. Until I pointed out putting chocolate sprinkles on your toast in the morning is what they call breakfast. We attributed it to idiosyncracies of our cultures and moved on.


Don't mess with the chocolate! It rocks. Everyone likes chocolate. Ketchup is sweet crap for kids and has no place in a meal. I once decided to make pasta but while cooking I noticed that I didn't actually have tomato purée. But one of the people I share the house with had tomato ketchup so I decided to just use that. That stuff is vile. It barely tastes like tomato.

Yogimus: Fart_Machine: They just don't say how much of that shait you have to eat before it results in any noticeable effect.  You'd probably die of the health effects of obesity before you ate enough to risk cancer.

That depends how the chemicals interact within the body. Do they get broken down? If so, into what compounds? Are those compounds filtered out by the body, or do they accumulate?


Excellent hypothesis. Google it and get back to me.

FTA In other countries, such as Norway and Austria, the fake dyes are banned completely. (Canada's fine with it, though.)

That's because in Canada they use the antioxidant properties of expensive fancy Dijon Ketchups to protect them.

Real Mac and cheese:

Cooked macaroni

Make two cups of béchamel sauce (that's a blond roux with whole milk that's allowed to thicken and become smooth)

Add 1.5 to two cups of grated cheeses. Cheddar, swiss and parmesan makes a good combination

Stir in the cheese, some black pepper, a dash of worcestershire sauce and a pinch of cayenne pepper and a bit of Dijon mustard. If it is too thick, thin with a little more milk or cream

Pour sauce over the macaroni and combine

Eat

Total time? About 20 minutes. If you want it baked, put it in a buttered casserole and top with more grated cheese or buttered bread crumbs and run it under the broiler for a few minutes.

Get some macaroni pasta. Now boil the pasta. Then drain the pasta. Now add cheese into the pasta. Mix until it melts.

That is somehow harder than a box with a bag of pasta and a bag of powder or cheese food product?

Gives it a nice tang. Experiment with amounts to find the blend you like. I use the extra sharp cheddar in mine as well and the yogurt adds a nice something to the mix plus creaminess.

This might work if you use 2 bags, separate the colors, then eat them in rainbow order about 2-3 hours apart.

If you want to do it right, It's gonna take a little more work than that, but it'll be so worth it!

1st:  3 bowls of Frankenberry.
2nd:  Bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos and a cherry Icee
3rd:  squash, sweet potatoes, carrots
4th:  Yellow fruit loops/trix/fruity pebbles, Gold pills, edible yellow glitter
5th:  mixed green salad, bottle of red wine, and a bowl of Boo-berry

FirstNationalBastard: signaljammer: Right-wing butthurt is strong.  The history of synthetic dyes in food in this country is replete with bans and good evidence that they are mutagenic.  If the dialectic is between the natural colorants that they use in countries smart enough to force them to, and the synthetics they foist on people when they can, well America is a rich country.

But what I am really concerned with is my fellow farker.  How do you get so twisted that you sorry for corporations before people?  Was it some weird fad of right-wing iconoclasm in youth that calcified somehow in your adult cabesas?  Is it your anemic media diet?  What happens?

//I think the cheap mac-y-cheese is
//getting to youse, maybe

First, you're dragging politics into something it doesn't belong in.

Second, while you you would normally find people agreeing that big corporations are bad, Mouthy helicopter and activist Mommies who believe their crotch droppings are the most important things on Earth and the entire world should be padded and censored to make sure their children are safe are even worse than, and almost as destructive as, big corporations trying to poison us all.

You don't actually know the FDA's food testing regulations, do you.

/Hint: They don't test any medication meant for women on actual women, don't test long-term, and let people virtually buy their way out. I don't know if you actually know any science, but that's called 'shiatty testing', and artificial dyes are pretty completely untested by the FDA, so no, they should not be in our food until proper testing is done.
