log_jammin:  It's what happens when you tell a country for a few decades that scientists don't know what they're talking about and the average layperson can use some "common sense" and know just as much as science does.

znapel: 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.


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

CheekyMonkey: dodecahedron: CheekyMonkey: dodecahedron: They should just use turmeric.

Yup.  That's what I throw in my homemade mac'n'cheese.  As an added bonus, my mac'n'cheese doesn't taste like that yellow plastic shiat that Kraft puts out.

\mixture of extra-sharp cheddar and smoked gouda FTW

Yup! I use my Masterbuilt smoker to make killer smoked mac and cheese. I use greek yogurt in it instead of some of the cream/cream cheese, a good multigrain elbow or fusillli, top with seasoned panko crumbs and it works great.

Hey, I remember you from Photoshop contests years back, good to see your name pop up.

You're probably thinking of CheekyMunky, who I haven't seen around here in years.  I don't have any Photoshop skillz.

Thanks for the idea of using Greek yogurt.


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.

Fark really needs a food tab, I don't care how much people laugh and mock it whenever this is mentioned, but dammit, there's some good collective knowledge here.

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.

Yogimus: Sweet jebus, link me your recipe!


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.

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.

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.
