As a child I thought good mac n'cheese was the blue store bought Kraft instant mac n' cheese; full of artificial flavoring and neon orange powdered "cheese". I know LAME. But hey I was a 90's kids with two working parents who did their best with convenience products.
Fast-forward 10ish years and I'm in college where I HAVE to cook for myself and that means I get to make WHATEVER the hell I want. Sometimes I'm feeling "college-y" and left-overs are my only option OR I feel like putting on my Emeril Lagasse apron and unleashing my inner chef.
Tonight was the latter and viola! I present to you a delicious and original recipe by yours truly :)
Always in that classic blue box VS
