Keep in mind this is the first time I have cooked a real meal. I love love love mac and cheese, just any version at a homestyle restaurant. My obsession came from childhood and eating at hometown buffet. So I love creamy mac and cheese. This is part of the reason why my rating is only four. I wasn't necessarily expecting creamy or anything, but it did come across as dry. It was just melty cheese that stiffened, but it was soft and gooey enough for me. I went into the grocery store, not sure how much of the recipe I wanted to make. But when I looked at the prices of the cheese, I was about to make a 2 person serving. I was so shocked, but I really wanted to make the recipe. So I bought, a 10 oz block of Vermont and 8 oz block of Asiago... and I didn't really grate the cheese, I kind of half heartly did and mainly shredded. I had to do this for about 1.5 hrs. I managed to get 2 cups of each cheese (although I don't think it should've been that much), so I made half the recipe, and it was too much cheese IMO. There are way too many separate things going on this recipe that it stressed me out being an unexperienced and anal (about measurements) cook. All the dishes left afterward made me upset. But I love bacon and onions and the breadcrumbs so it redeemed itself. I blame myself for it not coming out the best, because when I reheat it, it tastes brand new and a little more creamy, but overall I just want regular mac n cheese. Too expensive and fancy. :P
