Every once in a while I make a full-fat dish. One of my favorite comfort foods is macaroni and cheese. I make a decent enough lightened version good enough to kill a craving. But occasionally, only the real deal will do.
This one from Ina Garten came from her TV show, Barefoot Contessa. It sounded awesome. Three kinds of cheese and bacon. Her Grown Up Mac and Cheese sounded like a delicious twist on a longtime favorite.
But it fell short. I honestly think it was the Roquefort cheese. Maybe the flavor was too much and too strong for my taste. And I feel like such a fraud saying this, but it was almost too rich. Overall vote is that although it looked fantastic on TV, it wasn't worth the points spent.
