Reviewed Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Not the simplest mac and cheese recipe ever but worth the extra effort. Very smooth and tasty! Of course I can never leave well enough alone; I added a teaspoon of garlic powder, and I finely minced up some broccoli crowns and stirred in halfway through the simmering portion of the process, to hide some veggies in there!

The directions are wrong, they tell you to cook the bread for too short a time. After following the directions to the letter, the middle of the bread was undercooked, needed at least another 10 minutes of bake time. (and on the show, the baking directions Claire quotes are NOT the directions given on the recipe). Aside from that, this is a very...
