I've never made mac & cheese from scratch, but thought I'd try it out for once. Let me tell you...cheese is expensive! Especially fancy cheeses like Gruyere. Overall it was pretty easy to make if you have a blender or food processor. This mac & cheese recipe had pasta, egg, milk, garlic, onion, extra-sharp cheddar, Gruyere, cream cheese and some spices. It was topped with a saltine cracker topping.
The result? It looked and smelled great. The taste was good, but not great for homemade mac and cheese. I think the sharpness of the cheeses and the heavy amount of onion were things I'd change for the future. The cracker topping rocked - it was very light and crispy. I'll have to search for other mac & cheese (or non-cheese) recipes for the future.
Although it was the hottest day this year, I still wanted to make a Rhubarb Crisp to eat with our Green Tea Ice Cream, so I kept the oven on and continued cooking. To tone down the tartness of the rhubarb, I added a few frozen raspberries. This dessert turned out great! I love the oat/brown sugar topping so much that I'd have any kind of fruit crisp with it. I took pictures, but they didn't turn out, so you'll have to use your imagination :)
