I'm totally hooked on this show! Genius! I have learned so much and I'm almost 65! *Chuckle* Seriously though, I love the cooking and baking ideas and the equipment tests are so valuable! I have spent way too much on fail equipment!!! Thanks again! Maybe think about presenting us some great Keto recipes as well !

Hold the bread crumbs

R P says:

I purchased the 2021 ATK TV cookbook, and I found two stovetop mac and cheese recipes but neither of them are this recipe. Has anyone else experienced this problem with the cookbooks?

Becky: "Can you keep an eye on this for me?"
Julia: "You bet!"
Also Julia: immediately turns away from the saucepan and ignores it completely for the entire time

Lisa Cup says:

This version is a crime against mac n cheese. You have to bake it so you get a cheese crust on top. I've had their version at high end restaurants and it has no flavor. Chick Fil A's mac n cheese is better than any expensive restaurant mac n cheese.

C. H. says:

Love these gals! Looks so good!

Kathleen5429 says:

Love you two! Thanks for all your great recipes.

Brian L Meyers says:

Looks great! But what happened to only four ingredients?

E Grainger says:

Hi, what could I substitute American Deli cheese with. I live in Scotland.

washedup579 says:

im a couple years late to this party, but this 4 ingredient mac and cheese seemed to have nine ingredients…..

SILentjudgmENT says:

Surprised there's no butter in the Mac.

Marthe Simard says:

The turkey meat loaf sounds great. Would ground chicken work as well?

Ruby Twilite says:

If you love the taste of dijon mustard and you add too much, the milk curdles and the sauce becomes chunky so follow the recipe exactly. I have added leftover crumbled blue or gouda and it has been delicious!

ANF1432 says:

I am gluten intolerant so I only cook with pure whole ingredients. I watch your sho every day as you pay attention to every detail so the results are perfectly delicious. My cooking has become so improved with good quality ingredients and the knowledge that you impart in your segments. Thanks you and I'll keep watching. Ann

M Ladd says:

You're suppose to be pros and you use two cups of ketchup? You should be ashamed of yourselves!
