I’m not gonna lie to you—I have boxed mac & cheese at home. There are two boxes of shells and cheese sitting in my cupboard just pining to be my next dinner. But here’s the real truth: they’ve been sitting there for months gathering dust, and they will continue to do so. Do you want to know why? Nine times out of ten I just want the real deal. I want real extra-sharp Cheddar (just enough to make it taste great) and I want to be able to pronounce what goes onto my dinner plate. (Sodium Tripolyphosphate, anyone? Mmmmmm, yummy!)

On any given weeknight in my household, at precisely 6:05 p.m., there is a flurry of activity all within 7 square feet of our kitchen island.
