  2. unni! Thanks for this recipe. I actually was seriously looking a recipe exactly like this!!! Anyway, what happened to the mac n cheese recipe? I bought the ingredients today and I came to your site for the instructions and it’s not here…. 😦

  3. So glad you have this recipe here. Is this similar to what we all ate a long time ago at Nom’s house?

    P.S. I love this place! Such a happy place with lots of good food ^__^

    Mmmmm, sounds good! I will look forward to trying this with wild fresh Nova Scotia mussels

  5. This is very similar to a family recipe but I add a bit of Dijon mustard with the creme and some vermicelli goes well with the dish.
