This was a great creamy plain old fashioned macaroni and cheese. The first time I made it I used whipping cream and sour cream in place of all the milk. Wow... creamy, comforting and fattening. I did not use garlic powder because even though I love it, it did not sound good in mac and cheese. I had no ground mustard so I left that out, and the amount of pepper sounded way off base so I only used 1/4-1/2 t until it tasted good to me. I also used crushed corn flakes instead of bread crumbs to the top of the casserole and drizzled the whole thing with another 1/2 cup of melted butter. I baked it about 45-50 minutes, because it was not hot and bubbly in the center at 30 minutes. Definitely use a larger pan if you have one. This went right to the top of my largest oblong glass dish.

Too much flour! The texture was PASTY!! Otherwise, a good recipe. Next time I will use less flour & really didn't need that much black pepper either. Especially when feeding this to little kids.
