When I lived in San Francisco, I had a birthday dinner party once in my apartment in the lower Pacific Heights district. One of my friends asked me what I was requesting for the menu and I had two must-haves: The garlicky, 4-cheese mac and cheese from The Grove up the street and a chocolate cake with berries. Thinking back on it, it was probably totally terrible of me to inflict a garlic-cheese-fest on my dinner guests for an entire night than have them top it off with decadent cake - it’s like a lactose-induced nightmare. But, oh boy, did it taste AMAZING.
Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere recently posted her latest culinary endeavor, mac and cheese cups, complete with several droolworthy photos. Pictures like this one trigger a Pavlovian response in me: I’m a fan of carbs and curdled cow juice, making macaroni and cheese a perfect marriage in my mouth.
