Mac 'n' Cheese–and Hunks!

Hey there, gang! Angel Payne here, excited to help celebrate BETTER THAN SEX NOVEMBER. And I have to tell you right now that this recipe I'm sharing is damn near orgasmic.

Hello, Dear Reader!  I know, I know, I'm late.  But I have a good reason!  It's NaNoWriMo!  Well, that, and I was down in Hyde Park today visiting the amazing Chicago Innovation Exchange at the University of Chicago.  It's an incredible place.  I was up at 05:00, though, and wrote my morning pages, scrambled into the shower and threw myself onto Lakeshore Drive at 07:00.

Today I worked on some posts for my own blog, the craft one that I call Knoontime Knitting.  I've been ...
