|| mmm... mac and cheese
I just got back from Barnes and Noble, where I felt obligated to get this book entirely because of its title: Macaroni & Cheese: 52 Recipes from Simple to Sublime (Amazon link to paperback version, but I got the hardcover). If the names of the recipes below intrigue you, I suggest you plop down the $7.89 the next time you're at B&N and test out a few recipes. When I get around to trying some, I'll let you know what I think.

From inside the book jacket cover:
"Simple and perfect, macaroni and cheese is the ultimate comfort food. Now, for the first time in one collection, dozens of well-known chefs, including Bobby Flay (geekers' side note: Ugh. Flay.), Rocco DiSpirito, Charlie Palmer, David Burke, Matthew Kenney, Katy Sparks, and Rick Bayless, share favorite recipes from both their childhood memories and their award-winning restaurants. There are plentiful incarnations of the classic Mac and Cheese, from chef's home kitchens and from renowned restaurants; international versions, such as Macaroni and Manchego and Farfalle al Quattro Formaggi; contemporary combinations including Penne with Roquefort, Green Chile Mac and Cheese, and Fontina and White Truffle Macaroni. There are recipes for a quick and soothing family dinner or an elegant dinner party with an innovative flair. Simple and straightforward enough for the novice cook, yet creative and sophisticated enough for the experienced chef, this new take on a classic will delight for years to come."
I'm willing to type out and post one of the recipes contained within the book, but if you want the rest, you'll have to go purchase it. If you have any preference regarding which recipe I type out, let me know in the comments. :D Mmm... mac n cheese. :9
