When life serves you lemons, make mac and cheese – because who needs lemonade when you’ve got creamy, dreamy goodness in a bowl?


  • 5 Cups Macaroni
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 4 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1/4 All Purpose Flour
  • 5 Cups Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 2/3 Cup Sour Cream
  • 2 teaspoons Dry Mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepepr
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  3. In a large pot, bring generously salted water to a rolling boil. Add the elbow macaroni and cook until they’re tender. Drain them and set aside.
  4. In a measuring cup, warm the milk and cream in the microwave, making sure not to boil them.
  5. In a large saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons of butter. Add the flour, creating a roux, and cook for 2-3 minutes. Gradually whisk in the warmed milk mixture.
  6. Add half of the cheddar cheese to the sauce, continuously whisking until it’s fully melted and well combined.
  7. Stir in the sour cream, followed by the dry mustard, cayenne pepper, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.
  8. Add the drained macaroni to the creamy sauce, mixing until they are fully coated. Transfer the mixture into your prepared baking dish.
  9. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese on top of the macaroni.

  10. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the mac and cheese is golden and bubbly.
