That looks like something I can manage!

Re: Homemade Mac & Cheese Failure

When it tastes floury in my experience it isn't done cooking. It must come to just barely a simmer or it will taste floury.

Your butter to flour ratio is supposed to be 1 tablespoon flour to 1 table spoon of butter. Ratios for thin, medium, thick is 1, 2, and 3 Tablespoons. I cheat and mix my flour into the cold milk with a whisk so I can cut back on the butter. Then once it is mixed I add to a pot with the butter to melt the butter and thicken the mixture.
