This past week at The Kitchn we spent some time revisiting favorite family recipes and some nostalgic classics. We showed you how to make perfect stovetop mac and cheese, creamy and simple. We gave you a warm fudgy pudding cake, one of the easiest and most crowd-pleasing desserts you can imagine. And we took on that hoary picnic classic — lime Jell-O pudding, turning it into a fresh, creamy fluff — an elegant little pudding that winks at its origins.
