Grown-Up Grilled Cheese & A Giveaway!


If you know anything about me, you know I love me some Follow Your Heart. From Vegenaise to Creamy Garlic Dressing, to Vegan Scrambled Eggs, to Provolone Slices...I love it all. So, I was super excited to get a sample of the new Smoked Gouda Slices and the Parmesan Shreds to play around with in the kitchen.

Gametime Snacks: Cashew Queso

Only a few more days until the big game! I thought I might take a little break from buffalo flavored snacks and, instead, in my continuing effort to provide you with the best vegan gametime snacks, here is my favorite Queso recipe. It is from my and Celine's new book Vegans Go Nuts! which will be out later this year.

Cashew Queso

*Oil-Free Option *Soy-Free *Gluten-Free
This makes a ton of queso. Perfect for putting in a crock pot to keep warm at a get together. It’s also pretty awesome to stir in a can (or two) of your favorite vegan chili. You can also pack it up in Jars and keep it refrigerated (or frozen) until you are ready to use it. Or…simply cut the recipe in half and you will still have plenty of queso to last for several dip and chip sessions. If you want to save time, you can stir in some of your favorite salsa at the end, instead of chopping up all of those fresh veggies.

Gametime Snacks: Beer Battered Buffalo Mac and Cheese Balls


I am sure having a blast planning and testing out some deep fried deliciousness for the big game next Sunday. A few years back I featured a recipe for deep fried mac and cheese balls in my and Celine's book Home Cooked Vegan Comfort Food. And they were delicious...But, I felt for a game as important as the 50th, I needed to step it up a notch.  And as I said in my previous post, buffalo is a must for gameday. I also changed the batter up to include an almost corndog like flavor. Crispy and crunchy on the outside, rich and creamy on the inside. They aren't too spicy, just a hint of heat. That way you can add extra heat to your liking with a variety of dipping sauces! (As if deep fried mac and cheese wasn't good enough on its own...)
