Vegan ‘Cheeze’ Sauce – Gluten and Dairy Free

Creamy, cheesy, and totally amazing, this cheese sauce tastes like normal cheese sauce! I cannot tell the difference! It is also much healthier than cheese sauce because it is made of vegetables! ‘Amy’s’ sells a frozen meal that is cheesy pasta with potatoes, tofu, broccoli, and red pepper. It is really tasty but is full…

Strawberry Shortcake (Gluten and dairy free)

This dessert was an adventure. It pushed me into the realm of coconut cream and dairy free adaptations. I think it turned out pretty incredible. We went to the farmer’s market and my favorites, hood strawberries, were being sold. The biggest problem with hoods, though, is that they decompose in about three days. That means…

Chocolate Ganache (Dairy and gluten free)

I like making ganache. I love the moment that you turn over the spoon and go from thin, gloppy, chocolaty goop to smooth, satiny, and creamy chocolate ganache. This ganache doesn’t use heavy whipping cream, (Obviously) but nondairy milk or an alternative creamer. You can make a small amount because there is no boiling cream…
