Who else associates mac and cheese with happy childhood memories?  I’m definitely raising my hand for this one.

One day, I was eating my American/Nacho Cashew “Cheese” and I realized that it would […]

Oil Free Spinach Pesto

Oil Free Vegan Spinach Pesto Tossed with Rotini Pasta

Pesto is absolutely one of my favorite sauces ever.  It’s so creamy, garlicy, and all around yummy. Unfortunately, most store bought pesto is made with dairy and lots of oil in it.  Also, fresh basil is expensive, and it adds up fast in a recipe like this.  So, I love making it with spinach. It’s […]
