Everything I’ve ever learned about making a good grilled cheese, I learned from my husband. Over our 10+ years together I’ve tackled kitchen projects big and small, but the perfect grilled cheese always escaped me until he stepped in and taught me a few tricks.
All of which I applied the day I discovered Daiya. And even though I will gladly trot down to the market any day of the week and shell out $5 for a tiny wedge of cheese I’ll probably finish in 2 seconds, I’m in love with Daiya.
If there’s one guilty pleasure I have (I know – just one? So cute.) it’s mac ‘n’ cheese. When Chris went gluten-free it was hard to justify buying it in boxes for three reasons:
- Finishing an entire box on my own, while filling, also makes me feel like a little oinker.
- Leftover mac ‘n’ cheese never tastes the same. In fact, it usually tastes like nothing at all. What’s the deal with that?!
- Rice mac is just too expensive and not that good.
It seemed like every recipe I came across for cheese sauce was way too complicated. I entertained the idea of casseroles or other baked pasta dishes, but it wasn’t the same.
Finally, I found a recipe– an easy one– and altered it a bit, coming out with the creamiest, cheesiest, gluten-free-y-ist mac ‘n’ cheese ever.
