A New Super Easy Dairy Free, Soy Free Mac N’ Cheese

I have a bit of an obssession with Mac N Cheese.  It’s probably my most favorite thing in the whole world to eat!  So I decided it was time to update you all on our current recipe.  LOVE this!  I take it to pretty much ever pot luck and Mom’s with dairy free kids are always amazed.  It is so creamy and the cheese evenly coats the macaroni.  This one is a winner!  Italian pasta isolated

Dairy Free, Soy Free Mac N’ Cheese (I used gluten free elbows too)

1 Package of Sam Mills Gluten Free Pasta
1 Package Daiya cheddar shreds
1.25 cups of water
1 Teaspoon garlic powder
1 Teaspoon of Onion Powder
2 Tablespoons soy free Earth Balance (You can use coconut oil too!) 

Cook the pasta in one pan and everything else in another pan. Once the cheese sauce is melted and the pasta is cooked drain the pasta and mix the two together.

Then end!

Veggie Fajita’s From the Crockpot!

Our homelife is in a state of transition right now.  My husband, who honestly does most of the cooking, just accepted a new job that requires him to work later than we are used to.  This means I’ve got to get into the kitchen more often.  That’d be all well and good, except I don’t always have the time!  Quite simply there just aren’t always enough minutes in between the kid’s evening activities to COOK a real meal!  But I refuse to give up our family meals and healthy dishes.  So I’ve decided to become better acquainted with our crockpot, which has sat largely unused since we gave up meat.


Last night I tried veggie fajitas.  I got the idea from a blog called The Pieper Life but the general idea is very simple. Chop up your veggies, add your spices, spray the pot with a little oil and cook on low for 4 hours.  The results were fantastic!  Yes, even my children enjoyed our dinner.  It worked perfectly too as I was able to walk in from one activity, dish out the food to eat up, toss everything in the dishwasher and race off to the next activity.  Plus I have leftovers for lunch later in the week.

So I’m on the hunt for plant-based crockpot recipes!  Anyone have any links to share with me?
