There is a strong emotional attachment to macaroni and cheese. Cheese and pasta... it's no wonder people of all ages gravitate to this decadent delight.. simple and our taste buds love it. And it's so easy to make with Kraft Dinner a staple in many kitchen cupboards I too grew up with Kraft Dinner. Mom loved that I loved it, and it was easy to make and inexpensive. Like mother like daughter, so when my kids were little, I didn't hesitate to go the simple route and dish out this pleasing meal. Of course, our Macaroni and Cheese is a little different now. This whole-food, dairy-free version is AMAZING. Jamie said; "This is one of my favourite recipe so far! My boyfriend couldn't believe there wasn't any cheese in it. " Enjoy this recipe and hopefully, it brings back those incredible memories of just eating a good old fashion bowl of Mac'n & Cheese.
I'm not all about salads and avocados. I'm human just like you and I love the decadent desserts too,. My grandfather always use to say, "Save me the middle of the donut". Maybe it was his way of saying, I am trying to stay healthy. Well, this donut recipe you can enjoy the entire donut, not just the middle LOL, and I even approve it as a breakfast option! Have a happy day!!

With the holidays over, we may find ourselves in need of a little TLC. I know I may have rubbed shoulders with a few people fighting a cold.... and being the holidays... extra stress, late nights and indulging a little more than usual (yes I ate truffles), my immune system was compromised and welcomed some uninvited guests. At the first sign of a cold, I infuse my body with liquids, preferably warm nourishing teas and bone broths and eat a lot of roasted and raw garlic (sorry if I smell extra nice). Check out the Roasted Garlic recipe on my site!! Supplementation is important when battling infection, including probiotics & Vit C along with essential oils like clove. Most importantly rest, early bedtime and reduced sugar and low-carb diet (sugar will suppress your immune system) is key to reducing the duration and severity of illness.
If you have invited me over for an event/party, then you likely have asked me to bring my famous guacamole. And the reason why is because it's so darn delicious. This guacamole recipe has been in my family for 19 years, come this New Years Eve. The only change we have made to it was switching from peeling/seeding tomatoes to dicing plum/cherry tomatoes (so much easier). This year, my guacamole made another Xmas eve appearance and come New Years there will be an encore. If your party planning is in full swing as we prepare to ring in the new year, this dish will complement your meal and definitely impress your guests. Enjoy!!
