    Recipe (Vegan) Baked Almond Nut Cheese (Feta Style)

    I have to say that this is the first cheese that I've made using almond nuts and I rather like it. The cheese is meant to be similar to a feta and in some ways I guess it is but I personally won't user the word feta to describe it. It does, however, have a really nice clean taste to it. It...

    Retro Recipe Daisy Duck's Divinity

    I'm going to call this a retro recipe because I first got the recipe when I was a young child reading Highlight's magazine.

    Food Allergies

    Do you or does any member of your family have food allergies? What kinds of precautions do you use to keep the item out of your home? I guess it must consist of lots of label reading. I know some people can even develop food allergies who may not have had them previously.
