I DID IT!!!! "Easy Vegan Mac n Cheeze"

HEEEEEEEEY I DID!!!!!!! Ok I had not planned to cook anything for Easter but we received a free huge ham from the food pantry so ...... Since my plans changed I decided to make the ham, vegan mac n cheese, sauteed broccoli, a "baked" sweet potato for me and gluten free french baguettes.
Back to what I was originally saying, I used the recipe I posted on 3/15/16. I felt it was too good to be true, but it worked. Yes, I did add a little here and there. (I added the link to the original recipe at the bottom of the page) 

This is what I did:
The ingredients are really simple, I added the garlic seasonings and paprika. All I had to do was boil the GF noodles, drain them, put them back in the pot, and add the ingredients. The recipe called for 2tbs of Earth Balance , I used to huge 2 "Kitchen tablespoons" of Smart Balance. I put the exact amount of milk and nutritional yeast. The recipe called for 1/4 tsp of salt, (at some point you might have seen your mother or grandmother put seasonings in the palm of her hand, it roughly equals between 1 tsp to 1/4 tsp of course depending on how much you put in your hand, if you cook enough you know how to eyeball it)
I put a small palm of salt in it. 


The picture on the left are all of the ingredients in one pot, the right picture is when the Daiya cheese started to break down. It's starting to look like the picture from the original recipe!!!!
Oh yeah, I also added a large pinch of cheese from another bag of Daiya.

TA-DAAAAAAAAA! It looks like the Amy's Dairy Free, Gluten Free Frozen Mac N Cheeze.

Ok I had to make myself feel like I put in a lot of work so I sprinkled a little paprika on it. lol

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
