Tamara Schoolcraft Said:

These all look fantastic especially the Gluten-Free Mini Mac-and-Cheese Cakes with Corn Crust, however when I click on it I don’t see the recipe. Am I missing something?

Jeannie Said:

I am having the same problem. I would love the mac-and cheese recipe it looks wonderful and there is nothing to click.

Silvana Said:

So sorry! The link is fixed. Thanks for letting me know!

Jackie Said:

Question about the mini mac & cheese…… Have you tried it without the cheese by using soy cheese? The recipe looks delicious and my daughter would love it but unfortunately, she is dairy free also. Thanks

Silvana Said:

Hi Jackie,

Thanks for writing! I developed this recipe for Chex when there were few dairy-free options at the supermarket. I’ve been thinking about trying it because my daughter LOVES mac and cheese. I’d likely use:

Earth Balance Buttery Sticks (for the butter)
Daiya, Teese or Galaxy foods (for the cheddar)
Dairy free creamer (for the milk)

Hope that helps and let me know if you try it out!

Talk soon,
Silvana

Jeanne Said:

Hi Silvana,
I just saw this fantastic Mushroom soup but how do I make this without the dairy to be close to yours. I wonder is using rice milk or almond milk would give the cream sensation like “cream. I need your wisdom as a chef. Thanks Jeanne

Kimberly Said:

This is a wonderful resource you’ve built here Silvana! My boyfriend and I have recently chosen to try a gluten-free diet, and your site has helped us to have some of our favourite foods still, even though we had thought we were giving them up. A very professional site; keep it coming!
