Retro Mac ‘N Cheese

My Nanie (that’s grandmother for anyone who doesn’t know) made the BEST macaroni and cheese you’ve ever tasted and my favourite dish of all time. It was your classic “this and that” recipe that was so typical of the Depression Era. When I started eating a vegan diet, this was something that I had to give up….until today. Somehow, someway, I’ve been able to mimic her recipe vegan style and the taste is pretty spot on! Very excited to share this recipe with all of you!
