What if I told you… no one gives a fuck that youโ€™re vegan

Oh yum! I like the base of this one, tired of cashew cheeses. Thank ya love! xx

Nutritional yeast has such a strong flavor. I add 2 tablespoons to make a mac and cheese sauce and it's so strong. Does anyone find different brands taste better/worst?

To make nacho cheese and beans more spicy, my mom puts the jalapeรฑos in the beans and sauce when she's heating them up! Give it's a smokey flavor too! ๐Ÿ™‚ love it

Hi Nikki! Looks delicious! I unfortunately have a tree but allergy. Do you have a recommendation for an alternative to the cashew butter?

Is it 1/2 Tbsp or 1 Tsp of cornstarch? When filming you say 1 tsp, directions say 1/2 Tbsp.
