Do you remember those mini, powdered doughnuts that you could get from the bakery of the grocery store? Maybe they still carry these - I don't know, honestly. I haven't had them since I was a kid. They really aren't the healthiest - loaded with gluten, refined sugars, processed oils and other preservatives to keep them shelf-stable.

This is by far one of my favourite vegan mac & cheese recipes and perfect for this time of year! It's more of an adult mac & cheese - certainly a healthier version BUT still a major hit with the kiddies if you're looking for a family meal.Read More
