Dairy-free and Delicious!

I'm really not a fan of soy cheese...or rice cheese for that matter. I don't like the smell, the taste, or the texture. Brody will eat it occasionally, but prefers to just go "cheeseless". Lately I've heard a lot of good comments about a fairly new product. I was hesitant to give it a try though because I'm tired of spending a small fortune on supposedly good-tasting cheese alternatives and then being let down by the taste once we get it home. But for Brody's sake, I'm determined to keep hunting for new food items he will enjoy...especially a great-tasting dairy-free cheese. For us, the hunt is finally over! Daiya dairy-free "cheese" is amazing! It comes in mozarella-style and cheddar-style shreds. This is by far the closest tasting to real cheese that I have ever found in a dairy-free product. So far we have enjoyed Mac-n-"Cheese", "Cheesey" Hashbrowns, Sloppy Lasagna, Pizza, Calzones, and grilled "cheese" sandwiches...and every single recipe was a huge hit with the entire family! Brody now calls Daiya "the good cheese" and asks if he can add some of the shreds on just about everything. Last night he sprinkled "the good cheese" on top of his mashed potatoes. Yum!

Let me know what you think of Daiya shreds if you give it a try!
