vegan cheese tip!

so for vegan cheese eaters out there, i know Daiya is super popular! but i have found that bags of Daiya tend to run a little on the pricey side when they’re not on sale (and even then!) and not everyone has the spoons or the time to make their own vegan cheese, so!! 

in comes: trader joe’s vegan mozarella shreds! 

ingredients-wise, it seems pretty similar to Daiya (canola oil, coconut, no soy, etc.) and melts and stretches almost BETTER than Daiya, for at least a dollar or two less and i think the bag generally has a bit more than Daiya shreds. i used them tonight on a frozen veggie pizza from TJ’s and they worked perfectly! as far as storing and the like, the bag does say not to freeze, but after a quick google search, it seems that others have frozen the bags and not had any issues! 

best of luck to you all and enjoy your vegan cheese! :)
NEW Triple Scented Home Sweet Home Tea Soy Wax Tart

External image

This particular scent is called “Home Sweet Home”, and as soon as you pop the container open you will understand why. This is a very warm, spicy scent that has a cinnamon base. Home Sweet Home is the perfect scent for the cooler months. Unlike many soy tarts, this scent isn’t too feminine, and will be at home in a man’s space. If you enjoy Home Sweet Home, (and who doesn’t?), you can also get this scent in a candle.
