Olive Garden uses the tagline, when you’re here, you’re family. This sentiment isn’t new when it comes to countless family tables across the globe. Family meals are a reflection of culture, traditions, and love on a plate.
According to Ecclesiastes”The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” Most of us are aware of the paraphrased version of this quote as; “there’s nothing new under the sun.”
While this saying rings true, there are certain things that a more prevalent now than they once were. More people are embracing vegetarian and vegan diets. Some have issues with food allergies to gluten or have Celiac disease. Diabetes and hypertension also require changes in diet. This leaves the cook to deal with how to make sure everyone is happy.
While it’s easy to make a plate of vegetables and maybe a fruit salad, family members and friends should feel special when sitting down to eat. A faux Philly Cheesesteak with vegan cheddar cheese, says I love with a warm and cheesy sauce.
Cooking with my Nanas contains recipes with the adaptations built-in. Instead of numerous cookbooks, it allows you to follow the recipe and adapt it to fit your meal.
There’s nothing like old-fashioned macaroni and cheese, and our recipe helps to make one that’s perfect for someone with gluten issues or a sensitivity to dairy milk.
