Daiya - An awesome cheese alternative!

I have been reading through some recent posts on a variety of blogs and website pages and a particular dairy alternative keeps coming up.  My family, too, has recently discovered them!  We just had them on baked potatoes this past week.

Here is a great alternative for those looking to have some dairy-free  'cheese' on their pizzas, burritos and nachos!
