    Hi! What is braggs? Soy sauce? Thank you


    1. Jill Dalton says:

      It is called Braggs liquid amino acids. Most grocery stores Cary it now or you can order online. It tastes similar to soy sauce but has 1/10 the Sodium

      I don’t have a recipe yet but we normally chop up mushrooms and onion super small and season like taco meat🤗

    I was just wondering what the purpose of the raisins was in the cheese sauce. Also, would this cheese sauce be good on pasta?


    1. Jill Dalton says:

      The raisins are to give a slight sweetness. I think this sauce tastes good on just about everything. Wait till you taste it. You’ll see🤗
