Violife Mozzarella Shreds

On a recent visit to Southern California, I was glad to find these Just Like Mozzarella shreds at a local grocery. While the package says, “Melts great!” this is not entirely true. It melts okay. As you can see in the photo below, we had quite a few semi-melted shreds on our pizza (and this … Read more

Punk Rawk Nacho Cheese
