Hello Summer! I’m so glad you are here.
The past few summers have been truly magical and I believe this one will be no exception. In fact, we’ve already started celebrating. The kids started summer vacation last week and since then we have been filling our days with bike riding, beach playing, slip n sliding, and ice cream eating. Yes, we have been eating way too much strawberry ice cream.
One of the other things I absolutely LOVE about summer is all the outdoor cooking. I will be the first to tell you that vegans love to BBQ. There is nothing quite like a grilled and blackened tofu steak. So good!
