After a delightful volunteer trip to Costa Rica, I am back and ready to be dry and not wet, do physical exercise instead of manual labor and of course COOK FOR MYSELF!! Although, I loved spending my days feeding monkeys, birds and pigs, I was SOOOOO over cleaning up bird, monkey and pig poop. HEHE!

Some of my favorite toppings are chopped dates, peanuts, almond butter, cookies, granola, craisins and cereal......hmmmm. ...
Without a doubt barbeque is one of the most recognizable flavors in the world. Smoky and sweet with a unique kick to the taste buds.
It sends memories of burgers, picnic tables, pool parties, cook outs racing through peoples heads. In general, barbeque is a reminder of good times with friends or family.
Usually BBQs are full of grilled "meat" and other unhealthy stuff. For us vegans though...we get creative with grilled veggies, fruits, tofu, homemade veggie burgers or even try the new ...
