This year seems to be going by so fast. I can’t believe that it is almost Memorial Day- the unofficial start to Summer. This Summer I am looking forward to picnics, potlucks, strawberry picking, outdoor farmer’s markets, and weekends spent at Lake Michigan. What are you looking forward to most this Summer?
In the spirit of Memorial Day, I’m sharing some of my favorite recipes that would be perfect for Memorial Day. I’ve included a wide range of crowd-pleasing vegan recipes that everyone will love.
