A Labor Day Summer Round-Up: Vegan cooking school, travel eats, gardening and blogging conferences

If you’re in the U.S., happy long weekend! Today I thought I would simply provide you a round-up of summer highlights.  Tomorrow feels like “back to school” day and I don’t have kids and I’m not taking classes this term. But my summer of fun is coming to an end. I prepped lots of food for the week (two bean dishes, two mixed grain dishes and chopped up my fresh veggies) and I’m ready!

As we move into fall, here’s a look back on the summer.

1. I planted my first urban bistro garden.

2. I took a 3-Day Cooing Intensive with Christina Pirello in Philadelphia in June.

It was a wonderful Summer.  Fall, I am ready for you.
