I’ve been a fan of Kitchen Mouse owner Erica Daking (and her incredible vegan, gluten-free, farmer’s market food) ever since I met her through my good friend Kimberly Muller. So when we decided to plan a vegan-style BBQ to wrap up the season (stay tuned tomorrow for all the delicious details), I was so excited. For our late spring gathering, I wanted a casual get-together with some of my favorite ladies, and it turned out just as I had hoped – a laid-back afternoon of great food and great company that felt like the perfect kick-off to summer.
