“Recently, a rain-soaked JL proved to be a real pro at what was to be a cooking demo/throwdown at our farmer’s market. She managed even with the downpour to hand out samples of her awesome Cucumber & Onion Quinoa Salad, smiling every step of the way. Her enthusiasm was infectious and we are looking forward to her return!”
