Lentil Love and the Legendary Lentil Cookoff

I’m off to Lentil Fest! Please send prayers/thoughts/good vibes our way this week as the Mom half of Apron Strings (Donna!) competes in Pullman, Washington on Saturday in the National Legendary Lentil Cook-Off.

I will be competing as one of the five finalists with my Lentil Carrot Cake – stayed tuned next week for the recipe, to be posted after the contest, win lose or draw!

And so, to get us in the lentil mood, we are posting some of our favorite Lentil Love. Enjoy! And Wish me luck!
