I know I'm a dork about food but it's so exciting for me to eat something that is so amazingly restorative & energetic. Today is the day that my Excalibur Dehydrator is arriving.....super stoked about it! I can't wait to make this recipe that I learned at  workshop with Linda Frees for
 Blueberry Cookies.
