Spring is here! Stunning tulips in the Boston Public Gardens.  
Extras, extras!  The May issue of The Friedman Sprout is hot off the press!  This is the final issue for spring semester, and I'm sad that this rewarding experience is ending.  Here's my final article:

Texture is the first reason I became a vegetarian. Thanks for the links. I hope to find some quiet time to check them out this weekend.

Hope you have a great day!
