Recipe Wednesday – Spring Rolls With Peanut Sauce by Penni Shelton

I really admire Penni Shelton of Raw Food Rehab, who changed her diet pretty much overnight to raw and has written several books and is currently in real estate with her husband as well as running her Raw food website.  She is my friend on Facebook and I think she is the kindest southern woman who has a lot of attention paid to her not only because of her great business appeal but she has this pretty red hair and beautiful blue eyes to match.
