COOOOKIES!

Cookie decorating just for kiddos!  And kids-at-heart welcome too!  We will decorate vegan 'sugar' cookies and have a few other cookies for you to taste or take home that are a little more whole-food and plant-based than sugar cookies.  We had so much fun doing this last year, we thought we would do it again this year!  If you came last year, we will fix the issues we had with bottles not squirting frosting fast enough :)

If your child has an apron, you might want to bring it.

Cozy Cooking Class:  Soups and Breads

 

One of my favorite things about winter cooking is making soups.  Winter is the perfect time to make delicious soups and breads.

We have some no-knead bread recipes that make it doable for anyone, even if you don't have a lot of time. This is a demonstration cooking class and includes dinner. Exact menu will be determined closer to the event (we are having a hard time choosing :) )  We will for sure have a no-knead, whole-grain bread that Sherry will demonstrate!
