Miss Liz was LIVE on WTNH today!

It was another great morning with the crew at WTNH Good Morning Connecticut. I feel blessed to share my love and passion for healthy cooking with all of Connecticut!

 

Today, we cooked Asian Style Turkey Lettuce Wraps. Simple, Healthy, Delicious and such a Quick Meal. Hope you’ll make it at home soon.

Our summer camp is always so much fun and such a great experience for the kids, we thought we’d offer a winter session as well. Below is some information on our camp:

With this cold weather outside, wouldn’t you rather be inside the kitchen with Miss Liz, where we’ll cook and bake warm, healthy and comforting meals and sweet treats. We’ll make hearty soups and stews, lasagna, muffins, cookies and more!

Each week, this hands-on class will teach students the skills necessary to make these wholesome, savory meals. They will learn about nutrition, healthy eating habits and how to work in a team! Students will receive their own cookbook with all of these delicious recipes at the end of the session.

Reserve your spot ASAP as classes fill up very quickly. Our max for each session will be 15 students, ages 7+.

Dates/Time: there will be TWO sessions: Friday evenings (3/16, 3/23, 3/30 and 4/6) 6-8pm OR Saturday afternoons (3/17, 3/24, 3/31 and 4/7) 3-5pm

Cost: $175 per child (sibling discount, $175 for first child, $150 for each additional child)

Looking forward to another fun camp!

 

 

 

Brie and Jam Phyllo Bites, a super simple appetizer

We hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving Holiday with their families. It’s a time to remember and appreciate all of our blessings.

My family celebrated our time together with a delicious meal, fun family games, conversations and some cuddling time on the sofa. Of course, there was also some football watching for the men, while the ladies just chatted.

We didn’t host but prepared some treats to share with the family. I made these simple, delicious Brie & Jam Phyllo Bites as an appetizer, along with Butternut Squash Lasagna, Gluten Free Stuffing and Mini Pecan Tarts. Plus, all the food that my family made, it was a table full of goodies.

The Brie & Jam Phyllo Bites were so easy to make and perfect for the holiday season. Just three simple ingredients and into the oven. I used these Fillo Shells from my local supermarket.

A little bit of salty from the cheese and the sweet from the jam in a flaky, buttery phyllo shell. Perfection! You’ll want to add this simple appetizer to your next event!

I am thankful to all of my followers on this blog, to all of my students that make teaching so much fun and to all the parents for giving me the opportunity to show your children how easy and fun it is to cook nutritious and delicious meals together!
