Winter Cooking Camp is OPEN

We are so very excited to be back in the kitchen with our students!

During our winter session, we will travel across the USA and explore regional cuisine. We’ll cook and bake some local favorites such as Cheesesteak from Pennsylvania, Boston Cream Cupcakes from Massachusetts, Chili from Texas, Key Lime Pie from Florida, Avocado Toast from California and even Chocolate Haupia Cream Pie from Hawaii! Students work in teams to prep, cook and bake while exploring the food and culture of a different USA region each week.

This is a five week session and each class is two hours. Classes will be held on Saturday mornings, 10-12pm here in Monroe. See the registration form for additional details. Please keep in mind that ALL Of our classes are NUT FREE.

Let’s keep cooking delicious meals together!

Misfits Market Box

If you haven’t heard about Misfits Market yet, you are going to LOVE hearing about it now. This is a new on-line produce subscription business that sells organic fruits and vegetables from local farmers right to your door. Amazing!

Their goal is to support local farmers, prevent food waste, and help save our environment by selling food that would otherwise go to waste. You can learn more about them by visiting Misfits Market.

We received our first box yesterday and the variety and quality of the produce was exceptional. All organic. All fresh. We choose the Mischief Box which is only $20 per box. Delivered right to our door.

My son, Benny who is only 4 years old, couldn’t wait to get his hands on these grape tomatoes. He didn’t even wait for me to wash them! We are looking forward to getting our weekly shipments and since we don’t know what’s in the box, we are anticipating the surprise!

If you are interested in giving it a try, use this link to get 25%-30% off your first order: Please note that I was not asked or paid to discuss Misfits with you but thought it was such a great bargain and company, that I had to share it with you.

Happy Eating!

Elderberry Syrup

What is a natural and delicious way to avoid the flu and colds this winter? Elderberry Syrup!

Did you know that elderberries help boost your immune system and are packed with antioxidants. They are also high in vitamin C, fiber, rich in anthocyanins and much more! They can help prevent getting a cold or flu or shorten its length if you already have it. Definitely worth having this powerful berries during the winter season!

You can buy Elderberry Syrup online or at your local pharmacy, but it is so very easy to make at home and much less expensive. These make great gifts for family too. Plus, you can alter this recipe to suit your needs. If you prefer the syrup less sweet, add less honey. I made these as gift for my family and they all loved it.

I purchased cute glass jars and the organic elderberries on Amazon. Be sure to store your syrup in a glass jar in the refrigerator. Adults, take one tablespoon per day and Children, take one teaspoon per day. Your kids will love it, its very yummy! Hope it helps keep you feeling well this winter! Try making your own homemade Elderberry Syrup today.
