Well friends, a lot of the year has slipped through my fingertips, and I’m missing you people, the chatter in the kitchen and the fun we have together. It’s that nostalgic time of year to dust off the holiday traditions and one of my absolute favorites is teaching Pie Class. Because somewhere along the the way, a lot of people have lost the fine art of a from-scratch pie made lovingly by their own hands – for their loved ones or for themselves. 😉

And to be honest, after last week’s Presidential election, I need some good ol’ pie-making therapy, too. I promise not to bring up politics at Pie Class. I’ll do my best to just work it all out in the dough.

You’ll see there’s a Pie Class open to all THIS Saturday, November 19th at 1 p.m. If you want to attend Saturday’s class, please call 316-990-4493 ASAP with your reservation – number of pie(s), what kind and if you would like to make any extra crusts.

The two other Pie Classes listed are private. Don’t mean to be exclusionary here, however, if ya fill a class, you, too, can have a private one. I’d dance with the thought of maybe one more class in December. And if nobody wants another Pie Class, maybe I’ll get wild and do a Holiday Appetizer class.

I’ve taught here and there over the past 6 months with just one-off classes. Life has gotten in the way and the sitting down and planning gets pushed off. In January, I’ll have classes 2 – 3 times per month. Scaling back a bit from my old schedule of more. My food styling business is going well and those jobs keep me hopping. And I’m still making space for that cookbook I keep referencing.

Whether I see you or not before this Holiday Season, I wish you the best!

Hope everyone had a great summer. I cannot believe it’s the middle of September. I’ve missed your pretty faces in my kitchen. It’s been pretty quiet in the kitchen at least, other than food styling jobs.

If you’re interested in making super delicious, healthy snacks – you cannot miss this class. Heather is uber-talented at making food taste amazing and always being sure it’s very healthy. Love that about her! Class is on September 20th at 6:15 p.m. and it’s $30.

More Fall classes coming soon!

Starting from scratch? Don’t know how to cook at all or just a bit rusty on your skills? Over the years, I’ve had requests for a Cooking 101 series. I decided to give it a go! I’m really looking forward to spending in-depth time with the people that sign up for this series, helping them along the way and watching their kitchen skills & confidence grow.

Cooking 101 6-week Series: Tuesday evenings from May 3rd – June 7th
Come learn:
– How to build a kitchen with necessary equipment & tools
– Safe knife skills & how to sharpen knifes
– How to properly cook: eggs, vegetables, pasta, rice, grains, beans, meat, poultry, seafood, grilling, stocks and soups, salads, quick breads, yeast breads & pizzas, cookies, fruit desserts, pies and custards.

The fee for this class will be $450 with class limited to 6 people and text book included. If you are interested, please contact me at 990-4493. Several spots have already sold, and I’m hoping to wrap up enrollment for this soon.

Let’s gather there and have a spring lunch. A girl can dream while she’s in her office. I was drawn to this image because of the gorgeous, luscious blooms and the cafe chairs. I’ve been lusting after cafe chairs for my kitchen. Add it to my mile long wish list of home decor.

Back on topic! Spring cooking classes are live for your viewing pleasure. You’ll see I’ve packed a lot of them in over the next month. January and February historically have been slower months for classes, however, 2016 has proven that theory wrong. Lots of private classes, many, many new faces and many fun cooking times!

You’ll notice I’ve bumped my Cooking 101 Series to May – June. It’s 6 week series and will be each Tuesday starting on May 3rd and ending on June 7th. If you’d like more information on that, please feel free to call me. You’ll learn how to build a kitchen with necessary equipment, tools, safe knife skills, how to sharpen knifes, how to properly cook: eggs, vegetables, pasta, rice, grains, beans, meat, poultry, seafood, grilling, stocks and soups, salads, quick breads, yeast breads & pizzas, cookies, fruit desserts, pies and custards. The fee for this class will be $450 with class limited to 6 people and text book included. Several spots are already taken, so please don’t miss out on yours! If you are interested, please contact me so I can pencil you in. Payment can be taken care of closer to class start date.

Can’t wait to cook with you!

Wishing you & yours a wonderful Christmas season filled with warm fires, friends and family and of course delicious food! Thank you ALL for a wonderful 2015 year of many classes, lots of new faces & fun culinary adventures!

The January & February 2016 classes are up! I’m very excited to start another round of classes after the holiday craze. I love the winter time for the stillness it brings, and the chance to refocus life and spend time doing things that are important.

In March, I will start a Cooking 101, a 6-class series meeting on Tuesday evenings starting March 1st and ending on April 5th. I’ll teach how to build a kitchen with necessary equipment, tools, safe knife skills, how to sharpen knifes, how to properly cook: eggs, vegetables, pasta, rice, grains, beans, meat, poultry, seafood, grilling, stocks and soups, salads, quick breads, yeast breads & pizzas, cookies, fruit desserts, pies and custards. The fee for this class will be $450 with class limited to 6 people and text book included. If you are interested, please contact me so I can pencil you in. Payment can be taken care of closer to class start date.
