Happy November Turnips! 
November is my favorite month of the year! Yes, it is dark, rainy, and cold – but we have Thanksgiving to look forward to!
My big cooking class in November is the Thanksgiving Pie making workshop. I currently have 2 sessions open for kids or families.
The classes are Tuesday, November 25th.
If you are feeling like perking up your Thanksgiving dinner table, sign up for Thanksgiving Sides. This is a fun evening class for adults.
If you are a planner, here are December classes:
I still have a few spots open for private parties in December. I also have aprons and gift certificates available for the holiday season. Interested in either? Email

All this rain is making me even more excited for Sunday’s kid cooking class! We will be making 2 pots of soup, a cheesy, whole wheat quick bread, and some gooey apple blondies.

This is the perfect class for kiddos 8 years old and up. We will be working on developing layers of flavors in a pot of soup, how to make a loaf of quick bread and why browning butter makes apple blondies OH SO TASTY!
