Simple & Delicious: Smoothies, Healthy Snacks & Dessert Cooking Class
May 22, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm| $10
Want to spice up your cooking routine? Parents, beginners in the kitchen and established cooks who are looking to expand their taste buds are all invited to Simple & Delicious, a new series of cooking classes that focus on simple, healthy and inexpensive recipes. The classes will take place on Thursdays, March 20, April 24 and May 22, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Picker Family Resource Center and are co-taught by cooking enthusiasts Donna Ames, Wendelanne Augunas and Linda Zeigler. Attend one or all three sessions.
The first session is “Play With Your Food: Exploring Flavors.” In this class students will use their individual flavor preferences to make their own guacamole, hummus, salsa and oven-baked tortilla chips and learn how a few simple changes in preparation can make food taste better and cost less.
Additional sessions include “Eggs Aren’t Just For Breakfast” on April 24 and “Smoothies, Healthy Snacks & Desserts” on May 22. Classes will cover new ideas and recipes for healthy meals, how to prepare healthy snacks and how to make favorite recipes healthier.
Cost for each class is $10. Space is limited; registration is required. Call 596-8950 to register or for more information.
Simple & Delicious is co-sponsored by the Picker Family Resource Center and the Zing! program.
Zing! is a positive, encouraging program that helps children and their families learn healthy habits. Donna Ames works with children ages 6 to18 who have been referred by their doctor’s office because of weight and health concerns.
