First Cooking Class

We just had our first cooking class today! What a wonderful time we had!

I didn't think to take pictures, but next month I will! So here is your warning!

We started by making sugar-free jelly. It was easy, but ended up as grape syrup instead. I would have liked it to set better, but have discovered that the sugar-free pectin can be temperamental.

Then we ground soft wheat berries into flour. We made a tortilla mix and added water. We rolled out tortillas and cooked them in a non-stick skillet. Yum! We had green salad, refried beans, taco filling, black bean salad, and pickles to go with our tortillas.

After lunch, we stepped back into the kitchen for chocolate milkshakes! We made one batch with carob powder and one with dark chocolate. We used stevia as our sweetener.

We all seemed to have a great time and learned a lot.

Next class will be October 28 at 10:00. We will be making fish sticks from tuna (these are amazingly good!), goodie balls for desert, and veggie salt mix as a take-home goodie. Stay tuned for the November class.

Wow! I wish I was local so I could come to your cooking class. Sounds wonderful!

I've added this blog to my sidebar on my fitness blog. Is that OK?
