Class Descriptions

          5 Ingredients or Less
For those of you that hate to shop and/or cook, have little time, but realize a box of processed food is probably not the best way to go. We will limit these dishes to as few items as possible. Make prepping, measuring and planning as simple as we can and still deliver delicious, healthier foods.
Asian Cooking

 Pretty broad strokes on the menu for this one but, for instance, Stir fry, Fried Rice, Won Tons, Generals Tao's chicken, Japanese Tempura, Spring Rolls, Ming's Master Sauce and some oriental noodles. We won't restrict ourselves to a set menu but you can bet some of your favorites from the Chinese Buffet will be there.    



Basic Bread baking, soft pretzels, cookies, cinnamon rolls. I spent a week baking with Karen Guse of Wild Mountain Bakery at her new bakery in Kentucky. I want to share those recipes with you since we can’t get her products here anymore. She had a Bakery on High Street in Morgantown for a few years but they had to move and we miss her. So I guess we’ll have to make it ourselves, come on out and let’s do this! This class may exceed the 3 hours as dough takes time to rise.
