Holiday Cooking Class–Sides!

Posted by

Few words today… just a montage of pictures from my last holiday cooking class. In the last class, we prepared orange vanilla cranberry sauce, stuffing, and candied yams. YUM! This Saturday’s class–holiday desserts–will complete the December series on vegan holiday dishes. Have a great day folks and see you later this week with a holiday shortbread recipe… nom! 😀

  1. What a great meal and so much fun! Congratulations again. 🙂

  2. I love how everybody is all smiles when they aren’t cooking, but when you have them working on the sweet potatoes they are really concentrating. Looks like a delicious meal. I wish I could have cooked with you when you lived in Durham.

  3. Looks like everyone is having a blast! Those candied yams sound rather wonderful, Tiffany!

  4. You seriously couldn’t look any happier in both cooking class posts! I love it, and what you made with your class looks fantastic:-) Hugs, Terra

  5. Agh, I wish I lived near you so I could go to your class! It looks like so much fun and you are always making great food.

  6. Thanks for the comments everyone! 😀
