Kids Can Cook: Mother's Day Class Success!

Thanks to my young chefs: Cam, Malik, Shay and the two young ladies who joined us to cook for their moms during the Life Chef KIDS CAN COOK class. You guys did a fantastic job and I hope you make some wonderful meals for mom next week on Mothers Day, so that she can enjoy her day ... and don't forget to clean as you go!

The young chefs prepared a healthful breakfast, lunch and dinner and even made an old favorite snack healthier as an elegant dessert for mom.

Here's the menu:
Multigrain toaster waffles with honey-glazed bananas and almonds
Individual turkey bacon and spinach quiches with swiss cheese
Crunchy baked chicken tenders with broiled cheesy-tomatoes and oven-crisped sweet potato fries
Baked tilapia pakets with Asian vegetable medley and brown rice
Chocolate or Vanilla Pudding and Berry Parfait

I'll make sure the recipes all get uploaded with links in the next couple of days!

Be sure to check out our next Life Chef Class at Saint Philip AME on June 7 from 10 a.m. to noon.
We'll be returning to the theme Food as Medicine in honor of Men's Health Awareness Month and of course, Fathers Day. The menu will include food items that science and medicine have confirmed or are researching to prevent or reverse some of the most common ailemnts afflicting Americans today: diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease, obesity and cancer. The class is $10 per person, $5 for seniors (over 55). And as always the food promises to be delicious! See you then!
