This year has been ONE TOUGH COOKIE. While we might not all get to be together like we hoped for this Christmas...we are going to still celebrate in the best way we know how!
Life is what you BAKE it after all!
Join us on Saturday, December 12 at 5:00pm (CT) via Zoom to enjoy all of our favorite Christmas festivities together (with us and your loved ones) - eating, enjoying a good drink and baking up some cookies and then decorating them!
We will be making:
Charcuterie Tray - I'll show you a simple way to make your board look beautiful and taste great - perfect to snack on while drinking our cocktails and frosting some cookies! Can be made gluten-free and dairy-free.
Holiday Old Fashioned - a Christmas spin on this ol' classic! Mocktail version available.
Oatmeal Rolled Sugar Cookies with Frosting - Delicious, unique, tastier cousin to the sugar cookie. We will cut these out in our favorite Christmas shapes and top them with a creamy frosting and sprinkles. Can be made gluten-free and dairy-free.
Please keep in mind, this is not Holiday Baking Championship and I will not be showing you how to professionally decorate your cookies, it is all just for fun. The cookie recipe is on me, but the decorating is all on you and your family ;) While I will show you how to do some piping, I emphasize that I will NOT be showing you how to do perfectly decorated cookies. This is more of a homestyle, old fashioned type of frosting and decorating - all in good fun with sprinkles galore.
This is a perfect event for a fun date night, a kid-friendly family affair, or just as a way to connect with others! This class will be a little different from the ones in the past since there won't be as much cooking...which means more time for mingling (if you want)!
This class will also come with a Spotify playlist of Christmas songs to get us all in the spirit! Dress festively and be prepared to have fun!
$20 per household. Follow me on Instagram and Facebook for event invites to each cooking class.

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
