Making Mom Brunch class

Today I taught the above  named class at Cool Bean Cafe’. I had a small group of mini-chefs but a very well-behaved group. The kids also knew their way around the kitchen and some were rather young. All of them could crack eggs without getting shells in the bowl, they can measure, whisk, pour and make fresh squeezed orange juice.

Since I don’t own the rights to any photos, you will have to visit Cool Beans’ Facebook page and like them to see any pictures from today. But I did promise the recipes and menu.

  1. You probably left an amazing imprint on their hearts today. I remember those kinds of classes in Brownies and Girl Scouts (but not with that yummy menu). Totally Delicious – wish my boys had gone:) Happy Mother’s Day – Italian Style!
