Teaching a new generation

Teaching a new generation

Friday night I taught a group of kids, 6th -8th graders, how to make pasta from scratch. It’s one of my joys in life as I have mentioned in my musings here in the past. Like many other classes in the past my eldest son Jake, now eighteen, assisted me. I can’t express the joy … Continue reading

Classes, classes and more classes!

Classes, classes and more classes!

It’s that time of year again when we here in northeast Ohio are looking for indoor activities due to the crazy weather we’ve been experiencing.

Now, moving right along, because that is exactly what I am doing … Continue reading

My television debut!

When I started this blog and my cooking journey, the only goals I had were to learn about the ways my ancestors cooked, more about my heritage and possibly improve my picture-taking skills when it … Continue reading

Spinach and Ricotta Lasagna Roll-ups

This is a vegetarian dish I was testing for my Meatless Meals class at Cool Beans Cafe. It turned out very good although I didn’t get my own picture of my finished dish due to the fact that I took it to a potluck dinner/meeting last night.

The Teacher Goes to Class

The Teacher Goes to Class

Photo Credit: MeganBruce.com When I began this journey to learn traditional and authentic Italian cooking, I truly did not know where it would lead me. For the benefit of my new friends and readers, I will give you a quick timeline. I’ve always enjoyed cooking and creating new dishes for my family. I also came … Continue reading

Why do I teach cooking classes?

I’ve been asking myself this question since I’ve had a rash of classes over the past week. My simple answer is this- I love to cook and I love to teach others how to cook. I get so much joy from watching people learn they can make delicious foods in their own kitchen and it … Continue reading
