Class Highlights-Cooking without Power by Chef Tess

Our Arizona readers were lucky enough to attend this class in person.  We figured we'd better share the fun and do some class highlights for everyone else!
Chef Tess is sooo cool that she can bake bread on a grill--seriously mad skills this lady has!

Peanut Butter Pie

Yes please I'll take 2! Sometimes I forget how good pudding is. And sometimes I want to ask for seconds and thirds when it comes to dessert.  And sometimes I am grateful for stretchy waistbands after I eat seconds and thirds of dessert.

Recipe and Class Highlights: Halloween with Shirley J

Becky Olsen from Shirley J came to our Brigham City store to present "Spooky, Sweet, and Savory: Halloween with Shirley J". 

This class explored how Shirley J products can simplify many of your dishes (both in time and number of ingredients needed) without sacrificing flavor.  We tried Black & White Chili, Sourdough Bread Bowls, Sweet Potato Jack-O-Lantern Tartlets, Pumpkin Spice Cake and Black Velvet Cupcakes.  Everything was delicious!

Strawberry-Peach Smoothie

With the Strawberry Milk Alternative Give-away going on, I thought I would share a smoothie recipe using the Strawberry Milk! If you don't already know, we LOVE smoothies in this house! We literally have a smoothie 7-10 times a week-no joke! Yes, it's kind of embarrassing to admit, and yes, we go through 5-6 bananas A DAY, and yes, I LOVE smoothies. But set the embarrassment aside and think about's a pretty healthy snack. All we do is put in fruit, ice, water, and some days a little bit of sugar. So all in all, I am okay with it!

Class Highlights: Using Powdered Eggs and Milk

We've had some great classes at each of our stores and this one was no different.  In September, Cheryl Moore, came to our Brigham City, UT store to share her knowledge about using Powdered Eggs and Powdered Milk. 

Powdered Milk
There are 3 basic types of powdered milk: Non-Instant, Instant, and Milk Alternative.  Our retail stores carry each type (some may be a special order and various sizing available). 

The Milk Substitute (aka Milk Alternative) is a whey based beverage mix and is great for drinking!  I've used it in some of my baking too and have been pleased with the results.  You can't use this to make your own yogurt or cheese.  We also carry the yummy Chocolate Milk Substitute and the new Strawberry Milk Substitute too!
