AFA Teal Room: Cooking with Melissa

April 14, 2022 @ 2:30 pm EDT

Cooking with Melissa

Thursday, April 14, 2022
2:30pm ET
Join Recreational Therapist Melissa Gallagher-Cashman for a virtual cooking class!
Melissa will show you how heart-healthy ingredients can be both delicious and easy to make!
In this video, Melissa will talk about the origin of “brunch,” different brunch foods, the history of scones, and how they became popular at brunch. While we cook, we will practice mindfulness, heighten our senses, and recall memories. Grab your measuring spoons and spatulas, and join us for “Cooking with Melissa.”
