Virtual Community Class: Cooking with Melissa

December 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm EST

Cooking with Melissa: Holiday Favorites with A Fun and Healthy Twist – Let’s get in the kitchen and cook something good for our soul and brain health! This two-part series will focus on remembering traditional Thanksgiving favorites and  preparing them with a fun and healthy twist.

Part I: Easy Bake Breakfasts to Delight Your Senses and Warm Your Soul

Part II: Simple and Healthy Appetizers

Part III: Brownie Bites…Casual or Fancy

Part IV: No-Bake Sugar Cookie Bites

Melissa will talk about the health benefits of several of the ingredients in these recipes, how these recipe “makeovers” are still delicious and can keep our holiday traditions. While we cook, we’ll practice mindfulness, heighten our senses and recall past memories. So, grab your measuring spoons and spatulas, and join us for “Cooking with Melissa.”
