According to our teacher, Chief Jessie, the main goal of the first class is for her to understand the skill level of each student. Each of the ten students there that night gave an introduction, including a skill level and why they were there. After slicing a carrot to show Chief Jessie our knife skills, we paired into teams of two to make a dish each. My team made Chicken Wing Appetizers. At the end of the night, we all sat down to enjoy everyone’s dishes.

A Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, and Vegan Yogurt that tastes good? It may be hard to believe, but there is a good option: So Delicious Cultured Coconut Milk Yogurt. While I can have some soy, it is put in so many dairy substitutes that I try to diversify wherever I can. It would be very easy for me to overload, and need to pull soy off my diet long term.

Want a breakfast food that appeals to a broad section of people, while still meeting the needs of those with allergies? This is not as easy as it sounds. Most fancy breakfast dishes have egg as a star ingredient. Potato dishes are often cooked in butter and covered in cheese. Meats, a great source of much needed protein, are often missed in with these dishes. Bread may be an option, but most likely not if you can’t have gluten. That is assuming that the bread is allergy free, and not covered with butter. It leaves one wondering, what’s a girl to do? The answer is simpler than you would think, make a potato and sausage breakfast dish.
