I want to thank everyone who came out to the Mediterranean Cooking Class tonight. I taught a spanakopita class and Pampered Chef Cindy taught a dessert.
Thank you to Cindy for hosting this event and for everyone who made it out. I hope all of my students learned something and I read their comment cards, and everything was positive!! Great turn out and I will be posting the pictures tomorrow to this very blog. 🙂
We will be having more cooking classes, so please stay tuned. Maybe online classes? 🙂

The cooking class was a big hit!! Great job to everyone and can’t wait for the next.
