Boy oh boy have I got a killer good class for you all! A perfect menu for barbecuing all summer long! Although to be real… I’ve been making and eating these since winter. Pizza… especially grilled pizza is my all time favorite! Throw in a delicious salad and amazing dessert and I am in hog heaven!

I will be teaching my Grilled Roasted Broccolini and Sausage Pizza. This one is my hubby’s new favorite! So many flavors hit you.. it’s like a party in your mouth! Next is my Grilled Ricotta Pizza… so cheesy, garlicky, creamy and just so dang good! A huge crowd pleaser. And last but not least is my Grilled Burrata and Cherries pizza. This one will win you over with the first bite! So perfect for those hot summer days and nights. I take some of the same ingredients and add some new ones too and convert them to an amazing salad. Another winner in the salad department! And for dessert… oh my… you will just flip over this one! These shortcake biscuits I developed are so addictingly good… I end up eating a few before I actually make one up for dessert! I know you will make this dessert over and over and over again. So dang delicious and easy to put together for any crowd!

So there you have it! And to top it off… it’s a grilling class so it makes for the perfect couples class… aka “date night”! We will even eat outside in the dreamiest setting… it just doesn’t get much better than that!

As for dates… I couldn’t decide to teach this on Thursday, June 9th or Saturday (the perfect date night), June 11th.. both at 5:30 pm. So I will offer both dates… as long as they both fill up. Friday, the 10th sold out before I could post about it. I figure I’ll go out with Summer coming with a bang!

Don’t delay if you are interested in this class… they sell out fast! I will be traveling before this class so you need to email me at jennyleeevans@gmail.com if you want a spot. I won’t be able to check in on my site often so that’s why I ask you to email me.

I am looking forward to some epic pizza classes with you all….  Let the good times roll!

XOXO,

Jenny

Hello Friends,

I’ve done it again… another amazing roast chicken that is amazing and unlike any other chicken dish I have taught before. I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love a chicken dish that is so good that I want to eat it every day! We all have eaten bland, unexciting chicken time and time again… no more people! In fact, this whole menu takes the boring out of chicken, carrots, brussels sprouts, soup and cake! I’ve got some new and delicious takes on them… because food is to be enjoyed… literally every bite… not just eaten to check off the hunger box. Are you with me?!

The side dishes in my next menu are so good, they compete with the star of the show… the roast chicken! I also can’t stop making them and my family is not complaining… not one bit. I am so excited to share these out of this world delicious recipes with you!

Here’s what’s on my next menu: Butter and Herbs Roast Chicken, Carrots with Goat Cheese and Gremolata (think… Italian chimichurri), Cream of Mushroom Soup (this one is so good, it will make any hater of this soup an absolute lover!), Brussels Sprouts with Farro (one of my all time favorite grains) and for the delicious finish… a moist Orange Olive Oil Cake with an Orange Glaze.

I will not be teaching a class in April, so this is the last one until May. I will be teaching this fabulous meal on Thursday, March 31st at 5:30 pm.  Classes sell out quickly so email me ASAP if you want a spot. I do require payment to hold your spot.

My limit for each class is 18 people. I first demonstrate how to make all the dishes and then we feast! So come hungry! The cost of each class is $70.00 per person.

Hello Friends,

You know the rare times you have an “epic” meal experience? I mean…. so good that you can’t stop thinking about it? When that happens to me, I can’t wait to get in my kitchen to re-create the dishes so I can experience them over and over again. And now, it is time for me to share these dreamy dishes with you!

One of the dishes is a freshly made spaghetti with a tomato sauce that is so good that it’s perplexing. How can a tomato sauce be that good??? Trust me, it just is. It is not your regular run of the mill tomato sauce. Literally the best spaghetti I have ever had in my life! And nothing beats fresh pasta… nothing.

This menu is something you and your family will want on a weekly rotation! I also love serving this menu for dinner parties. Always such a pleaser and oh so satisfying!

Here is whats on my “favorite Italian meal re-creation” menu next month:

Fresh Spaghetti, The Dreamiest Tomato Sauce, Stromboli, Lemon Blueberry Salad with a Lemon Honey Vinaigrette and Cheesecake Parfait with a Cherry Compote.

The date for my next class will be Thursday, March 3rd at 5:30 pm. Classes sell out quickly so email me ASAP if you want a spot. I do require payment to hold your spot.

Hello Friends,

I have another “EPIC” menu for you all that I am so excited to teach! I have been working on making the most tender meatballs for years it seems… and have I ever achieved exactly what I was reaching for.  A perfect meatball is one of the most delicious things ever in my book. All the time and effort paid off… and it’s time to share the goodness with you! Actually… most of the items in this menu are the result of many trial and error tests of reaching the perfect (fill in the blank from this menu). And I am proud to say they are all ready to make their tasty debut! It’s all worth it because to me… good food just makes you all sorts of happy! And I know you are going to fall hard for each of these dishes!

After taking the month off… this is the perfect menu to gather for. Here’s what we’ll be cooking: The Most Tender, Cheese Filled Meatballs in a Tomato Sauce, Cheesy Polenta, Arugula, Fennel, Citrus Salad with a Raspberry Vinaigrette, Brazilian Cheese Rolls (addicting I tell you!) and for the perfect finish… Chocolate Souffles with a Vanilla Bean Sauce and Chocolate Ganache. I sure did have many dinner parties where I served many of these dishes and boy were they a hit! So were the meatball sandwiches I made with the leftovers… best sandwiches ever!

The date for my next class will be Friday, February 5th at 5:30 pm.

My limit for each class is 18 people. I first demonstrate how to make all the dishes and then we feast! So come hungry! The cost of each class is $70.00 per person. Let me know if you are interested and I will contact you with more information about the class and tentatively put your name on the reservation list. When I receive your check, I will reserve your spot (31801 Via Perdiz, Coto de Caza, CA 92679, Checks made payable to Jenny Evans).

Hello Friends,

I am so excited to teach you this menu….It may possibly be one of my all time favorite menus ever! First of all… I love Fall food. It’s the season of all things delicious and comforting! But with the exception of the cake, this menu is has a healthy twist to it. Double bonus… right?

The Pork Tenderloin has been on our Sunday Dinner Menu for over a month now because we just can’t get enough of it! Yup… every single week…And that people, never happens! No matter how good a dish or dessert is, I eventually tire of it but not this dish. I have to make sure to make extra so we can eat the leftovers for days after ward to get us through…. until it’s Sunday again. Crazy… crazy good! I seriously could write a paragraph about each dish on this menu and why it is a favorite but I don’t want to write a novel here. You’re just going to have to trust me on this one… you don’t want to miss this class! It’s the perfect menu for family dinners or special gatherings. Just like a versatile beautiful dress… that can be dressed up or dressed down. Got to love that!

Ok so let’s get to the menu: Cheesy Cauliflower Toast (wows everyone with the first bite!), Chopped Kale Salad (Even a Kale hater will love this one!), Sweet Honey Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin (Pretty much just melts in your mouth), Sweet Potato Bake (So many amazing flavors in one dish!) and my favorite cake in the whole world… Caramel Almond Layered Cake (No words good enough to describe how good this is!).

There you have it! Is your mouth watering yet? You just don’t get much better than this offering! This menu will be taught on Thursday, November 12th at 5:30 pm.

My limit for each class is 18 people. I first demonstrate how to make all the dishes and then we feast! So come hungry! The cost of each class is $70.00 per person.  *Please note the price change. (Some might be wondering why the price increase. For those of you that have attended my classes… you know that one of the many things that set me apart from other places that teach cooking classes are… I do not feed you a small sample of what you are learning. Instead you get a full blown meal plus hours of instruction. I need cover my costs…. as much as I would love to keep my prices the same or lower.) Let me know if you are interested and I will contact you with more information about the class and tentatively put your name on the reservation list. When I receive your check, I will reserve your spot (31801 Via Perdiz, Coto de Caza, CA 92679, Checks made payable to Jenny Evans). Or feel free to call me (949-533-4038) to pay by credit card.

Crustless Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Pinterest

IMG_5293Before you go all ballistic on me for posting a “crustless” pumpkin pie… You need to understand the “why”. Call me weird.. I love pumpkin pie but never eat the crust. I scrape off the top and leave the crust on the plate. I don’t know why I love just the creamy pumpkin part. I literally feel like the crust gets in the way of the pumpkin part of the pie experience. I love the crust with any other pie… just not with pumpkin pie. Is there anyone else out there that feels the same? Anyone?

So anyhow… one day I decided to bake a pumpkin pie without the crust to see what the result would be. Oh my… it was pumpkin pie nirvana! Jenny’s perfect pumpkin pie! Truth be told… my family thinks I am nuts and wants me to bake it with the crust. “Why in the world would you bake it without the crust?” “That’s just wrong.” Oh well…. more pie for me.. that I obviously don’t have to share! Makes this pumpkin pie even more perfect! And practically healthy… right? But for you crust lovers out there… the good news is this recipe works just as good baked in a crust as it does crustless. So calm down….. but I bet I can eat two slices “crustless” for your one “with the crust” slice. And I have to admit… I do… every time.

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

3/4 c. fresh pumpkin puree

1/2 c. coconut sugar (available at Trader Joes)

3 large eggs

1 c. evaporated milk

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp. ground ginger

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

½ tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. allspice

Preheat oven to 350 F. Blend all the ingredients until well combined. Pour into a greased pie tin. Bake for 50 minutes, or until set.

Makes one pie

* This recipe is for fresh pumpkin puree only. The canned variety is more solid and has less liquid in it. If you want to make this with the canned puree from the store, use the whole 15 oz. can, 2 eggs and the whole 12 oz. can of evaporated milk. Bake for 45-50 minutes.
