Hi Friends!

Have I ever got an amazing yet simple Thanksgiving side dish to share with you today! Ditch that processed, mushy green bean casserole for this fresh, out of this world delicious green bean dish instead. I promise you and your guests will flip over it! I just taught it in my Thanksgiving Feast class and it was a huge favorite among everyone! You can find this recipe over at www.beckiowens.com so head on over there and get this recipe ASAP! You’ll thank me later!

XOXO,

Jenny

Hello Friends,
Oh how I love the holidays and….tis the season for gatherings and lots of sweet treats! If ever there was a time for indulgences… it’s now… this blessed holiday season. Whether you are hosting a party of any sort or bringing a dessert to another gathering… I’ve got you covered with some over the top delicious desserts we’ll be learning how to make! If there’s one thing that is certain… an amazing dessert is a must! Who wants to waste precious calories on “so so” desserts? Not me!
Here’s what I’ve got for my special Desserts Class: Texas Butter Cake with a Salted Caramel Glaze (one bite will win anyone over!), Coconut Raspberry Layer Cake (a favorite over here!), Banana Cream Pie (Flambeed Bananas and a special crust sets this one apart from the rest!) and something chocolate always is a must on any dessert menu… so I’ve got the most delicious German Chocolate Pie!
The dates for this class is Thursday, December 1st at 5:30.

Happy Cooking!

Hello Friends,

It is officially Fall and the holidays are coming! Oh how I love the oncoming holidays…. family, food, festivities and more amazing food! If you are one that is still trying to figure out the best, tastiest, tender turkey with a beautiful crispy and perfectly browned skin…. look no further. I perfected the art of the perfect roasted turkey. And lucky you… I am reteaching this very popular class…. last time I taught this class was three years ago! My perfect, tender and flavorful turkey has converted turkey haters into “I think I will help myself to my fourth serving” lovers! And no… you will not be stuffing this turkey in a plastic bag to roast… plastic and roasting just doesn’t jive with me. This is one turkey you will be proud to serve to any gathering and one that is sure to have others praising your “amazing turkey making” name! Of course I will also teach you the perfect fixings too. A turkey is not perfect without it’s “must have” accompaniments. This year will be a Thanksgiving feast to remember!

Do you struggle with your gravy making skills? How about making mashed potatoes that are beyond amazing? I’ve got you covered! And the pumpkin pie? Have I got the best one EVER for you! (This pumpkin pie was the taster in my class and everyone fell over the top in love with it, just like I suspected!) Seriously, you are going to love this menu! I will teach you how to make the ordinary Thanksgiving feast extraordinary! Look no further for the perfect recipes and techniques…. this is it people. Really…. this is it.

Our perfect Thanksgiving feast will include: The Perfect Roasted Turkey, The Best Ever Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Parker House Rolls, Pumpkin Pie Hawaiian Style (topped with a coconut custard) and the most amazing Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms.

The dates for this class are Thursday & Friday, November 17th & 18th at 5:30.

Anyone is invited to attend, so please feel free to forward this on to your friends, neighbors and family. I hope you can join me for another gathering of delicious food and a fun night!

Happy Cooking!

Best “Homecoming Dance Ask” Video!

Pinterest

img_8448

Hi Friends,

This isn’t about food or travel… but this is seriously the most amazing video.. so I have to share it! Our talented daughter (Hadley) created this video for our son (Weston) to ask his date to their homecoming dance. The best part.. She (Kennidy) is in the video and had no idea what it was for! Her friend (Anika) told her she needed to video Kennidy and some other friends for a class project. When the video was ready to go, Weston asked Kennidy and a group of friends over to watch a “movie” and the rest is history… and yes… she said “yes”! I promise this will put a huge smile on your face! Check it out HERE.

All New Grilled Pizzas Class!

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
