Have you all heard of the organization Operation Underground Rrailroad? My husband and I had the opportunity to attend one of their charity galas in August where I donated a private cooking class for a silent auction item. I personally know Tim Ballard, the founder of this amazing organization. They rescue children that are sold for sex slavery. Can you even imagine? Me either. 


This guy here, Jeff bought the class and brought his company for a night of fun and team bonding. He is also a major supporter for this great organization. 


What a great and fun group of people! It was one of those nights that I too thoroughly enjoyed.


We made a stuffed flank steak that was utterly delicious!


I also taught my potato mushroom side dish that is one of my absolute favorites ever! 


These babies are cheese stuffed and topped rolls. Ya.. pretty much heaven in a roll.


This is the perfect fall salad! My roasted squash and fig salad. It is too good for words!


You know I wouldn’t leave out dessert! We finished the meal with the most delicious, light and fluffy cheesecake with a berry topping. 


Did I mention the stuffed flank steak is served with an amazing and savory marinara sauce? A perfect match, wouldn’t you agree?


Eating good food is always a good time!


The finished product. I told you… the best!


Passing around the goodness!
