I am so excited about this month’s virtual cooking class.  In the spirit of giving, 100% of the registration fees will be donated to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities. RMHC programs help alleviate some financial burdens for families with sick children, saving families over $930 million each year in lodging and meal costs alone. A Ronald McDonald House program helps reduces stress and financial burden for families when they must travel far from home to access medical care for their child. Research shows that patients whose families stayed at the Ronald McDonald House are the sickest, traveled the farthest distances, and spent the longest time in the hospital. Please take a moment to learn more about the impact this organization is making and see if there is a local chapter near you.

Nothing says Christmas like a gorgeous slice of Red Velvet Cake!  This quintessential recipe is oh, so Southern. Remember Steel Magnolia’s? Only our version won’t be in the shape of an armadillo!

If you are not familiar with my School of Gracious Living, I curate opportunities for women to gather virtually in my kitchen without ever having to leave the comfort and safety of their homes. Each class includes 90-minutes of cooking tips, instruction, and hands-on cooking. After you register you will receive an instructional email with the recipe to orient you to the classroom experience and the Zoom access link. At the end of our time together you will have created something spectacular. Ask a friend to join you, or host a group of your girlfriends. Since we meet virtually you can connect with your friend from around the world. You can read more about my School of Gracious Living here.

Red Velvet Cake may look intimidating, but it’s not. And, you will learn how to make the most luscious cream cheese icing to frost your cake. When you are finished you will have a bakery-style cake to keep or give as a gift. People love gifts made with love.

The class is scheduled for Saturday, December 19 at 10:30 a.m. CST.  The registration for the class is $35 of which 100% will be donated to RMHC. What a perfect gift to give to a girlfriend who has everything – the gift of helping families in need. Visit the Cooking School here to register.

I look forward to welcoming you in my home.
