Cookie baking class

Last year I took a baking and ingredients class online through AIB.  It was filled with great information and I made an A on the couse.
They offer many valuable online courses that aid one in the baking process. There is a cookie baking class that I would like to take. I have wanted to take it for some time...since I took the last class, actually. 

But,  then life happened.  I took a new job that not only manipulated much of my days, but stressed me out to the point that when I got home in the evenings my brain was fried and I was exhausted.  Shortly after that, I got pregnant!  I found myself on partial bed rest...One would think that would be an opportune time to take a class, but it wasn't :(

Now, the baby is here and I'm working part time. Maybe now I can make it work! 

Although my husband has gone back to school and works full time, I'm hoping to be able to create a schedule that allows me to take this class.  It will only benefit my baking business: Tastenc.com.  You can find me and like my page on Facebook! 

I say all of that to say. .. don't give up on your dreams. It's all in the timing. :)

Back to school recipes

It is that time of the year again...back to school and the entrance of cooler, breezy, clean and crisp weather!  Some children have already started back to school and some are getting ready to start.
Some children eat breakfast and lunch AT school, while others eat breakfast at home and bring a lunch to school with them. Either way, you will find some helpful tips for lunches and after school snacks in this post :)


Snack options:
Easy banana bread



Instead of buying prepared muffins, make your own. You can either make them from scratch (basic muffin recipe) or buy a bag of muffin mix from the grocery store that will cost less than $1.00 (you will get 6 regular sized muffins or 12 mini muffins from this bag).
Place 1 regular sized muffin or 3 minis in a zip top, plastic bag or a plastic storage container and send your child to school with something homemade with love or store in an air tight container at home for an after school snack.
Try these other snack options as well:

Happy back to schooling!
