  1. Another wonderful class, Mimi. Thank you. It is just nice hanging out with like minded people. I made the burgers this week. They were quick for a veggie burger. The adults in the house loved them but the kid turned his nose up at it. I think the spices might have been too much. I will try again and leave the spices out of the kid burger. The chocolate mouse was a hit, of course. Mine wasn’t as creamy as yours. Did you use agave instead of sugar? It seemed like the sugar didn’t dissolve. Today we are stuck at home on a dreary day, time to try the mac and cheese recipe. Stay tuned…

  2. The comfort food class was excellent! My favorite meal was the chicken-free noodle soup. The chocolate mouse would satisfy a chocoholic’s cravings! What I found most helpful was the variety of food items on display as well as the suggestions where to buy them. Mimi is very organized and a great source of information. It was all delightful!

  3. Thanks for another awesome class, Mimi! Phil and I have already made the chicken noodle soup (it was delicious) and are planning to make the mac and cheese dish this week. I was hesitant to try cheese substitutes until I tasted a variety of wonderful choices in the Comfort Food class. I love that Mimi not only shows her students how to prepare and cook the meal, but also gives tips on where to find each item, as well as money savings coupons. Mimi’s assistant Faith is also wonderful, ensuring everyone has an opportunity to savor all of the dishes while leaving Mimi to focus on the cooking and discussion. Whether you are a meat eater or a veggie, I highly recommend this class!

  4. Mimi’s comfort foods made this long winter bearable–and healthy! It’s my first winter moving to a healthier way of cooking and eating and Mimi’s chicken noodle soup, sweet potato fries, chicken-free nuggets, and mac and cheese were hits. Can’t wait to make the chocolate pudding. Wanted to ask for seconds during the class tasting!

  5. The Easy Shepherd’s Pie is Sunday comfort food at its finest! Simple and full of flavor – you will also want to keep the recipe handy for nights when there isn’t enough time to cook a huge meal from scratch and you don’t want to resort to heating up a frozen entree. Treat yourself to this class next time Mimi offers it – you won’t be disappointed!
