Here You may PRE-Order THIS SPIRALIZER @ $40 (already includes tax)
 

THIS IS NOT A CLASS

THIS IS THE PLACE YOU CAN PRE-ORDER  A SPIRALIZER IF YOU CHOOSE

We will be using spiralizers a bit in the upcoming Pesto/Garden to Table Workshop

 

For those of you who have yet to own a Spiralizer,  this is one that I highly recommend, and one that I use frequently.

I am able to order these by the case, and can save you a few bucks on your purchase.

I'm charging a bit less than the lowest price I could find on Amazon--and just a few dollars over my cost.

PADERNO is a company I have purchased from before and they are considered the Industry Standard for this style of Spiralizer.

Ordering is the best way to guarantee you will have one.  If I sell all of these, I will quickly order another case in time for our workshops.

This is the upgraded/updated 4 BLADE model.  It is sturdier and better designed that the original 3 Blade model.  It now has collapseability for handier storage, plus an Angel Hair blade (2mm) which is my favorite feature, and not included in previous models. 

The cost to you is broken down as follows.....  $37.60 + $2.40 (tax) = $40.00

Purchase in advance and yours will be here waiting for you when you come to this fun, hands-on Spiralizing Workshop!

Thanksgiving Gets an UPGRADE:Five FANTASTIC Dishes to Serve with your Bird!
 

THANKSGIVING MAKEOVER:  Greens - Grains and Roots Take Center Stage!

This has been such a popular theme for the past couple of years, I've decided to feature an all new Thanksgiving Makeover Class

This is my favorite Holiday.  And each year, my challenge is the same....to Wow my family and friends with how delicious and divine each dish can taste without opening a single box or can.

All made from scratch, these amazing and colorful dishes of Roots, Grains, Vegetables, Greens and Fruit take the Center of the Plate....alongside our wonderful, local and humanely raised Turkey.

 

The menu for this class will cover everything but the bird.

The details TBA (all new - and differerent from years past)

The Original Ankeny Mudslide Pie - Secrets Revealed - $68--Take Home a MUDSLIDE PIE
 

This Year's Annual Holiday Baking Marathon takes a huge turn.


The Original and Infamous Ankeny Mudslide Pie

   

The older I get, the less secrets I have.  So why not?

This recipe won BEST OF SHOW in the FIRST ANNUAL ART IN THE PARK "Night Before" Celebration in 1993, named for the recent Great Flood of 1993, from which we were all reeling.  (and later nicknamed "The Moaner" by a regular partaker of the infamous pie.

It was Invitation Only, and as a newcomer to the food scene, it was a great thrill to have been included amongst Des Moines Best Restaurants.

For the uninitiated, The Ankeny Mudslide Pie is a confection of melt in your mouth truffle-fudge filling, topped with gooey caramel and glazed with dark chocolate ganache.  For over 20 years, it was sold to happy chocoholics and Mudslide Pie lovers continuously...from the kitchen of Cappuccinos, and later from my little business called Just Desserts, then The Little Blue House, and then Wooden Spoons Workshops....right up until I moved the Workshop kitchen into my home.

No longer baking and peddling The Ankeny Mudslide Pie, I decided the next best thing (or maybe even better) is to teach you how to make it yourself!  (ya know...teach a man to fish, etc...)

 

Details are not yet complete for the structure of the class.  Allow 2 1/2 hours to learn the pie from begining to end.  While some hands on learning will be possible, this pie will most likely be taught largely by demonstration, in step by step, detail by detail format.  You wll take home a pie, detailed instructions and all secrets revealed!

THIRD ANNUAL All Guys Cooking Class!--Teaching the Men to ROCK the Kitchen
 

THIRD ANNUAL GUYS ONLY COOKING CLASS- Back by Popular Demand!

Lend me your men for a few short hours and I promise the gift will return to you a hundred fold!

Single men...sign yourself up for a cooking class you'll not regret!!  All guys are welcome!!


About the Menu:

Almost 25 years ago, we opened our first restaurant (Cappuccino's) on Ankeny's NW side of town. 

One evening, after savoring every last morsel of his meal, a very happy diner exclaimed "THIS WAS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER PUT IN MY MOUTH!"

I've never forgotten those kind words, nor the gentleman who spoke them.  And, I most certainly have not forgotten that dish!  It was one of the all time favorites in the rotating menu at Cappuccinos: 

Mostaciolli y Quattro Formaggio (aka: Definitely not your Mama's Mac and Cheese!)                                    This dish is super impressive, and perfect for a date night with someone you love.  (I would even call this marriage proposal material, but that's not especially PC these days, so fuggetabouttit!)

And for those who'd enjoy the option, How about Lobster Mac?

Deb's Italian Meatballs in Red Sauce (the ultimate red sauce, simple, delicious and extra special!)

Grilled Baby Gem Lettuce with Whole Lemon Vinaigrette-  (I could just park it right here!)

Roasted Cherry Sorbet 

Grownup Hot Chocolate from scratch


There is so much more I could say here....and there will be more coming. But I'm really, really excited to teach the guys these dishes.  They'll love them and You'll Love them!
