Taste of Home

When my children were still living at home and I did lots of cooking, I used to subscribe to the Taste of Home magazine. I LOVED it!

So when Carolyn Dewey suggested that we go to the Taste of Home Cooking School that had come to the area, I was excited to do just that! Last night several from my ladies' Bible study went. We arrived early so we could go around and visit all the booths.

Got a nice sampling of lipstick...
Got to taste wonderful cupcakes! and chocolates!

and for me the best was that I got a wonderful back massage!! (sorry, no picture of that)

We all got Walmart bags with goodies (coupons, wooden spoons, magazines, etc.)

What an entertaining and educational evening learning cooking hints and seeing the culinary specialist make all kinds of wonderful foods - pumpkin whoopie pies, agave chocolate cake, roast pork tenderloin sliders, groundnut stew, Chex pb and chocolate blast...

We were given lots of hints - like "never refrigerate tomotoes or sweet potatoes".

They gave away tons of prizes! All the food made was given away along with the pretty dishes they were served on. Lots of cookbooks were given as prizes. There were appliances given away. Even a tv and an overnight stay in KC. We were disappointed that no one in our group got one. We will have to go back next year and try again!

In the meantime, well, we shall try our hand at making these wonderful new recipes!
