With the start of a brand new year, I’m always compelled to clean out every closet in the house. There would need to be three of me to truly make this a reality but I can say some progress was made!  Spending time reorganizing my kitchen was well worth the effort.  With all of the dishes, spatulas and ramekins in their new home, I have a fresh resolve to be creative with food again.


Don’t lose YOUR resolve to eat well in 2018 and join me for Wellness in the Kitchen (second date added) or Foods the Secret Fountain of Youth, for delicious recipes that  actually turn back the clock and prevent illness.
Soups, Stews and Breads promises new recipes to enjoy during the winter months, and February is packed with fun like French Macarons, Chocolate and Croissants, oh my!  To see a full class description for the season and to register, CLICK HERE.

About Lorie Fangio

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
