ZOOM Cooking Class Recipes: Picnic Fare

Sunday, July 18th, 2021

NOTE: Here are plant-based recipes from my most recent cooking class on ZOOM. I put the directions opposite the ingredients, which I believe makes following the recipes easier. What do you think? However, while the directions are lined up correctly on my edited version, when I post it, the lineup is not perfect! Can’t seem to correct the issue.
