My next teaching opportunities will be at a wonderful new store that has opened up in Gardner Village called Lorken
Food Finery. The classes coming up are on roll making and how to use a cast iron skillet. You can sign up by accessing their web site or calling them at 801 938-1982

On Thursday, March 5th I'll be teaching one of my most requested classes, Tricks of the Trade- How to Make Homemade Rolls. We'll discuss everything from how to purchase the right kind of flour to making sure that your yeast actually makes it live into the dough. I'll show you busy cooks how to cut your time in half by using the "micro-rise" method as well as discuss the principles behind freezing your dough for later use. You'll go home with a firm recipe for dinner rolls and a variety of ways to shape them, as well as recipes for cinnamon rolls with cream cheese frosting and orange craisin swirls. You'll find yourself intoxicated with the smell of homemade rolls and plan on tasting everything we make. Your friends, family and coworkers will love you for taking this class!

Thursday, March 12 is a night of learning how to use a basic pan that every complete kitchen should have to be complete, and is why everyone will go home with a skillet as part of the price of the class. The Miracle Pan- Cast Iron Skillet (8 inch pan) is all about learning how to use cast iron. If you haven't tried cooking with cast iron, or if you have and been unsuccessful- here is your chance to begin anew. In this class we will be doing the best scrambled eggs you'll ever have- and in 45 seconds or less, simple omelets, baking traditional corn bread, and making chocolate applesauce snack'n cake. The best part is you will go home with the feeling of confidence that you too can use your pan, take care of it and it will be in your family for several generations. After all, it is The Miracle Pan.

Please feel free to email me (Cristie) at if you have any questions.


  1. Cristie,

    I am looking so forward to taking your class! Your bread, at Gardner Village, was tasty and made the entire place smell like home! Yum! You are an inspiring cook and a joy to be around.

  2. Cristie,
    It was so good to meet you last night at Gardner Village. You are so cute and delightful to be around. I am excited to take your roll class. After failing many, many times at bread making, I am excited to try again!
    I'll see you in a couple weeks!

  3. Cristie, Love your blog! I can't wait to take one of your classes. Heidi
