Another recipe I made using Grands Biscuits were waffles. I covered them with the leftover cinnamon and sugar mixture from the Monkey bread I made. Then I cooked them in my waffle maker.

CassClayAlive is hosting a free event on Monday, May 18 at 6:30 pm on ways to get your children more active throughout their daily lives. The event will be held at the Dakota Medical Foundation building at 4141 28th Ave S, Fargo. As the photo above shows, a brain is more active when the body has been active.

Free tickets can be reserved here.

Following is more on the event.
Regular physical activity is important for everyone. We know it’s beneficial for physical health, but physical activity also improves brain function, learning, attentiveness, behavior and more.

Come learn how to effectively weave movement into children’s daily lives – no matter the space or time available – to activate their brains and improve learning!

I tried a recipe for Bubble Up Pizza using the Grands biscuits I purchased recently.

I forgot to take a photo but it was quick and easy to put together and tasted great.

If you are looking for a unique idea for your child’s birthday party, consider a Healthy Hands cooking party. A party costs $150 and includes all supplies and ingredients to make one of twelve menus for up to 10 children.

I recently did my first birthday party and we all had a blast. The party was for a 9-year old girl who picked the menu of Greek vegetable and feta pasta stirfry and greek vegetable salad.

Most of the guests enjoyed it, a few plates came back pretty full.

Along with birthday parties, I also offer a variety of classes. Check Healthy Hands and type in your zip code for upcoming classes.

I have a Make you Own Pizza class scheduled for ages 8-13 on Tues, June 9th at Bethany on 42nd in South Fargo. The cost is $20 per student or $15 per student for more than one student per family. This is part of our new Legacy Chefs program where classes are held at Senior Communities and the residents can either watch or assist the children with the cooking.

When I was at the grocery store the other day, Grands Biscuits were 3/$1 because they were close to the sell by date, so I bought a few packages.

I was looking on Pinterest for recipes using Grands biscuits.

One of the recipes I found and tried was for Mini Monkey Bread. They were quick to put together and turned out great.

One of the resources I use for recipes is Taste of Home. They publish a monthly magazine of recipes submitted by readers. Annually, they publish a cookbook of all the recipes that were in the magazines for the entire year. I have received the magazine and prefer the annual cookbook over it. They also have many of the recipes on their website and Facebook page.

I have made many recipes from the cookbooks over the years and received compliments on many of them.

I recently saw this recipe for chocolate cake and tried it. It was delicious!!

In place of the buttermilk I add about 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to milk. You can also use vinegar added to milk.

Also, I used sunflower seeds instead of the pecans.

Another resource I have discovered to teach kids about cooking is Ingredient magazine.

There are links on the site to view two sample copies to see what a typical issue will contain.

If you decide to subscribe you can choose either print or digital.

It seems like a good resource to teach kids about cooking and different foods.

I recently tried this recipe for Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken.

It was easy to make and tasted great. Instead of the fried rice, I cooked Minute Rice with chicken broth, soy sauce, chopped carrots and celery until the vegetables were tender.

It is an easy meal to make instead of getting take out or going out to eat for a fraction of the price and you control the ingredients.

I feel it is very important to teach kids how to cook. I recently became a Certified Cooking Instructor with Healthy Hands Cooking. There was a recent article in the Forum about my classes.

There is a preschool Lil’ Sprouts class for ages 2-5 scheduled for Tues, May 19 at Courts Plus in South Fargo from 9:30 to 10:30. More information and registration can be found at Healthy Hands Cooking and enter a local zip code.

I am in the process of scheduling classes for ages 5-13. Please send an email to or leave a comment if interested and preferred days and times for summer classes.

If you host a class or 8-hour Core program in your home or other location for 5-10 students, your child can attend for free.
