I recently tried this recipe 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 nkvamme03@gmail.com 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.

If you or someone you know suffers from Celiac Disease, you may be able to receive tax deductions for expenses associated with gluten-free foods and products.

Here is an article explaining how to apply for a possible tax deduction. It may take some time and work but may be worth it if you get a sizeable deduction.

I recently discovered the app of Flipp that can be used on your mobile phones or tablets. With the app you can view sale circulars for over 400 retailers. Along with national retailers, you may also receive circulars for local stores. Mine includes on of local grocery stores (Hornbachers).

One of the selections with the app is The Shopping List, you add items to your list and Flipp will find all local deals for you. This is useful to find the lowest prices on items and also if you are price matching at certain retailers. WalMart is one of the retailers that will price match other retailers prices on most items.

It is also useful to compare prices of items while you are out shopping.

If you are looking for a different way to get the taste of cheeseburgers, try this Cheeseburger muffin recipe.

I tried it recently and it turned out great. I added chopped pickles to one batch for a different taste.

They could be served with a salad for a light dinner or lunch or an appetizer. You could also freeze a batch and warm up as needed for a quick meal or snack.
