My teaching experience is varied. As stated above, I grew up with a family that ran two restaurants so food preparation just is part of my identity, it is something I love.  I am also a Professor, attorney and mother of seven.  I have taught everything from pre-k to Graduate School and have both homeschooled/unschooled and chosen traditional routes for my children. I have decided to teach this class simply for my love of cooking, family meals, and to share something I am passionate about.

Parental/Adult guidance is suggested during this course, especially if your student intends to cook their masterpiece.  If using an instapot/instantpost please remember we will be working with steam and the steam valve.  Proper hand equipment is necessary to keep from getting burned.  Students should familiarize themselves with the directions of the steam vent. When possible, I  recommend using a slow cooker as they seem the safest route but, they do get hot and oven mitts be necessary.  At times we will also have recipes that must go in an oven or items that must be cooked on the stove-top.  I know many students are capable of doing this, but at the same time there are safety risks that go with most kitchen items. Recipes will require the handling of a knife for chopping as well. If safety is a concern, an adult can prep the recipe ahead of time and have the student put ingredients together during class without cooking.  Recipes can be put in a freezer until an adult is available to assist, or in the fridge for 1-2 day usage. I leave it to the parents descretion if their learner is mature enough and able enough to cook on their own, but would recommend parental/guardian supervision for those that are not familiar with instantpots or in the kitchen in general. Warning: Please review each recipe in detail.  Possible allergens include: milk, nuts, wheat, dairy, eggs, or soy. Alternative recipes or ideas can be provided if you contact the instructor ahead of time.  Please give at least three days notice.  You can also tailor your recipe to your own tastes.
If the recipe is adapted, I will include where it was adapted from.
