Cooking for One

Chef Parker will be back to lead our new Cooking for One program! Has your family size changed significantly in recent years?

Chef Parker will teach how meal prep for one can be easy, budget-friendly, AND tasty. Stuffed peppers are a big hit at the NSC, so we encourage you to bring your own recipes to share with the group!

NSC Family Recipes Rock!

We are excited to have NSC member Anayis Kasper show us her family recipe for baklava. Anayis makes THE BEST baklava and we are sure you won’t find it this good anywhere you go. While there are many variations for this popular treat throughout Europe and the Middle East, Anayis’ special recipe was passed down to her by her father who worked in a pastry shop while he was in college. Plus…she says it is much easier to make than it looks. You simply cannot pass up the chance to learn how to make this special sweet treat!
