    I’m no parent, but I think the Mom and Kids class would be a cute thing to do together.

  • Abby says:

    I am torn between the Frugal Gourmet and The Art of Chocolate classes. I may have to just do both.

  • North Scotty says:

    Cooking classes are a lot of fun and a great way to try new foods. I have done several at Sweet Basil, so much fun.

  • Sarah says:

    Who knew there were so many options for cooking class! Very cool that “normal” restaurants would offer this.

  • RICA says:

    How come there arent any classes during sundays or mondays?!

  • Thank you so much for wonderful ideas. finding things to do with children is so hard sometimes, especially during the winter break when they are home ALL THE TIME! Their most recent favourite is to make random sandwich crafts out of bread and salad bits, not sure how to explain it I found at this recipes for kids site here, the’res a little picture with each one which is great. Thought your readers might like to try that too. Well, I must be back to rea life now, either my kids are calling or I’m imagining things, which is also quite possible.
