COOK TO THRIVE! Cooking Class Recipes and Video
Julie hosted her second Cook to Thrive! Virtual Survivorship Cooking Class. It was a blast! Thanks to everyone who joined and a big shout out to everyone who donates to help make this class happen.
This month we used recipes from the Eating Well Through Cancer cookbook, which is one of Julie’s favorites. And thanks to a grant from the Clemmons Community Foundation, any local survivor is welcome to call our office to get a free copy!
Check out the pics from what we made. They are as delicious as they are beautiful!
