    Craftsy Cooking Classes

    Online cooking classes are a great way to learn how to cook. I recently found Craftsy an online platform offering classes in cooking, baking, cake decorating, photography, fun for kids, sewing and so much more. Currently they are offering a year long premium membership for just $3! It is normally $79.99!  I decided to take the Startup Library: Cooking class taught by Celeste Rogers. The class consists of  fifteen videos you can watch that will give you a lot of information on the basics you need to be able to cook in the kitchen.  She discusses the equipment you need and offers great tips as the lessons progress. I loved her tips on…

    America’s Test Kitchen Cooking School

    America’s Test Kitchen Cooking School is a great way to expand your cooking skills. They offer over 300 different courses you can take. The courses are broken down into three categories: technique lessons, cooking basics and recipe lessons. As a student you have the ability to sort the courses by level of difficulty, main ingredient or recipe type. I was looking for a course on cooking a steak on the stove top or oven, which I didn’t find, but there are lots of other great courses.  Crisp roasted potatoes is the course that I decided to take first. I’m not sure about you but I love roasted vegetables and potatoes. Sometimes they just…

    Home Ec 365 by Whole Foods

    Swap-Savvy Baking Getting Creative with Recipes & Replacements Whole Foods has recently launched a series of four free home ec classes. I took the class “Swap-Savvy Baking: Getting Creative with Recipes & Replacements.” The class was hosted by Molly Siegler and Joy Wilson (@joythebaker). The class is short just over ten minutes.  It wasn’t a traditional cooking class. Instead they gave you some good information for how to swap out items you have at home for what you are missing when you are baking. Some of the swaps I hadn’t heard of before such as replacing flaxseed and water for eggs.  Joy shows you how to make cornbread using all of the different…
