Fabulous Menu on a Freezing Fall Day

The weather outside could not have paired better with my fall menu this past Thursday. The chill in the air and the overcast sky provided the most amazing backdrop outside my windows for the feast going on inside. Chili Con Carne, gooey delicious Sinful Cinnamon Rolls, and a Harvest Moon Cheese Platter were on the menu. These students were ready to learn and warm up with some delicious food!

The Cheese platter provided the students with ideas for creating their own at home and options for different seasons. Mix it up with seasonal garnishes and fruits. Presentation is the fun part! (Well, that and eating it, of course!)

Warm and gooey cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven. Served warm is the only way!

Thanks to all my new and returning Creme students!! It was a pleasure teaching you my latest menu while having lots of laughs and learning lots of new recipe tricks. The season is upon us for plenty more chili and rolls in your kitchen as well. Cheers!
