Whether it’s Chicken Alfredo, Cheesecake, or those pesky homemade scones-we just can’t help ourselves. The Food Sense Girls are here to rehab those unhealthy temptation foods into healthy delightful ones.
  • Wednesday, July 9th @ 7pm: Strawberry Delight: Pies, jam, shakes, and smoothies are just a few of the foods that strawberries champion with their delicious flavor.

  • Tuesday, July 15th @ 7pm: Little Theatre Hall of Fame #3: Although the Little Theatre at our store has been around for years, we are still welcoming new friends to our little group. If you have fallen in love with recipes from our classes held in the old Macey’s Little Theatre, then this class will be one to mark on your calendar. Dawna Webb, our Little Theatre coordinator, will be going through our old recipe books and choosing some of the best of the best recipes to share. ***This class will feature recipes from Rosa Jackson & Relda Sandgran.
  • Wednesday, July 16th @ 7pm: Healthy Chocolate: Most women adore chocolate, but then there’s that annoying guilt that nags at us in the back of our minds because chocolate isn’t the healthiest treat we could be enjoying. But don’t fret! Come discover the benefits of Healthy Chocolate, which will be taught by NayDean Park. She will discuss Healthy Chocolate, how it helps protect the heart, brain, and other body systems, and provides superior antioxidant protection. So put that nagging thought to bed, and come find out a healthier way to enjoy chocolate. **For more information call: (530) 386-5238.
  • Wednesday, July 30th @ 7pm: Beat the Heat: When it comes to cooking and baking in the summer, we just can’t take the heat of the kitchen on top of the heat streaming through the windows. More often than not, this means that we opt for meals that require no heat, which leaves much to be desired. Thankfully, Alissa Weller knows just what recipes are quick and require little time in that hot kitchen. So if you want to beat the heat-and eat a hearty meal-mark this class on your calendar.
