You know you want to eat real food, but what about all your favorite recipes? They don't have to go in the circular file - learn to reverse engineer recipes calling from cream of whatever soup in this half hour demonstration.
I'll make a basic cream sauce and show you how to adapt it to become many different flavors, then talk a little philosophy ...See All

At the end of the class, you'll receive a discount code for 40% off the eBook, which has recipes for lots of basic ingredients plus a few dozen examples of "real-food-izing" those processed creations.
As a busy mom of three little ones, Katie Kimball knows a thing or two about saving time in the kitchen, but she also wants the best of health and nutrition for her family. From yogurt to salad dressing, the Kimball kitchen is filled with homemade foods with nary a box or package in sight.
Kimball's blog, Kitchen Stewardship, is focused on balancing nutrition with frugality, the environment with the time available, all as good stewards of God's gifts. Since 2009 KS has offered family-friendly recipes, science geek research into traditional foods and real food nutrition, and lots of helpful tips with a healthy dose of humor and real-life personal experience.
A teacher by training, Katie Kimball is well known for her detailed recipes, breaking everything down into baby steps that won't overwhelm even the most nervous newlywed on her first foray into cooking with real food. Her goal is to make whole foods easy (& tasty) for any family to eat day in and day out.
The video "introduction" is really a lesson on how to make homemade mayonnaise, something that is pretty difficult to find using only wholesome ingredients. Her Learn It Live course will cover a bit of "reverse engineering" as well - how to make recipes that call for cream of chicken soup completely from scratch using real ingredients.
