Tofu Scramble Breakfast Stack: This just might be a thing

Some days I’m just lazy. I want to to cook fast and easy. I keep a mix of seasonings and herbs around just for this reason. Other times I’m inventive and coax amazing flavors out of the food I’m cooking. There are those times when I’m really just trying to...

Customer Testimonials

fun & patient teacher

My daughter and I attended one of Johnna’s cooking classes to try and learn more about vegetarian cooking.  The class was excellent, Johnna has a way of making you feel that cooking is fun.  We made 3 dishes, roasted vegetable enchiladas with green chili sauce, Arroz, and Agua Fresca de Fruta. It was all delicious and my daughter and I make the dishes at home for the whole family.  We are not vegan yet but if I could cook like Johnna I probably would be.  She is very patient.
