Spring Into Healthy Cooking!

"Isn't it wonderful when the beautiful fresh green color of spring produce begins to push itself through the surface of the cool earth, reaching for the promise of longer, warmer, sunnier days!" -- Gina  

We launched our Spring Cooking Season with a fabulous class at Kannapolis Library at the end of March.  The class featured a collection of spring recipes to get the participants geared up for the local, seasonal produce arriving soon!      The Charlotte Observer has graciously spotlighted this class in an article in the  Cabarrus Neighbors Section on Tuesday, April 2, titled "Kannapolis cooks learn more about healthy spring cooking"!  To read this lovely article as well as find the spring recipes from the class, please click here.

4th Annual Viva Verde Earth Fest
Our spring cooking season continued on Saturday, April 20th at the 4th annual Viva Verde Earth Fest at North Cabarrus Park.  We had a blast cooking with friends old and new, among all the wonderful activities focused on recycling and green living. We were blessed with a blanket of sunshine, and cool breezes that made it a perfect day to celebrate Mother Earth! 

If you missed this year's festival, you can mark your calendars for next year's Viva Verde Earth Fest to be held on Saturday, April 19th, 2014 And a final "Thank You" to Cabarrus County Government, the City of Concord and the City of Kannapolis for working together to bring such a fabulous event to our community....see you next year!
