Anyway,we're thinkin' there is some kind of pretty sumptuous romantic Valentine's Day combination that one could put together with The Get Fresh 3 Course Menu and an armload...or handful... of Zuzu's Flowers.
How much more cozy and intimate than yet another dinner out.
Stay home, eat well, snuggle....

Cooking Classes for Kids and the Ones Who Love Them
It's just a fact-kids love to get in elbows deep and cook! And even better, they love to try the things they make. So why not start your child down a path of excellent food choices the fun way-with Delectables for Ducklings. From baked goods to full meals, at these classes you and your child will learn to make a variety of delicious, healthy foods. Parents will learn tips to get their kids to eating better and everyone will learn about great nutrition and easy ways to get it. While the oven bakes our masterpieces we will do a small edible project. After it's all cooked, we will taste together and of course send you home with whatever you don't finish. Parents and kids alike will learn a lot-and have an absolutely ducky time doing it! Classes are taught by Laura Fischer-Harbage, Certified Holistic Nutritional Counselor who specializes in family nutrition. Come find out what everyone is quacking about!

Transitions: Integrating Your Baby or Toddler into a Family Meal

We will cover your child's nutritional needs and how to meet them, as well as tips to address fussy eaters before it becomes a problem. Suggestions are quick and easy with the objective of making one meal to accomodate the entire family. This is the first step to phase out child vs. grown-up meals.
