  • Baking 101
    • Eli was once terrified of baking - all of that measuring, exact timings - it was too much! But she got over it and now loves to bake. From healthy banana bread to delicious vegan chocolate mousse cake, Eli will teach you the ropes and a few basic goodies! You'll learn how to tell and feel when something's done and how to get over your fears.
