Many believe Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! On rushed weekday mornings it’s easy to overlook breakfast, and we could all use some quick and easy breakfast ideas. And on the weekends, breakfast can be a celebration of delicious foods - and a time for the whole family to be together.

This class will provide quick and easy recipes (including ones you can freeze). They are fun eats that are sure to become favorites in your household!

Class Includes: Materials List & Recipes

- Breakfast Burritos: A balance mix of egg, vegetable and cheese rolled up into a tortilla. These freeze well and can be reheated when needed. *Tofu can be substituted here, cheese omitted or vegan cheese substituted. Gluten free wraps, corn tortillas or no wrap are also options.

- Homemade Waffles with Fruit Compote: A fun weekend treat. Double the recipe, and freeze for busy weekdays. *Gluten free & Vegan options also available.

- Gluten-Free Vegan Breakfast Cookies: Delicious cookies that you can make the night before and hope they make it till breakfast! Quick and easy and oh so simple.

- Breakfast Potatoes: Make a big batch on Sunday and eat them throughout the week. Potatoes are versatile and last well in the fridge as leftovers. Add them to eggs, sauteed greens or breakfast meats and you have a hearty and quick meal at your fingertips.

THE SOUP & SALAD Cooking Class:

No soup is more iconic than a steaming, hot bowl of chicken soup. Every culture has its own version of a starch floating in the deep, rich broth that is known to cure the flu and the blues simultaneously. Noodles, matzoh balls, dumplings, rice and barley all equally compliment this nutritiously satisfying comfort food.

During this 3 hour long class you’ll learn to make on of the most nourishing dishes on a cold day, a sick day, or when you just need a pick me up: chicken soup! In addition to the soup, you’ll also learn to make a nutritious Cesar salad and coleslaw to go with it.

The version of chicken soup that you’ll learn to make is full of veggies and homemade broth. And it’s easy - virtually a one pot meal.

The soup you’ll make is best served with a fresh salad or coleslaw for optimum nutrition and satisfaction. You’ll also learn recipes for each of these dishes, healthy staples that can pair well with a variety of meals. The dressings for the salads will be made separately and then added fresh when ready to eat.

Class includes: Materials List & Recipes
- Chicken Soup
- Cesar Salad
- Coleslaw


Eggs are one of the most common items we have in our fridges, but also one of the most incredible! This class with Wendee will show you their full potential, and you’ll get to take your cooking skills to the next level at the same time.

The egg is one of the most abundant, versatile foods available. And today it’s possible to get local, organic, and even pasture raised eggs in many supermarkets. The health benefits of eggs are many, and chickens that have access to the outdoors to forage make eggs that are even higher in nutrients (especially omega fatty acids).

During this class you’ll learn two easy, healthy, and tasty ways to prepare eggs: quiches and breakfast burritos. These meals are easy to make in large quantities and eat for the rest of the week.

Class Includes: Materials List & Recipes

- Quiche: any kind you want. I prefer mine full of chopped veggies, and rich with flavor from abundant seasoning. Other possibilities include but not limited to, are: ham and cheese, artichoke and sun dried tomato, asparagus and brie, broccoli and sharp cheddar.

- Handmade Quiche Crust: My family’s favorite part of my quiches? The crust of course! No quiche is complete without homemade crust. A flaky and decadent alternate to the frozen versions, ours is made with organic butter and flour, thus insuring no inflammatory vegetable oils or GMO's. *Crust Free version for the quiche is also available for those gluten intolerant.

- Breakfast Burritos: An easy way to get vegetables in for breakfast! They freeze well too.

Wendee Daniels

Meet Wendee, aka Queen of Veggies, aka the Spice Queen. She first learned to cook as a Senior in High School. She had a class called Chefs Foods (Home Economics but “more modern”) in which her favorite food she learned to make was homemade pasta. In College she switched from Pre-Med to Interdisciplinary Studies and earned a BA in Child Development, and taught ski classes to kids while a student. During this time the book FOOD IS YOUR BEST MEDICINE fell into her hands with the powerful message “Let Food be Thy Medicine and Medicine be Thy Food”, which inspired her to start paying close attention to food and eating. Wendee started reading food labels, became a vegetarian and learned to cook with incredible diversity by learning to put vegetables in virtually everything. She even became a gardener.

Having always been interested in alternative medicine healing, herbs and nutrition, she later worked for a chiropractor and acupuncturist and a spark went off. She graduated from Chinese Medical School in 2000, became a rock climber and stopped being vegetarian, exploring what felt good for her body needs. With her new knowledge of medicinal herbs, she learned to incorporate traditional Chinese dietary principles into her cooking, using herbs as food. Still and always, there’s LOTS of veggies in her cooking!

After graduating from Chinese Medical School Wendee moved to Bend, OR. As an avid skier, rock climber and mountain biker, Bend seemed like paradise. She’s lived in Bend ever since. She now considers herself an omnivore, yet she first and foremost listens to her body, feeding it exactly what it needs instead of following a strict diet trend or label. This is the most important underlying value in the way she cooks for you or teaches you to cook for your body and lifestyle. Oh, and did we mention she’s been eating organic since before it was a thing? That is the only rule she applies to her food life. Ask her about the Dirty Dozen and the Clean 15! Furthermore, due to the tremendous digestive health value, she is a huge proponent of traditional cooking methods such as soaking techniques for legumes and grains, fermenting and sprouting.

Once Wendee became a mom she wanted to feed her child the best she could. Making food delicious was a top priority as well as ensuring it was rich in nutrition. She would hide certain foods and mix them in when she started weaning him, making more digestible the foods that are not so popular so that he could eat it and love it. And she also loves making food beautiful! Wendee appreciates beauty everywhere, so why not also bring it to the plate. Hiding nutritious food by chopping really tiny or pureed became a daily practice, being able to incorporate lots of veggies in a sauces, soups, even lasagna, etc. Introducing key foods when they’re little and young was important to her: mushrooms, cauliflower, onions, zucchini, beets, etc. And healthy versions of common favorites that may not be so healthy became second nature in her cooking style.

What else does Wendee know in the kitchen? She knows her brands. A trip to the grocery store with her could be life-changing. She is also a master at kitchen spice rack revamps and at teaching how to store foods properly and with smart planning for future meals.

What cooking style and focus does Wendee teach? Lots of vegetables and lots of flavor! Healthy modern versions of common comfort foods, ethnic inspired (Thai and Indian, Spanish and Mexican flavors), and cook it, eat it and freeze the rest for later. Wendee can also teach quick preps, healthy lunch, dinner and breakfast, and create custom meal plans complete with shopping and prep instructions.

Wendee teaching you how to cook involves: How to stock your kitchen, how to shop, oils, spices, herbs, HEALTHY choices and brands, how to read labels, tricks and tools for the kitchen, smart food storage, meal prep AND cooking delicious, nutritious, beautiful meals!
