Do you have a few hours free on Sunday without your little one? Have you always wanted to make apple pie to impress not only your hubbie but yourself? Take this workshop and be a homesteader for a few hours. Learn to wow with pie and try your hand at an Italian Sugo sauce and take home some smudgy herbs too. Just bring your own rolling pin. Seriously.
