Cooking class of COTS reveals inner strength of residents
“It just feels very natural,” she explains. Her first class she worked with the women to make chicken noodle soup. Each class, she varies her approach based on the women who attend and their level of cooking skill. They’ve made recipes ranging from eggs and hashbrowns to homemade hot pockets. This month, they are going to make pumpkin pie.
For Mary Kay, the benefit of the class goes beyond simply teaching the women cooking skills. “Maybe for an hour we can take them out of the craziness that they’re going through,” she says with a grin. “They’re pleasant and ready. There’s this inner strength about them that I admire. I think they’re teaching me.”
