As a cooking instructor, it’s always fun to go take a cooking class to pick up some new skills!

Travel Snacks—Pam’s “Cocoa Puff” Chickpeas

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching / August 24, 2019 /

There’s just something magical about taking time to relax and nibble on little savory tea sandwiches and beautiful bites of decadent desserts with tea and champagne.  It feels so fancy yet is so relaxing.
