Read, Cook, Eat: Light Cooking

Join us on June 12th at 2 p.m. for some yummy healthy foods.  Summer is just 8 weeks away and its time to lose those extra pounds we found this cold and blustery winter! 

We are trying something new this time. We will have 2 books to chose from as well as a food blog.  The author of this food blog is local, she lives in Oceanside, and finding her ingredients should be a breeze.
