In mid-November, Residence Life hosted “Cooking With Class,” an event for women who live in the Quads.
Kayla McKinney, assistant residence director of the Women’s Quads and event organizer, said the purpose of the event was to give students some ideas for food to take to parties this holiday season.
“I want girls to have a few easy and delicious recipes to serve to friends and family” McKinney said.
Last semester, at the first Cooking with Class event, McKinney said students cooked a hectic three-course meal.
To keep down the chaos, McKinney chose “Fall Favorites” party food this time.
The first holiday treat students learned how to make is Christmas Oreo pops. The attendees put an Oreo on a stick, dipped it in chocolate and decorated it.
Next, the girls made sausage balls out of sausage, Bisquick, cheddar cheese and milk.
While the sausage balls were cooking, attendees received oven mitts, cooking utensils, cookie cutters and quick bread as door prizes.
Bailey Coleman, sophomore Business major, attended Cooking with Class.
“My favorite part of the event was getting to eat what we made, and it was really cool to learn new recipes,” Coleman said.
McKinney said she appreciates the idea of making a dish for a party or even for a friend.
“Making a homemade dishes for someone can be a great way to serve and bless them,” she said.
