Swallowtail Treats – Cookie Decorating 101

Wendy is our cookie decorator extraordinaire!
“Along the way I have discovered a number of “tricks” in doing cookies that I wish I had known when I started.  Things like:  the best thickness for cookies, how to get the right icing consistency, which icing bag is best to use, how to decorate you cookies for a dimensional look, how to handle “wet” cookies and how much drying time is needed.” These things are the foundation for being able to do cookies effectively.

Health and Wellbeing

Beyond Digestion with Dr. Laura Brown: How GUT Health Connects to Your Mind, Body and Soul

Do you have trouble digesting the world around you? The onset of digestive and gastrointestinal issues often begins in times of grief, abuse or other major negative life events. When the mind can’t digest its reality, the body stops digesting its food – literally.
In this workshop, Dr. Laura Brown will address the many ways in which your gut health relates to the overall health of your mind, body and soul. Even your mood can be a reflection of, or reaction to, what’s going on in your gut.

Learn how to:

  • Get to the root cause of your health problems
  • Detoxify your gut
  • Harmonize your sleep and body rhythms
  • Strengthen your immune system and balance your hormones
  • Regulate your emotions
  • Tune in to your body’s inner wisdom
  • Connect to your primal source of energy transformation

About the Presenter: Dr. Laura M. Brown, bestselling author and registered naturopathic Doctor with a functional medicine approach. She focuses on stimulating the body’s natural mechanisms to repair damage and rebuild health. She is a HeartMath Certified Practitioner, a level two Certified Gluten-Free Practitioner and holds the designation of ADAPT Trained Practitioner from Kresser Institute, the only functional medicine and ancestral health training company. Titled Miss Teen Ontario at age sixteen, Dr. Brown battled many health challenges of her own, ultimately prevailing through naturopathic medicine.
