If you miss last night's stake provident living class, you definitely missed out! We had a great evening filled with amazing information and yummy food!

Some of the things we learned how to make are: evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, buttermilk, whip cream, yogurt, cream cheese, ricotta cheese, harder cheeses, sour cream, whey, magic mix for cream soups or alfredo sauce, and coconut face or body cream.

Some of the delicious foods we tasted: salad with homemade ranch dressing, lasagna with homemade ricotta cheese, homemade tootsie rolls, Lion House rolls made with powdered milk, cheesecake with homemade cream cheese, 7-Layer Bars with homemade sweetened condensed milk, homemade whipped cream, popcorn popped with coconut oil and hot chocolate from the LDS Home Storage Center.

 But don't worry if you couldn't make it to the class. We've got all of the tips and recipes for you right HERE. Enjoy!

 Get ready for our next class about BEANS, on Thursday, February 25, at 7 p.m.!


  1. Hi Tricia, Just thought that i could add one more recipe for using the powdered milk
    Cream of anything soup mix - Gluten Free!
    2 c. non fat powdered milk
    3/4 c. cornstarch
    1/4 c. chicken or vegetable boullon granules
    2 tsp. dried onion flakes
    1 tsp. dried thyme
    1 tsp. dried basil
    1/2 tsp. black pepper

    measure all into a Ziplock bag, shake well. transfer to your favorite storage container and store up to a year. This makes the equivalent to 9 cans of cream soup or sauce start.

    To Use:
    1/3 cup mix
    1 cup water
    1 Tbsp butter(optional,helps with sauces)

    combine mix, butter and cold water in a medium sauce pan, whisk gently. cook over low/med heat until thickened.
    Variations: add 1/2 cup of minced or chopped *_______________*

    *Choose one or more*:
    Onions, Mushrooms, Asparagus, Broccoli, Celery, Cooked Chicken, Diced Potatoes, Tomato, Cooked Shrimp, ect.
    Use as you would any in any Cream of Anything Recipe

    Have fun loved the class!
