We know that the Holiday celebrations are going to look a little different this year so, Spicy Jan of Tasty Road Trips is bringing you a special virtual webinar. Some people around the table may say “But we always have turkey!” Well, Jan is going to give you a new approach to holiday meals! Mixing it up and veering away from the traditional way of doing things can be a lot of fun! Spicy Jan is ready to show you some delightful ways to introduce some new traditions to the holidays while making an unforgettable meal!

Jan will be teaching us how to create: Homemade Sausage Roll, Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower Steaks & Brussel Sprouts, Spicy Jan’s Healthy Dip (optional), and Individual Cheesecakes (Instant Pot or oven baked). Please see ingredients list below.
