Event Participants and Coordinators Say:

" Wanting to introduce my students to healthy methods of cooking, I invited Elizabeth Yarnell into my classroom as a guest speaker. Not only did the students love her cooking demonstration and delicious food, but Elizabeth empowered them to make wise, nutritionally sound food choices.

"Through personal experience, she was able to convince the students that their food choices in adolescence will impact their life-long wellness. The nutritional information she shared was very fitting in my high school level Foods and Nutrition classes. Her enthusiasm for healthy eating was very contagious as she shared her personal story.

"An entrepreneur by trade, but a fabulous cook at heart, Elizabeth's passion for healthy food was evident in the classroom. As a teacher, I believe that it is essential to equip students with knowledge and skills they can use in their everyday life. Nutrition and disease prevention is just one of those tools that will help them to become successful in life. Elizabeth was the perfect guest speaker to have in my classroom as she was able to encourage the students to make wise choices in their youth."

"My husband has crowned me gourmet cook ever since I became a one pot meal addict. Throw it in the pot, and dinner is ready in a flash and always delicious!"

Meg Evans, workshop participant, Colorado

"Glorious One Pot Meals describes an innovative approach to preparing delicious and healthy food.

From the Press:

"One-Pot Wizardry. Yarnell has patented a way of cooking in a Dutch oven, giving new meaning to the phrase one-pot meals."

Rocky Mountain News

"Playing with her recipe is a little like putting together a science experiment; the bonuses are little cleanup, and 45 minutes to do other things while the meal cooks."

Philadelphia Inquirer

"(These are) recipes that strike a balance between health, taste and nutrition – as good for those living with MS as those who are not."

Denver Post

"I can honestly say I'm ready to honor her All-American Pot Roast with some type of award that includes a goden statue and a live, televised audience... I've got tons of cookbooks on my counter. Some I use a lot and some just take up space. This one will get used."

The Moore American
