I’m so excited – one of my favorite cooking class clients, Jenna Crespi launched Mama and Tata with her sister, Candice Miller, and it truly is the coolest insider’s guide to what every hip and healthy woman needs in NYC.

I’m obsessed with all of their recommendations.

Jenna and I have known each other since high school days. We both grew up in NYC and moved back home after college. We would see each other every week at the gym and on the streets of NY.

Jenna reached out to do some cooking classes with her friend. They wanted to learn quick, easy, healthy and delicious recipes that they could make for themselves and their husbands during the week. Every week we met and cooked together.

Recently I made Healthified Chocolate-Coconut Granola with Mama, Tata and their ADORABLE crew. Get the recipe here.

Check out some of the photos from our cooking class and interview!

The girls helped me mix up the gluten-free oats, coconut oil, maple syrup and dark chocolate chips.

We had so much fun and they couldn’t wait to put it in the oven! P.S How cute are they? And how adorable is that kid’s cooking mitt?!

On their site, Mama and Tata said: “We never learned how to cook when we were young, so naturally when we were becoming mamas we both scrambled to find a great chef to teach us how to make some simple, tasty, and healthy options. Arielle’s vibrant energy makes cooking a fun family activity and she tailors your menu to your personal food preferences. She teaches you to cook with healthy and organic ingredients, such as coconut oil instead of canola oil, almond meal instead of flour, her recipe for muffins made of chickpeas and almond butter is our personal fav!  She provides nutritional advice, hosts her own cooking show for Glamour Magazine, holds cooking events, and the list goes on! Not only is she great fun for adult groups or privates, but she also loves children and offers group cooking classes for the kiddies” – Mama & Tata.

Thanks, girls! I love, love cooking with you, too!
