Wills and Trusts Planning

The coronavirus pandemic has caused people to panic and rush to plan their wills, trusts and other estate planning documents. In fact, sales of online wills and legal documents have absolutely exploded over the past year.

Such panic can also cause us to make uninformed decisions against our best interests. It’s important to have your estate planning affairs in order in any stage of life. Whether you have questions about your existing plan or are in the preparation stages, this webinar will help inform you of your options and provide clarity around your most pressing issues.

Learn How to Make Breakfast Strata
Tuesday, November 15
10:00 - 11:30 am

We look forward to having you join us for our online cooking class as we learn how to prepare a simple, yet stunning make-ahead breakfast strata.

While it sounds Italian, the strata - a layered casserole - is actually American in origin. The earliest recipe has been found in a 1902 book, Handbook of Household Science. That first recipe used white sauce instead eggs. Today’s variations include everything from sweet stratas like French Toast Strata to savory stratas.

This is perfect recipe for making hosting around the holidays feel easy and stress free! Our expert chef from Salt Lake Culinary Education will be demonstrating how to make the strata live. A list of ingredients will be sent out ahead of the class if you want to follow along.
