So many of us would love to take control of our diets and cook more meals at home

Meals that are truly nourishing for our families and scrap all that take-out, processed, pre-made foods that are typically fatty, sugary and salty. Foods that make us feel bloated, sluggish and guilty.


What with juggling work, family, social events and everyday chores, there's little time to get organized to cook in the kitchen. Plus take-out is just a phone call away.

It's tough for the everyday home cook today.

Food has gotten confusing. It's hard to decipher what it all means.

I'm Barb Kemp and I've been delivering healthy eating and cooking programs for almost 20 years now. And I've found that  everyday cooks all want the same simple thing:


  • To eat better so they can improve their health and have more energy,
  • To understand better what's in their food, 
  • To prepare more meals at home,
  • To save money by dailing down on the take-out, 
  • To get more organized with their meal planning, 
  • and to feel inspired and motivated again in the kitchen.

This easy to follow course will give you the courage to meal prep tasty, yummy meals that make you feel good.

Who's It For? It's For The Everyday Home Cook Who:

  • Wants to eat healthy so you're well and have energy, but need a nudge to get started,

  • wants to eat more fresh foods, less take-out, processed and pre-made meals, but lack motivation,

  • wants to learn more about the food you eat without feeling over whelmed, confused or embarrassed about how you eat,

  • wants to meal plan so you will be organized, save time, money and waste less food,

  • is excited about feeding your family healthy, yummy meals they love to eat.

Barb Kemp

I’m Barb Kemp the course creator. I’m a food educator with over 15 years of experience, and an enthusiastic home cook. I get very excited talking and teaching about all things food, healthy eating and cooking. My hope is, through these courses, you too will find the joy of real food and be inspired to join the tribe of life-long healthy and happy home cooks. My love of food and cooking began in my twenties when I discovered my cholesterol level was very high. It was so high I was advised to become vegetarian. The problem was I liked meat and potatoes and didn’t really know how to cook. I was young and ate whatever I wanted, including takeout foods filled with addictive sugar, salt, and fat. Embracing the challenge, I learned to cook with veggies and whole grains and discovered a positive lifestyle change. Later, when I became a mom, one of our children developed a dairy allergy and all meals had to be made from scratch. I struggled at first, but once again welcomed the change and learned to menu plan and cook dairy-free. Eventually, I switched careers and started teaching and writing about the importance of home cooking and meal planning with healthy whole foods. Today, many home cooks lack food knowledge and confidence in the kitchen, as I once did. In some ways, the need to cook is declining, as prepared food is everywhere. Yet for many of us there’s a real desire to cook nourishing meals at home. That’s why I created online courses that are enjoyable and relatable for the everyday home cook. And teaches habits and skills that can easily become part of a healthy lifestyle. Learning the marvels of menu planning and gaining the confidence to cook saved me and my family…and it can save yours too. Join me and together we’ll bring magic into your home kitchen.
