Course description

NOTE:  This is a 4 week guided course.  You will receive bi-weekly emails to guide you through the course.  As well a menu planning bonus section.

Discover how easy it is to become a healthy home more fresh foods, less take out and have the healthiest family possible!

So many of us would love to be organized in the kitchen and cook more often at home. Prepare meals that are truly nourishing to our families and scrap all the take-out, processed, pre-made foods that are typically fatty, sugary and salty.

However, how many of us actually have the time to plan, shop for, and carry out healthy meal prep ideas?  Its a big stressor for home cooks today.

But what if you could cook healthy meals and get organized with healthy meal prep ideas with someone guiding you through each step of the process?  

Gaining the knowledge and skills to create awesome meals for your family will turn you into a healthy home cook.


I’m Barb Kemp, a food educator and self taught home cook who's been delivering healthy eating and cooking programs for over 15 years.  What I’ve found is that parents all want the same simple things:

  • to eat healthy and cook more at home so they can improve their health and have more energy 
  • to understand better what’s in their food  
  • to gain healthy meal prep ideas 
  • to save money by dialing down on the take-out 
  • to get more organized with their meal planning 
  • and to feel inspired and motivated again in the kitchen. 

This is why I’ve created this online courseI wanted to develop a course that was enjoyable and relatable to the everyday cook. To teach healthy eating & cooking habits that are easy to implement. To give you the confidence to prepare simple, tasty meals for your family and friends and have fun in the kitchen

Is this course for me?

This course is for those who wish to make home cooking a bigger part of their lives.  Who wish to simplify food decisions, build cooking skills, feed their families simple, nourishing meals.  Who wish to take control of their health, eat well, have more energy and be sick less often.  

You're in the right place if you:

  • Don't have time to cook, but wish you did.
  • Have a desire to cook more at home with more real foods and less processed foods.
  • Wish to eat healthier so you have more energy and are sick less often.
  • Hate that looking question, "what am I going to cook for dinner?"
  • Are a parent and want to feed your family healthy meals but lack inspiration!
  • Are not organized, so you don't cook.
  • Wish to meal plan and stop throwing  out food you buy.
  • Eat way too much take-out because you can't get motivated to cook.
  • Are embarrassed to call yourself a home cook but want to make the kitchen a bigger part of your home.
  • Are a new cook and could use some guidance in the kitchen.

This Course is not for professional chefs or experienced cooks who are confident in the kitchen.  This course is not for those on specialized diets.

Barb Kemp
Food Educator & Principal at Recipes to the Rescue
Hello and Welcome!  I’m Barb Kemp, a passionate home cook and creator of Cooking Reboot.  I’m a food educator with over 15 years of experience. I get very excited talking and teaching about all things food, healthy eating and cooking.  My hope is, through this course, you too will get hooked on real food and home cooking.  

My love of food and cooking began in my twenties when I was advised to become vegetarian for health reasons.  The problem was I liked meat and potatoes and didn’t really know how to cook.  I ate whatever I wanted, including takeout foods filled with sugar, salt, and fat.  Embracing the challenge, I learned to cook,  Then I started to add more veggies and whole grains into my diet and I discovered a whole new positive lifestyle change.

Later, when I became a mom, one of our children developed a food 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.  It was a game changer.

Eventually, I switched careers and started writing and teaching about home cooking, meal planning and fresh whole foods. 

Today, many home cooks lack food knowledge and confidence in the kitchen, just 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  desire to cook nourishing meals at home.

That’s why I write the Recipes To The Rescue Blog, Newsletter and created the Cooking Reboot online courses.  They're enjoyable and relatable for the everyday home cook and teach habits and skills that can easily become part of a healthy lifestyle. Learning the magic 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 joy into your home kitchen.
