It will boost your confidence to choose the best foods at the grocery store. Foods that will energize your body, plus keep you and your family fit, strong and well. 

It will give you the courage to read a recipe, sharpen your knife, turn on the stove and create simple, tasty everyday meals that you enjoy and that make you feel good.

Food Educator
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 these courses, 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 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.
