Welcome to the Cooking Reboot Online Course!

Would you like to have the healthiest family possible?

So many of us would love to eat healthier and cook more dinners at home.  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 ideas? It’s a big stressor for the everyday cook these days.

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? 

Gain the confidence to feed your family the healthiest meals possible.

I’ve been cooking with everyday cooks, like yourself, delivering healthy eating and cooking programs for over 15 years now, and I’ve found that home cooks all want the same simple things: to eat better and cook more so they can improve food they eat and the health of their family; to understand better what’s in their food, so they choose wisely at the grocery store; to prepare more meals at home with real foods; to save money by dialing down on the take-out; to get more organized with meal planning and healthy meal prep ideas; to feel inspired and motivated in the kitchen.

It’s why I created the Cooking Reboot course.  I wanted to develop a course that was enjoyable and relatable to the everyday cook.  To give you the confidence and inspiration to prepare the healthiest meals possible for your family and friends…and to have some fun in the kitchen.

How it works

Sign up for the guided course and the fun begins! Every week for 4 weeks you will receive bi-weekly emails to guide you through the process.  It’s expected that you complete one session each week.  We want you to savour the course and practice cooking in-between sessions.  Each of the 4 sessions comes with a workbook, 5-7 video lessons, plus lots of recipes. Expect to spend 35 minutes per week on the course plus home cooking!  There’s also a discussion box inside each session to share your experiences, both successes and struggles, with other home cooks.


The program kicks off by setting you up for success.  In this session you will come away convinced that food matters and become inspired to cook more at home.  We’ll show you how to chop onions and garlic and show you how to make a Tomato Meat Sauce Recipe.


In the second session we’ll explore food.  You’ll understand the importance of eating real food and discover ways to include more fruits and veggies in your diet.  By the end of the week you will be whipping up delicious salads and whizzing up tasty smoothies.  As well, we’ll look at the benefits of buying produce at your local Farmers Market.  


In this session we ask the question “do you really know what’s in your food?” You’ll learn to decipher food labels so they aren’t so confusing (and misleading!).  Understanding what’s in your food will help you eat better.  As well, you learn some different ways to save money at grocery store (who doesn’t like saving money?).  We dive into talking about grains and fibre, especially the importance of fibre and how to increase your intake so you can feel healthier.  By the end of the week you will be preparing a soup, a wrap or a pasta primavera which all help increase your daily fibre. 


Taking a little bit of time each week to get organized is the best thing you can do to establish great cooking habits. In this session you’ll learn how to plan your weekly meals so you can save money, save time, eat better and eat less take-out.  By the end of the session you will be enjoying yourself in the kitchen, cooking up delicious Veggie Chilli, Quiche or Easy Curry Chicken.  You’ll be on the road towards establishing a healthy, happy kitchen.


  • You will cook more at home.
  • You and your family will be eating foods that truly nourish your bodies and understand how to eat healthy.
  • You will have more energy and be more productive. You will be sick less often, healthier and happier.
  • Your friends and family will enjoy the simple, tasty, healthy meals that you prepare with love. You will have the confidence to call yourself a home cook.
  • You’ll be organized in your kitchen, meal planning and eliminate that dreaded question, “What am I going to cook for dinner tonight?”
  • You will save money on your grocery bills and stop eating so much take-out. You will understand what’s in the food sold at the grocery store.
  • You’ll be a healthy and happy home cook and become passionate about fresh whole foods.


We don’t like rules. The program is 4 sessions and is meant to take place over a 4-week period. It would be great to have you join us each week, but, we all have busy lives. We know this. If you are planning on being away (hopefully somewhere hot, and on a beach) during the 28 days, don’t worry; the program will be waiting for you when you get back.

The program starts with session one. Every week for four weeks you’ll get an email with a link to the course. Each of the 4 sessions comes with a workbook, video lessons, video trainings, and recipes. Each session has 5-7 videos, to be watched throughout the week or all at once. Expect to spend 35 minutes/week  on the course plus your home cooking.  We’ll also be supporting you through the process with bi-weekly reminder emails to keep you on track.

Good question! Cooking Reboot is not a cooking course. Everyone wants to eat better and cook more at home but we simply lack the encouragement, inspiration, knowledge, and confidence to make it happen. This program starts a conversation about food and cooking with you and fellow everyday cooks. You will quickly become convinced that you can cook at home and you will taste the joy of your success.

This is not a problem. Everything you need can be found at garage sales or thrift stores (or maybe your mother’s cupboards?). You just need a few basics such as: one knife either a chef’s knife or long (6-8inch) utility knife and a small paring knife, a cutting board, a medium size saucepan with a lid and a sauté pan, a large soup pot with a lid, one bowl (medium-size will do), colander (for draining pasta and washing veggies), a wooden spoon, cheese grater, vegetable peeler, measuring cups and spoons, dishtowel and dish washing soap.

No, that’s not our gig! We believe that no one likes to be told what to eat. Cooking Reboot strives to empower you to do your own menu plan. This way you get to choose the recipes and the food you like to eat. Don’t worry – it’s fun, easy and tasty.

Yes. We offer a 100% money-back guarantee for up to 14 days from the time you start the course. So if you’ve gone through the first 2 sessions of the program and aren’t entirely satisfied we’ll happily refund your purchase.


I’m the creator of the Cooking Reboot course and the Principal of Recipes To The Rescue.  Outside of the online world I’m a food educator and facilitator who runs healthy eating and cooking classes to teach everyday cooks on how to  prepare healthy meals for themselves and their families in Vancouver, Canada.
I’m a passionate home cook and my wish is for you to become a passionate home cook as well.   I’ve been hooked on real, whole food since my late 20s when I decided to improve my diet for health reasons. I realized if I ate more veggie, whole grains and less meat, I had more energy and was sick less often. I discovered the power of food.
It wasn’t until I became a mom that cooking took on a whole new meaning.  I took cooking and nutrition classes, read cook books galore, became obsessed with cooking and one thing lead to another. I started writing and blogging about food and cooking, offering personalized menu plans to busy moms, and delivering healthy eating and cooking programs.  That all started close to 20 years ago!
One of the biggest things I’ve learned is that so many home cooks, new moms especially, want to eat healthy and cook more at home but lack the time, encouragement, inspiration, knowledge, and confidence to make it happen. This is why I created the Cooking Reboot course –  to ignite your love for real food, home cooking and healthy eating.   To turn healthy eating into a habit, to have you cook more at home and support you along the way.
