Let’s cook TOGETHER and TAKE THE STRESS OUT OF MEAL TIMES! All recipes for online cooking classes will be simple, easy and centered around ingredients you may even have in your kitchen. You’re guaranteed to love the recipes and cook them again and again. All recipes are nutritious, flavorful and easy to replicate!

Recipes, shopping list and Zoom link will be emailed upon received payment (non-refundable) 1 week in advance of the class date. Please note, sign up early so you have time to shop for the recipes. Monika will provide ideas for ingredient substitutions, nutrition tips and interact with guests during the class. Have a question during class? Shout it out! This is NOT a YouTube cooking tutorial or TV cooking class. It’s interactive! *Please let Monika know if you don’t receive the recipes via email (check Spam/Junk folders)! HOTMAIL AND OUTLOOK EMAIL ADDRESSES TEND TO HAVE TROUBLE WITH EMAIL CONFIRMATIONS AFTER REGISTRATION. 


Tips for Success at Virtual Cooking Experiences:

If you’re a novice in the kitchen, that’s OK! We will cook at pace that will allow you to be empowered and confident!

  1. Read all recipes before class. Gather ingredients and equipment so that everything is ready for cooking! Some of the food may be prepped before class if you prefer. Monika will mention specific prepping tips on some recipes.
  2. Print recipes before class or have them readily available to read on a screen as we cook together. If you forget, that’s ok. You will be instructed on each step on the recipes.

Well-organized, great energy, Monika made everyone feel at home, and the extra tips on health were most welcomed!

I m such a novice that I really appreciated the advance handout giving me time to shop, prep, pull out everything I need throughout the process. And cooking alongside Monika was terrific! I felt so accomplished by the end!
