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. 

Also, now booking PRIVATE VIRTUAL COOKING CLASS events for your office, birthday party or friends/family! Contact me for more information on customizing your special event! 


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.

Kids ages 4-10 will love Cooking Club-the little ones may need more assistance from an adult. The recipes will include breakfasts, healthy snacks, nutritious sweet treats and entire meals the whole family will enjoy. A healthy relationship with food begins at home.  Join us for Kid’s Cooking Club and watch your little ones THRIVE in the kitchen! Enjoy a *FREE KID’S APRON* with the purchase of any 4-week Session (1 complimentary apron per registration but extras are available with purchase of “additional kid” at registration.

Cost: $18 each

March 27th: Arugula Pesto Potato Salad & Perfectly Blackened Salmon 

This meal screams SPRING and is perfectly balanced with protein/healthy fats/complex carbohydrates. Let’s make our own pesto for this potato salad (compared to the traditional mayo version).  The salad holds up well for days in the fridge (hello meal prep!) and is a lovely side for a Spring brunch too. If you need a new way to LOVE salmon, this is it! Let’s perfect that blackened salmon sear so you never overcook it again.

April 10th: Banh Mi Bowls & Lemon Blueberry Chia Superhero Muffins

Let’s do some meal prep! If you like Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwiches, you’ll LOVE these bowls. They are naturally gluten free and can be made vegetarian. You can enjoy these for Sunday dinner but save the leftovers (or double it) so you have lunches ready for the week too. We will also get our baking on with Monika’s favorite muffins with a Spring twist! Perfect for breakfast meal prep and are freezer-friendly. Let’s enjoy Spring meal prep with some healthy favorites!

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!
