Hello, thanks for checking out my store!
I'm Barb Kemp a passionate home cook and a food educator with over 15 years experience teaching.
I get very excited talking about all things food, eating fresh foods and cooking. I believe that food is the foundation of good health. My hope is that you too, will become inspired to cook at home using my weekly meal plan notepads and shopping lists.
My love of food and cooking began in my twenties when I was told to become a 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 take-out 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 discovered a whole new positive lifestyle change.
Later, when I became a mom, one of our kids 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 the Recipes To The Rescue Newsletter in 1998 the Recipes To The Rescue Blog in 2009,
- created FREE meal planning online courses in 2016 and
- opened a Recipes To The Rescue store in 2020 selling notepads for the home cook.
Learning to menu plan saved me and my family many times and I know it can save yours too. I hope you find joy in your kitchen and find these notepads as helpful with meal planning as I do.
Be well and cook on!
