Online Cooking Club

Do you want to create delicious and nutritious meals for your family but can't find the time to do it? I've got you covered!

Monday, November 14 or November 21 6:30 - 9pm PST

2.5-hour class to get the prep for dinners, snacks and extras DONE so your week goes more smoothly and your family eats healthier.

You dream about being like that friend... you know, the one who has it all together...the one that somehow manages to make everything FROM SCRATCH.  

Homemade meals, granola, cookies, and snacks. She even makes her own yogurt! 

You wonder: how does she do it and what am I doing wrong?

You are either not really sure how to make delicious nutritious meals or you know how but can't manage to find the time to make it happen. AND you really don't want to spend all your time in the kitchen.

If you want to create delicious healthy meals and not be consumed by it, you are in the right spot! 

Thanksgiving is coming up. You are going to be busier than usual. 

Why not get a few dinners ready that you can pull out of freezer before or after Thanksgiving when you don't have the time to think about what's for dinner.

Or maybe you need a side dish, appetizer or dessert to bring to Thanksgiving dinner.

The dishes we will be making in class will compliment any Thanksgiving celebration. 

As a bonus, all recipes are gluten and dairy free...for you or your hard to please in-laws.

I’m Maria Quintana-Pilling, a Certified Nutrition Consultant and Natural Chef.

I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed by the thought of preparing healthy nutritious meals while living a busy life. Work, an active social life or a little one vying for your attention can make cooking a meal nearly impossible.

I spent hours trying to make complicated recipes that left me tired, frustrated and up late at night. I quickly learned that planning and keeping it simple are key to keeping your sanity and eating healthy.

Finding the time to plan and make meals is probably the biggest hurdle many of my clients face. 

That’s why I created the Homemade Meals Cooking Club.  

HMCC is perfect if you:  

  • Want to make healthy nutritious meals for yourself and your family; 
  • Find yourself scrambling to get dinner on the table at 6pm - often resorting to ordering take out;
  • Waste a ton of money and food because you never actually cook at home;
  • Feel like you are in a rut - you make the same meals and need new ideas and inspiration; or
  • Don’t have the time to make full meals every night.

In the Homemade Meals Cooking Club, we will create the time to get it done. 

We will get you set up so you CAN make delicious nutritious meals -- easily throughout the week.

We'll prep vegetables and marinades. We'll make homemade snacks and kitchen staples like salad dressings and yogurt. 

The cooking classes will be online so you can prepare along side me in your kitchen as you watch on your computer, iPad or smart phone. You will be able to ask me questions as we go as if we were in the same kitchen.

At the end of the class, you will have dinners ready and have snacks and pantry essentials made.

Later in the week, all you'll need to do is pop the prepared ingredients in the oven, slow cooker or bowl and you're dinner will be ready to eat.

What people are saying about Homemade Meals… 

"I had so much fun taking Maria's online cooking class. Sure, it's great to have meals prepped in your fridge ready to go, learn a new recipe, and have your family thankful for delicious meals. But I also always learn new things from Maria - why a certain ingredient is good for your digestion according to a nutritionist - or knife-cutting skills - or how to properly chop/slice an onion (oh, and the garlic-peeling trick is revolutionary!) I love the step-by-step process where I can watch Maria and ask questions along the way. You just can't get all of that from googling a recipe. I have 2 small children and cooking dinner is the hardest thing about my day. This helped me to see how I could prep some dinners to make evenings a little easier. Thanks, Maria! It's always a pleasure cooking with you in your kitchen. " - Joanna, Fairfax, CA

"I have attended various cooking courses with Maria – both in Private home and at Taste Kitchen. I just had the pleasure of attending her Online Cooking class using my laptop in my kitchen, last week. The Zoom technology allowed us to interact and see one another. Great technology! I got shopping lists, tools needed, and recipes in advance, so I was well prepared in advance of the class. It was fun to work together, without the hassle of commuting and I was in the comfort of my own kitchen. I could ask real time questions and at the end of the class had several days of food prepared and ready to freeze or cook. Thank you Maria!" -- Julie, Corte Madera, CA

"Maria’s workshops do not disappoint! I have taken her Spring Fling Wellness Bootcamp and her [Homemade Meals] online cooking class, as well as other various events and classes. She delivers spot on every time with valuable information, inspiration and encouragement. I can’t wait for next week’s 5-Day Detox. I trust her and know that it will make an immediate impact on my entire family’s well being, as well as provide yet another helpful “tool” to my nutritional/wellness arsenal!" - Carolyn, Mill Valley, CA

Here's how it works:

You will receive the recipes, menu plan and shopping list on the Friday, November 11. Then on Monday, November 14 or 21, you will log in to the cooking class via your computer, iPad/tablet, or smart phone. I will lead you through prepping and cooking.

We are some of the things we will be prepping:

  • CrispyTurkey Breast with Sauteed Mushroom Kale & Sage
  • Coconut Chicken/Turkey Soup with Winter Squash and Collards
  • Pesto
  • Cilantro Avocado Sauce/Dressing
  • Spaghetti Squash Cakes
  • Pumpkin bread/cupcakes

All recipes are gluten- and dairy-free (unless you choose otherwise).

The Homemade Meals Cooking Club is Monday, November14 and 21. If you are ready to create stress free nutritious meals, sign up now!

The full price is $67 

but sign up before midnight Thursday, November 10 and you get to join for $47! 

The class is from 6:30 - 9pm PST. I recommend that you plan another simple meal for your family to eat that night since as we won't be completing a meal but parts of several meals. 

If you have little ones at home, I suggest having your spouse/partner take the kids out for a fun dinner and take care of the nighttime routine so you can focus and be as productive as possible. 

If are not able to join us at the scheduled time, a recording of the class will be sent to you and you can block out a time that is more convenient for you.
