Calling all parents who are tired of making lunches that barely get eaten...

Slapping together sandwiches, arranging vegetables into fancy shapes, and packing lunch bags every single weekday is leaving you a little frustrated.
Especially when your child brings home their half-eaten lunch, complaining that they didn’t like what you made them.
You’re starting to wonder if your child should begin making their own lunches? Perhaps if they were invested in the preparation they’d actually eat their food and you’d feel better knowing they’re not hungry at school.
Everything would change if only your child knew how to...

Parents loving their little chef’s cooking confidence

“I was impressed with the high quality meals they made, and my child was very proud of all of the cooking and baking they got to do. I would definitely recommend Dickie’s Cooking School. We will be taking more classes in the future!”  ~D KL

“We have been doing Lisa’s Zoom cooking classes and my daughter has enjoyed them all. She is becoming more confident in the kitchen and the finished meal is always great!” ~SALLY

Hey, I’m Lisa Dickie

Head Chef & Founder of Dickie’s Cooking School (and former elementary school teacher.)

There’s not much that makes me happier than watching a child’s face as they take that first bite of a recipe they just put together–the look of satisfaction paired with a little more confidence is worth a messy kitchen every time.

And when kids get to share their new cooking skills with their family, I know parents are celebrating that extra independence too. Especially when it means making lunches can be a do-it-yourself situation

Over the last few years, I’ve helped dozens and dozens of kids learn to cook with confidence and this I know to be true: Kids love being in the kitchen when they’re taught to trust their own skills and given the step-by-step guidance to get there. 

That’s why I created Yummy Easy Fast Lunches so kids could get to love and trust their own cooking, while enjoying tasty lunches too. 

Enjoy our on-the-house guarantee

Yummy Easy Fast Lunches includes step-by-step video instructions and recipes for kids to make ten different lunches. Plus, you already know there’s a whole bunch of bonuses to make lunchtime even better. These are way better for kids to learn to cook than any YouTube video out there.

I’m confident that if your child tries a few of the recipes, they’ll not only enjoy the taste, they’ll develop more confidence in the kitchen. You’ll have 14-days to try out the cooking course, and if you don’t feel they’ve grown as a chef, I’ll happily refund back your investment.
