Let's talk about how hard it is to make dinner Every. Single. Night.
Let me know if this sounds familiar...
- The question "what's for dinner?" makes you feel irritated, overwhelmed.
- You feel totally uninspired and feel like you make the same dinners again and again.
- You have a freezer full of boxed dinners and you wish you could make a healthier meal more often.
- You know you spend too much on takeout and prepared meals (and let's not even talk about wasting food and aspirational ingredients).
- You have good intentions for dinner but mostly find it's just easier to use convenience foods.
- When you manage to make a nice family dinner, picky eaters make you feel like you might as well not even try!
IF THAT SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT, THEN KEEP ON READING.
You're probably experiencing at least one of the roadblocks of dinner...
No Skills & Wrong Equipment
No Family Meal Consensus
Dinner just feels like a grind
But dinner can truly be the best part of your day...
THESE FIVE FACTS PROVE
Dinner Is The Best Thing
You Can Do For Your Family
- Mealtime at home is the strongest predictor of better grades and fewer behavioural problems in 3-to-13-year-old children according to a University of Michigan study.
- Mealtime is far more powerful in influencing children's positive outcomes than time spent in school, studying, church, playing sports and doing art activities. These results hold true regardless of the child’s age, sex, race and family structure.
- As the regularity of family meals increases, rates of depression go down, as do suicidal attempts, drinking, smoking, drug use and early sexual behaviour.
- For middle and high school students, frequency of family meals is positively associated with intake of fruits, vegetables, grains and calcium-rich foods and negatively associated with soft drink consumption.
- The day-to-day routine of structured, sit-down family meals and snacks reassures children that they are loved and that will be provided for - nutritionally and in all other ways.

Which Results Inspire You The Most?
Dinner doesn’t have to be a daily frenzy!
I wasn’t enjoying the process of getting dinner on the table every day.
New perspective! It doesn’t have to be roast beef with all the fixings (but it can be), I can enjoy the process and dinner doesn’t have to be a daily frenzy.
---- Christianne W.
We've been eating together at the table for the first time in years...
I was overwhelmed with options. Cleaning out my pantry and fridge to just stock what I actually use has been a relief.
I learned to KEEP IT SIMPLE and I loved the meal plan typing - I'm a Semi. We've been eating together at the table for the first time in years with food that most everyone likes off of our meal queue.
---- Ashley H.
Take the chance to transform the dinner experience at your house!

MEET YOUR DINNER TOUR GUIDE
Hey there, I'm Claire.
Welcome to my kitchen, it's my happy place. By day I’m a cookbook author and cooking teacher, Cityline and CBC Radio expert. At night I cook at home with my sweetheart Michael, who eats everything, and our little boy Thomas, who does not!
Home cooking should be easy, delicious and fun, and that's what I'm here for.
I’ve been in the food business for 20 years, as a restaurant cook, baker, cooking teacher, test kitchen manager and restaurant critic. I ended up as the Food Director at Chatelaine. Now I spend my time empowering people to cook at home so we can all lead happier, healthier lives.
My first book, Uncomplicated: Taking the Stress Out of Home Cooking, set out to prove that cooking doesn’t have to be difficult to be delicious.
My second book, Dinner, Uncomplicated: Fixing a Delicious Meal Every Night of the Week is focused on making the daily dinner ritual easier, faster and less stressful. It’s a deep-dive into how–and why–making dinner can be the highlight of your day.
Kitchen Uncomplicated was designed to take everything I know about food and cooking and help you actually make dinner stress-free and enjoyable. I'd love for you to join me!
