IN short: text me and i’ll tell you what to cook

  • Have you got a bunch of random ingredients in your fridge and pantry and
    NO IDEA
    what to cook?

  • Are you second guessing what the best way to cook an ingredient is?

  • Do you have guests coming over and need some tried and tested recipe inspiration to impress.. but also keep it simple.

  • Need a kick up the butt to get your sh*t together in the kitchen?

  • Want me on speed dial for when the wheels fall off and you forget everything?


how it works

When you sign up, you’ll get access to me via Voxer (it’s a Walkie Talkie app).

Ask your question (via voice or text).
For example: Hey Lou, I have chicken breast, cauliflower and basmati rice. What can I cook for dinner for 2 adults and a 1 year old? I’d like leftovers too.

I will reply within 2 hours of your text (usually faster). The Hotline Dins service is available between 10am – 5pm per day, Monday – Friday.

Replies will be quick and punchy. They’ll comprise of either:

  • Links to recipes (lunchladylou.com.au or from blogs) OR

  • A typed recipe reply (this is me typing a recipe in reply to your message) OR

  • A voice message from me OR

  • General recipe outline. EG: Pan fry chicken breasts 5 minutes each side on a med heat, put lid on and leave for 10 minutes, prepare an oil with garlic and oregano mix through chicken, squeeze with lemon.

This isn’t a private cooking class, it’s for quick support. If you don’t feel comfortable chopping an onion, check out Kitchen Mojo private classes for more support.

This service includes support for 1-2 meals per day. There’s no cap on replies, however if you’re taking the piss or not taking ownership, I’ll cut you off for the day. These terms are open to change and will reflect within 7 days of member notification.


HERE’S AN IDEA OF QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE

  • What should I cook for dinner, I have beef strips, sweet potato and wraps. I’d like it to be dairy free.

  • What’s the best way to cook onions?

  • Is there a way I can meal prep a whole chicken for the week?

  • What tomatoes are the best in a salad? Do you have a tomato salad recipe?

How I cook

I am a self taught cook. Everything I know if from pure experience. It used to take me 3 hours to make corn fritters. I know how to teach people because I was once you.

I have zero formal cooking training. I’m a Certified Health Coach and Certified Nutrition Consultant specialising in Postpartum Nutrition and Babies.

My recipes are featured in Vogue Australia, Harris Farm, Body + Soul and more.

Buzzfeed named me one of the top 12 Entrepreneurs to watch out for.

I believe that home cooking is essential for life. Nothing annoys me more than people whinging about having no time to cook. It’s not true, it’s an allocation of time and priorities. Of course life happens, like kids and jobs and stuff, but do you really want to stay a victim to your circumstances?

I believe in vegetables, grassfed meat, pasture raised chicken, the best quality dairy, nuts, seeds, sourdough, foccacia, pasta, balance. I’m not free of anything, but I’m never going to support vegetable or seed oils and if I can find a substitute for white sugar, I will.

I believe in taking care of yourself and voting with your dollars daily by choosing where you shop and what businesses you support.

I believe that everyone can cook, but a bunch of Marketing people have sold us a big lie that cooking is hard or messy.

I started a catering business with really not enough experience, but I did it anyway. It turned out to be the beginning of everything for me. I no longer offer that service, I’m more interested in infiltrating the homes and hearts of everyday people who long to find their Cooking Mojo but haven’t found the right person to help them yet.

I believe recipes are wonderful tools, but are the reason so many of us suck at cooking and get stuck daily. We follow someone else’s rules and hand over our power.

When I was 21 I proudly declared that when I grew up I wanted to be an Italian Nonna.

I always carry lemons in my bag. When my friends think of me, they think of lemons.
