Our Story


Tamera Valentine, Founder

Tami Valentine loves to cook and always has, but with a family of 5 and a full time job, cooking was becoming less of a joy and more of a chore. She decided to create a plan that would organize her time and not break the budget.
After months of compiling, she created You Can be a Cook; a meal planner that is about the love of sharing healthful, delicious food, efficiently prepared while entertaining options that won’t break your back or your budget. Singles, couples, families or organizations can all benefit from a convenient, creative and delicious meal plan.
