Hey there, I'm Sandy

CIA grad & Cooking Pro, and Mom to 2 girls

After spending 12 years cooking professionally in NYC, I became a personal Chef and food blogger but that didn’t quite connect with the calling on my heart–it was the teaching throughout that really made an impact. 

Now as a home cook myself, I can see which areas of my experience actually matter when cooking at home–

And now I want to share it with you.

My Motto:

Give a person a fish, and you feed them for the day. Teach a person to fish and you feed them for a lifetime.

  • Downloadable PDFs  ….(Value $49)
  • Question/comment section within the course platform 


Do I get to keep the videos?

Yes! Your one-time payment gets you access to all the lessons and any updates I make.

How much time do I need to devote to this?

As much or as little time as you like! Each video is under 12 minutes and the entire course is under 4 hours so you can go at your own pace and totally binge it if that's your thing.

I’m fairly good at cooking. Do you think I'd still benefit?

Absolutely. Cook Without Recipes will help you understand cooking better, narrow down your choices to reduce mental load and will help you cook freely without recipes.

I keep a vegetarian [or vegan] diet. Can this work for me?

Yes! While the majority of videos are demonstrated with meat, poultry or fish, I cover vegetables, grains, beans and pasta. The methods I teach can be applied to all foods.

I have a special diet [allergies, dairy-fee, gluten-free, Kosher]. Can this still help?

100%! This is the beauty of learning the cooking methods in detail and understanding substitutions–it allows you to cook for your needs irrespective of recipes! Technique is key.

It’s time to become a more confident cook!
