Join the Recipe-Free Revolution!

Are you ready to have some fun? Because you're about to learn how quick and easy it is to create yummy vegan meals your taste buds will love -- without using a recipe.

It's the way you've always wanted to cook and didn't know it!

Plus, we offer nutrition basics, weight loss tips, helpful how-to's and videos, eCourses, and even some vegan recipes -- because sometimes you just need a recipe!

Welcome to So happy you're here.   :-)

I'd be willing to guess that before you decided to change to a plant-based diet you popped into your kitchen, pulled out a few items, and got your meal on the table in a relatively short time.

But then you went vegan, and all hell broke loose, right?

"What should I cook?"

"Which recipes are good?"

"What are all these strange ingredients?"

"Will my family/friends like what I make?"

"And perhaps most importantly: Why am I talking to myself?"   :-)

Sassy the Vegan Coach

Hello, I'm your hostess with the mostest Patty Knutson, but my friends call me Sassy.    :)

I went vegan back in 1994 -- yes, that was a long time ago! So I understand EXACTLY what you are looking whether you are just starting out, have been around the block for a while, or are more "well seasoned".

And I'm here to help make the learning curve a little easier for you.

The First StepThe perfect place to start? Sign up for my free vegan cooking course that will help you get started with recipe-free cooking.

Plus, you'll get so much more out of our entire jam-packed-with-cooking-info website.   :)

Heart with quotes"I really loved the course. Also the videos are amazing. The way I cook now is so very different to the way I cooked before and my food tastes so very different. This course was truly amazing I would recommend it to all Vegans."
-- Audrey McQuade, Manchester, England, United Kingdom

What you'll learn in our course and throughout our entire website is how to once again have the know-how (and the courage!) to go into your kitchen, pull a few things out of the fridge and cupboards, and in record time have a meal on the table.

Only this time, all the ingredients are 100% vegetarian, natural, and based on whole foods.

We teach you how to cook in the real world -- where your time is precious and you need nutritious meals that won't take you an hour to make!

-- Antoine from Quebec, Canada

Sure we have some vegan recipes to share. But the main emphasis on our website is not to teach you how to follow a recipe -- there are plenty of terrific websites and cookbooks out there with delicious and fun recipes.

Instead, we're here to show you how to create that recipe from scratch.

Sound difficult?

Sound time-consuming?

What if I told you it's actually EASIER and FASTER to cook this way?

Well, it's true. I pinky swear!

How else do you think you'll get in and out of the kitchen in record time?

Don't worry; we'll be right here by your side holding your hand the entire time.    :)

All the vegan meals you make will be based on your favorite flavors so nothing goes in the dish you don't like. No more buying expensive ingredients you spend a ton of money on to use just once!

Plus, we have plenty of nutrition tips too. Because if the food you're eating isn't good for you, what's the point?

-- Jeni from Texas

By the way, absolutely everything you read about or learn here at this website comes from personal (or professional) experience.

So if I don't know something, I won't talk about it or recommend it. Period. Exclamation point!

Sassy's Signature

Heart with quotes"Today is my one year Veganversary. I have to thank you for providing so much helpful information on your website about how to actually choose, store, prep, and cook all of the beans, grains, and vegetables. You also taught me what I needed to have in my pantry so that I could prepare many basic vegan meals.

"It is because of the knowledge I gained from you, that for the last year, I've been cooking all of my meals from scratch and eating vegetables, grains, and beans that I never tried in forty years. I was able to make an immediate switch to veganism instead of a gradual change because of your website.

"Thank you for providing such a wonderful gift to us all!"
-- Jessica Rempuszewski Conwell, Sarver, Pennsylvania

"I hope you know how extremely helpful your site is. It's different than other sites....easy to read, understand, etc. Being vegan for 5 years, you get comfortable thinking you know most of it, but then a website like yours comes along and now I'm learning even more! Thanks again for all your wonderful info!"
-- Lynne S., Rockwall, Texas

"I just wanted to let you know that I have been trying my hardest to follow a vegan diet for 6 months and plan to continue that diet. I recently discovered your website, and it is just the thing I need to put everything in perspective. I was really getting frustrated with searching the endless sea of nutrition facts, recipes and just helpful information overall, but your site has really filled-in all the gaps.

"I just wanted to personally thank you for your the time and effort you have put into this website. It is simply a masterpiece."
-- Adam King, Florence, Alabama

"What I like best about your website and newsletters has always been your down-to-earth, never-preachy, always-patient presentation. You never take it for granted that your readers do or do not know something - you present information in a friendly, non-presumptious, non-condescending way, just as though you were talking to a best friend."
-- Susan Covington, Richardson, Texas

"Thank you for this site. I have been a vegetarian for over a year and am sick of hunting down cookbooks only to hope that the food comes out like it should. I like your approach of not using recipes as this is exactly what I have been trying to do lately. Just wanted to drop you a line to say that your hard work is appreciated!"
-- Flix K., Texas
