Freestyle Vegan Cooking?

Now if you've been hanging with us for a while...

...and taking our fun online vegan classes, you know we're all about FREESTYLE vegan cooking.

So if you're one of the pioneering home cooks who have joined us in embracing FREESTYLE vegan cooking (and MAN do we love you!), then you're going to find the bits of advice we share in our new blog to be incredibly helpful to you!

Freestyle vegan cooking is TASTY, EASY, INSPIRING, CREATIVE and FUN!

And if you're new around these parts...

...you might be asking "Sassy, what does it mean to cook FREESTYLE?"

Thought you'd never ask. :)

Cooking freestyle means cooking without a recipe to guide you.

Sound exciting? A little scary? Maybe a mix of both!

I understand completely.

Because when I went vegan all those years ago (1994) I depended on recipes.

I couldn't cook ANYTHING without a recipe! It always took such a long time to get dindin on the table.

It consistently felt like I was moving in slow motion.

Plus, I was getting really tired of the never-ending recipe search, making specific grocery lists and slogging my way through the recipe's instructions leading to (often times) a huge FAILURE of a dish.

It was just easier (and safer!) to make the same recipes over and over again. (Sheesh! Talk about sure-fire snooze material!)

Do you ever feel this way? Bored? Uninspired? As if everything is taking WAY too long?


Fortunately, I discovered the magic of cooking WITHOUT recipes.

And our motto of Freestyle Vegan Cooking was born.

We've been teaching this style of cooking for well over a decade!

It's quite exciting and I can't wait to share it all with YOU!
