About

We believe that

  1. Anyone who can follow directions can cook, and
  2. Good food can be made simply.

That’s why this blog exists. We wish we had fancy kitchens with pre-measured glass bowls containing a zillion ingredients, but we don’t. We have simple means but big dreams.

This blog highlights our favorite recipes, dishes that are both super good and super simple, requiring just a few common ingredients and basic cooking skills. So whether you’re a novice or Alton Brown, hopefully you can find something you like on this site. And for those of you who have surpassed novice-hood, check out the Uncommon Food tab for splendid meals that are just a little more complicated.
