Cooking For the Rest of Us

I went from clueless to cookbook author — and you can learn to feed your people, too.

We have a delicious mission here and it is this: We’re taking the overwhelm out of cooking and serving up practical ideas and tips and how-tos — and it’s going to be easy, entertaining, fun, and delicious, too.

Consider this Me Course your instructional Culinary 101 boot camp for doing better instead of defaulting to drive-thru and delivery.

We don’t need fanciness or credentials. As cooks, we just feed the people we love. That is the end of the formula. And I hope that is what you take from this course.


We’re focusing on basic skills, cooking essentials, flavor hacks, tips and tricks, meal prep and planning, and entertaining. It’s everything you could ever want. I’ve enlisted my friend, Bri McKoy, to cook with me and share all of her incredible, practical cooking and kitchen tips, too. She calls herself an accidental home cook and is also a blogger and author. She is the best. You are going to love her.

I also share a WHOLE list of full recipes with you, including:

  • Veggie Gratin
  • Braised Short Ribs
  • Roast Chicken
  • Homemade Pizza
  • Honey Mustard Salmon
  • Herb-Crusted Pork Tenderloin
  • Peppercorn-Crusted Beef Tenderloin
  • Taco Soup
  • Pulled Pork Sliders
  • And more!

We’ve also packed this Me Course to the brim with so many resources to help you make delicious food for your people. After all, this is a way we can love our people — and nourish our bodies, minds, and souls.

“Eating is the best prerequisite to being a cook, and love is the only prerequisite to feeding our people.”

This is cooking for normals.
