About

My name is Sarah Hartzell and I’m an Ohio native who now lives near Boston, Massachusetts.

My passion for cooking was stoked at an early age by my grandmothers. As a toddler, I would help them pit cherries for cherry pie. My technique has improved since then (I get significantly less cherry juice on the walls), and I continue to expand my culinary skill set. I love passing this knowledge and passion on to other home cooks.

The title for this blog comes from my love of simple techniques. While I have a kitchen full of cooking tools, I firmly believe that you can make wonderful and delicious food if you only have two knives and a pan.
