Home Grown and Woman Owned

The NoTime2Cook story began as Karen Kurr prepared her Cajun and Southern family favorites then sold them at local farmers markets. Today, you will find her classic Southern dishes in over 200 Kroger stores and independent retailers as well as her online store.

Karen began NoTime2Cook in her family kitchen, and later added a commercial kitchen to her home.  From there, she took over her daughter’s bedroom, her husband’s office, the sunroom, and the garage. As her hobby became a business, Karen moved production out of her home and into a USDA food plant.   As a certified Woman Owned Business, she qualified for low interest loans through the Mississippi Development Authority.

From Karen’s Chicken Pie to her mama’s Chicken and Dressing, each NoTime2Cook dish is cooked from scratch using whole food ingredients.  Karen is passionate about food, entrepreneurship, and bringing families back to the dinner table.  When Karen isn’t cooking, she is usually sharing her passion with others.
