Hi, and welcome! I’m so excited you’re here. I launched The Cookie Rookie in 2013 because in a flurry of anxiety I realized I didn’t know how to cook, anything! I had just gotten married (and was over 30!), and the idea of cooking for one, let alone two, was terrifying. Even chopping an onion seemed overwhelming. With the help of my Mom I started documenting my journey to learn how to cook, and in the process conquered the kitchen. I realized that cooking can be so much easier and more fun than I ever imagined. If I can do it, you can do it!

Here on The Cookie Rookie you’ll find over 1000 SIMPLE recipes, everything from dinners to cocktails. I strive to keep cooking engaging and delicious, while fast and easy. If you’re wanting to learn how to cook, or just want some quick meals to have in your back pocket, this is the place for you.

If this is your first time here, be sure to browse our Recipe Index to find all the inspiration you need to jump in and get cooking. From appetizers to desserts to cocktails to mains, we have you covered. We promise we will make it as painless as possible. Enjoy!

Meet Becky

I’m a wife and mother (1 cute baby boy, 1 huge dog, 1 fat cat) living in Saint Louis Missouri. I always dreaded being in the kitchen, until I realized that I was standing in front of my passion and didn’t even know it. I didn’t pick up a pot or pan until after my 30th birthday, so if I can learn, so can you. In my spare time I love watching reality tv, photography, all things animals, and wrangling our son Henry. As my grandpa would say, “This is living!”
