2017 was a great year personally and professionally. Personally because of Mr. Henry being born last March, and professionally because of YOU! I can’t thank you enough for following along on The Cookie Rookie and supporting us in anything and everything. I have the best readers in the world and I couldn’t be more grateful. Sometimes as I’m in my little home studio taking pictures of FOOD for a living, I have to pinch myself. I get to be creative, eat tons of food for good reason :), and interact with fun people each and every day. THANK YOU! I hope you have loved the recipes that you’ve tried, and I hope you stick around and give more a chance in 2018!
I love to show people that ANYONE can cook delicious food for friends, family, or even just themselves. I certainly was so afraid to experiment in the kitchen even just a few years ago. If I can do it, you can do it! Thanks so much for following along :)

I’m super proud of this Loaded Cowboy Queso and it’s for sure one of my favorite recipes of the year. It’s so creamy, EASY, and loaded with everything that’s good in the world. This is the ultimate tailgating queso that stays a great consistency and is virtually fool-proof. Don’t mind if I do! GET RECIPE
If Creamy Chicken Soup is my fave soup, this Creamy White Chicken Chili with Cream Cheese is my 2nd favorite. (Why can’t I like the healthy soups without cream more?? OH WELL). This is so tasty and has just the right amount of spice. So warming! GET RECIPE
I love so much about this ONE PAN Chicken Parmesan Pasta. I love the cheesiness, how it’s made with ONLY 6 INGREDIENTS, and that it’s a favorite of both kids and adults alike. My picky eaters niece and nephew even gobble this up. YAY! GRAB RECIPE
This Creamy Caesar Chicken exploded in popularity the second I posted it and I was so excited, because I loved it so much when we made it. You can make it with as little as 3 INGREDIENTS and it’s sure to please. It can be your little secret just how easy this is. So much flavor for so little prep. GET RECIPE
I made and photographed this recipe back in 2014 and you could argue THIS is the recipe that encouraged me to keep blogging. Y’all just loved it so much. I mean I made it in 2014 and it’s on the top 10 list for 2017. It’s been pinned over 2 million times (!!!!). It’s Whole 30 approved and SOOOOO flavorful. Made in 30 minutes or less. What’s not to love? I can’t bring myself to do new photos of it because I’m so in love with these old pics still. Makes my heart happy. When we have people over for dinner, this is what I make 9 times out of 10. GET RECIPE
You guys love queso as much as I do. You guys are my people! This Restaurant Style Queso Blanco is always super popular around the Super Bowl and that makes me so happy. It’s definitely a favorite at our house. Get LOTS of chips because this goes fast! GET RECIPE
AND THE #1 RECIPE OF 2017 WAS…..
These tacos. They’re so loved and I’m so happy. I LOVE to hear how much they’re being made and devoured every week. You can make them in pretty much any flavor combo, but I’m partial to Spicy Chicken Tacos. I think I’ll make a batch to celebrate this top 10. THANK YOU GUYS! xoxo GET RECIPE
