Welcome To Rachel Cooks!
I’m so glad you’re here.
On Rachel Cooks, I share recipes that are easy to prepare and most importantly, delicious. Most of them are healthy and wholesome, but in a relaxed way, because we all have enough stress in our lives.
I’m honored and excited that you’re here! If you need help finding a recipe or are looking for some inspiration, send me an email — I always respond personally!
About Rachel Cooks
Cooking can really feel like such a chore sometimes, can’t it? Suzie Homemaker is always making something gourmet in her gorgeous kitchen, you’re convinced that your kids might be the pickiest kids on the planet, you’re feeling the social media pressure to eat clean/paleo/keto/whole30/
It’s all just so exhausting, isn’t it? Add in the daily stresses of life in general, and it’s probably enough to make you want to throw in the towel and order carry out on a daily basis.
You guys…it doesn’t have to be like this. Life is complicated, cooking shouldn’t be.
I believe that you can put a great meal on your table without:
- doing dishes all night
- spending hours wandering the grocery store looking for some weird ingredient
- standing for hours on end in your kitchen when all you want to do is kick your feet up and relax for a second
It’s possible. And I’m here to help.
Let’s sit down at a virtual kitchen table and chat about this. I’d love to hear what you’re struggling with in the kitchen, and I’d love to help. It’s truly a joy to create recipes that make your life easier and more delicious.
If you are following a special diet for any reason, you can find also recipes categorized in my recipe index (by diet, occasion, ease of preparation, ingredient and more). Not all my recipes will be perfect for you (there are over 1,000 of them!), but there’s a really great chance you’ll find at least one that is.
NEW! Check out my other site, full of the very best breakfast recipes: Pancake Recipes!
About Rachel Gurk
Hi! I’m Rachel. I grew up cooking with my mom and I’m so excited to be able to share my recipes here with millions of people. I have over 12 years of experience in recipe development and testing. Each recipe on Rachel Cooks is rigorously tested to make sure it turns out perfectly for you. By schooling, I’m a Doctor of Physical Therapy, but that has now taken a backseat to sharing recipes on Rachel Cooks.
I’m married to a school superintendent and we live in west Michigan with our two precious kiddos, who I refer to here as E and N. E is 13-years-old and way too smart for her own good. N is 10-years-old and the funniest kid I’ve ever met. They both have severe food allergies; a topic and cause I’ve grown to be passionate about, for obvious reasons.
Between taking care of the kiddos and doing countless loads of laundry, I’ve somehow found the time to grow this site and share over 1,000 recipes since 2012. Nothing makes me happier than reading comments from readers like you saying your child ate broccoli for the first time because of my roasted broccoli recipe or that you’re sharing my taco pasta recipe with your coworkers.
Rachel Cooks has been featured on sites including The Huffington Post, Parents.com, Saveur, The Cooking Channel, and more.
