Hi there, thank you for visiting Handy Cookbook!
My name is Cole, and I am a food blogger based in Arizona. In 2022, I got married to my beautiful wife Makenna, who is a nurse. She has a crazy schedule, and with our plans to have kids soon, I knew that one thing that was making our life harder was not knowing how or what to cook. We found ourselves eating out more often than we wanted to, and when we did cook, it was usually something basic and uninspired.

I learned in the past that wherever you want to improve most in your life, you should direct the most attention. So, I started a food blog to make cooking meals for the family easier, healthy, and enjoyable for anyone, no matter their skills in the kitchen.

My passion for food started when I was young. I first began with a love for baking. I really enjoyed making special cakes for birthdays. Whether it be a Cinderella cake for my mom, a Minions cake for my cousin, or even a Peppa Pig.

As I got older, I started tackling family dinners. I began learning how to cook chicken, pasta, and a bunch of different vegetables. I loved the process of trying new things and learning from my mistakes. And the mistakes only made the successes taste even better!

I started my food blog with the goal to create a space where people can come to learn how to cook healthy and delicious meals for their families. I believe that everyone can learn how to cook, and my recipes are designed to be easy to follow, even for those with little to no experience in the kitchen.

My approach to cooking is simple: use simple ingredients, cook with love, and don’t be afraid to experiment. I love to create recipes that are easy to make, nutritious, and packed with flavor. From healthy breakfasts to yummy coffee to full family dinners, my blog has something for everyone.

One of my favorite things about blogging is connecting with other food enthusiasts. I love to share tips and tricks with my readers and get feedback on my recipes. I am always looking for new ways to improve my cooking and create recipes that people will love.

Aside from cooking, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, and exploring all that life has to offer. I also love to experience new cultures and cuisines. I believe that food is a universal language that brings people together, and I am always excited to try new dishes from around the world.

In conclusion, my food blog is a reflection of my passion for cooking and my desire to share that passion with others. Whether you are a seasoned cook or a beginner, my recipes are designed to help you create healthy and delicious meals that your family will love.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me, and I hope you find inspiration in my recipes!
