It’s wonderful to meet you!
Cooking with Ruthie had it’s humble beginning in the summer of 2011, when the desire to share the love of all things food could no longer be contained. The CWR blogging journey was inspired by Grandma Louise (Gram) and her cooking show in the 1960’s.

Ruthie grew up in the kitchen cooking with her Mom and Gram, where she developed a love of cooking and sharing recipes. From a young age she was interested in everything food and loved spending time helping, learning, and connecting in the kitchen. Ruthie looks back now with so many joyful memories of those times with both of them.
Ruthie’s oldest daughter, Madeliene Louise, joined the Cooking with Ruthie team in 2017. Since then, they’ve enjoyed creating and sharing recipes, travel, & a variety of etceteras together!
Hi! I’m Ruthie… the creative mind, chef, and founder of Cooking with Ruthie
I am passionate about loving life! I’m a chef who loves to travel and bring cuisines, cultures, and culinary adventures to your kitchen. I sit as alumni on the Culinary Arts Institute Board at UVU Culinary Arts School and enjoy cooking on FOX13 once a month. I have experience in food writing, recipe development, and food photography for fortune 500 companies such as Kroger, Starbucks Coffee, Overstock.com, and more. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah and am a mom to three fabulous children, two awesome son-in-laws, and an adoring “Gigi” to Carter, Charlie, and Brooks.
Hello! I’m Madeliene Louise…
Madeliene has loved to cook with her mom and grandmothers ever since she was a little girl!
She cherishes her many memories chatting, cooking, and learning from and with them. She now enjoys cooking for her little family of 4. Madeliene helped her mom, Ruthie, start Cooking with Ruthie in 2011 and joined the team full time in 2017. Madeliene is passionate about sharing real life, talking about mental health, and studying psychology. She is an aspiring psychologist working hard on her doctorate.
