Welcome! So happy to meet you…

I’m Ruthie!

I’m the creator of Cooking with Ruthie, and I love to bring the joy of cooking to your kitchen and inspire joy in life by sharing Recipes, Travel, & a variety of Etceteras! As a classically trained Chef, who graduated with a degree in the culinary arts, there’s nothing I love more than bringing the world to people’s kitchens!

I share international recipes, that are approachable, with easy to find ingredients bringing happiness to foodies everywhere (and wanna be foodies, too)! 😉 I hope you are inspired to create in your kitchens, explore the world, and find joy in all the many aspects of living with me! 

In 2011, I (Ruthie) began creating Cooking with Ruthie with the desire to share my love of recipes, travel, & a collection of life’s etceteras!  In the fall of 2013, I enrolled in the culinary arts program at a local university, which opened my eyes to International Cuisines.  I travel the world and find joy in international flavors, cultures and experiences, which I then love to share with you in our Culinary Journey around the World!

Culinary Journey around the World highlights:

Chinese Pickled Vegetables Recipe

Irish Coffee with Baileys and Kahlua Recipe

Cuban Rice Recipe

Mediterranean Couscous Salad & Catania, Italy

Irish Soda Farls Recipe

Beginning Culinary School at 40 years old was a little bit overwhelming at first; however, the depth of knowledge I gained throughout this experience is something I will always be deeply grateful for! 

A quick look at posts from Culinary School:

Back in 2011, Cooking with Ruthie was first inspired by our Gram’s 1960’s cooking show, Cooking with Louise.  The magic of CWR all began with our Family Favorite Recipes.
