Welcome to Averie Cooks!

I’m Averie Sunshine and I’m so happy you found my site! I began blogging in 2009 as a way to share recipes, and what began as a little hobby, has turned into one of the best things I’ve ever done.

Sharing recipes, connecting with readers, making lots of friends along the way, and cooking up a storm has been so much fun. I post new recipes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Fast and Easy Recipes For Real Life

My recipes are geared toward real life and the average person who wants fast and easy meals, ready in under 30 minutes, and that taste amazing. 

You’ll feel proud serving my easy dinners and fuss-free desserts to your family and friends. I use common, everyday ingredients so you won’t be chasing all over town or spending an arm and a leg on specialty groceries.
