About CooksRef

CooksRef.com was created by cooking enthusiasts frustrated with other low-quality cooking guides and information found online.

Welcome! My name is Christine, and I am one of those girls who never entered the kitchen before my marriage other than to open the refrigerator for the food.

One day, everything changed. I got married and was suddenly exposed to all about the kitchen. It was like a black hole for me. That’s when I started to learn about the ART of COOKING. 

That’s when I decided to experiment with different dishes and learn to use different appliances to help cook better. I decided my husband deserved better than hotel food and took the leap of faith!

During my journey, I took part in many online discussions. That’s when I realized thousands of cooking enthusiasts face all sorts of issues with finding objective, informational guides that are up to date.

I am not a professional chef by any means (But I would call myself a self-taught Cooking Prodigy). I have experience building editorial teams qualified to provide advice based on their practical experience, and that’s what I have done with CooksRef.com

Our mission is to help you become a better cook and start cooking like a pro! Here we talk about our kitchen adventures – good or bad- so you can laugh or two about it. So let the journey of mastering the ART OF COOKING begin.

A Little About Me

Christine McMullen  – Founder and Chief Editor

I am incredibly passionate about cooking & food hacks. I have an irrational love for all things breakfast and am especially obsessed with pancakes.

My favorite book is The Help – and it’s also my favorite film. I adore the color yellow but love wearing white the most. In a perfect world, every item of clothing I own would be from Madewell. I drink hot chocolate every day. I collect cookbooks and protein bars.

I am a natural hoarder but a clean freak at heart – it’s an interesting combination that mostly involves shoving things out of sight so it all *appears* super clean.

The best trip I ever took was going to Italy with my dad when I was 16. If I could have anyone’s singing voice it would be Sara Bareilles’, though when I was a teenager I used to pretend I was Regina Spektor and dance around with red lipstick in my bedroom.
