About Me

Hi, I’m Cheri and I’m so glad you’re here!


I started this food blog as a place for anyone who loves grilling, smoking, and all things outdoor cooking (like me).

I share the grilling and smoking recipes I have created and hopefully you’ll learn some new tips and tricks along the way.

Currently I have a smoker, Traeger Pellet Grill, a Blackstone Griddle, and propane grill and I use all of them quite often

I even wrote a cookbook for Traeger, which you can check out HERE 🙂

And my newest cookbook is perfect for home cooks, check it out HERE!

I started my food blog CooksWellWithOthers.com a few years ago where I share family meals, lots of air fryer and slow cooker recipes, and some pretty delicious appetizers and party food.

I was a second grade teacher for 20 years before I decided to focus on food blogging and recipe creating full time.

My family is the center of my world, and they highly approve of all the yumminess I create daily.

My children and grandchildren are amazing in every way, and I love spending time with them 🙂

My husband is wonderful, supportive, and quite the help when it comes to coming up with ideas for unique recipes (especially chicken wings!).

I’m excited to get grilling and smoking and creating some amazing recipes to share with you!
