Hi there! I’m Aileen Clark.
I am the founder of Aileen Cooks and creator behind all of the recipes and projects on this website. My mission is to connect with other moms through delicious recipes, projects, and family-friendly travel.
I have published two cookbooks, The “I Love My Instant Pot” Affordable Meals Recipe Book and The “I Love My Air Fryer” Affordable Meals Recipe Book. My third cookbook is scheduled to be released in August 2023, The “I Love My Air Fryer” Comfort Foods Recipe Book. Learn more about my cookbooks here.
I started this blog after struggling to find myself as a stay-at-home-mom of two young children. I wanted to share delicious recipes, helpful homemaking tips, and fun projects with others while also having something that was for me.
I am amazed by how far this blog has come and am grateful for each and every reader who takes the time to read my posts, try my recipes, and share on social media.
This is my family. My husband, Sean, works hard every day to provide for our family. He is an amazing father. Watching him connect with our children makes me love him even more than the day I said: “I do”. We have four kids (youngest not pictured) and live in Northern California.
In addition to sharing new posts here 2-3 times per week, I love pinning new ideas on Pinterest, connecting with others on my Facebook Page, and sharing the personal side of Aileen Cooks on Instagram. Make sure you sign up for our newsletter, too!
