You've probably learned to use the word "cook" to describe preparing food. But you can also use "make".
"Make" is a more general term, because "cook" should only be used to describe making food using heat. So you can "cook" pasta or "make" pasta, but it's odd to "cook" something like a sandwich. Instead, say:
I'm making a sandwich. You want one?
You can "make" meals:
Do you want me to make dinner?
Or drinks that require some preparation:
I'll make some tea.
