    Yeah, 'cause you said that you cooked everyday. So, I just thought that I would come by and try your cooking.

    Are the sentences above correct?

    In terms of grammar and usage they are pretty well perfect. I prefer every day to everyday. Also I have a small difficulty in imagining who you might say this to.

    Not if written like that, no.

    The first 'sentence' has no main verb. What's the reason for 'Yeah'?

    Change the full stop after 'every day' to a comma; change 'So' to 'so' and delete the comma after it.

    Note to other students: 'cause is an informal abbreviation of because.

    I think you mean "You said that you cooked every day, so I just thought that I would come by ..."?
    In that case 'cause should be deleted, right?

    I think 'cause' can stay and you can take 'so' out also.

    As you've already been told, 'every day' should be two words and there should be no comma after 'so'.
