Why does "niet" not come after the verb? Can you also say "Ik kook geen het"? Does "geen" always come before and "niet" come after? I am not clear on this. Feedback would be appreciated. Dak u wel.

No, "Ik kook geen het" is not correct Dutch. Here's https://www.duolingo.com/comment/3734833 a good reference about when to use 'niet' en when to use 'geen' taken from the Duolingo Dutch Grammar section.
