I have been researching cool and easy CP's to grow and I haven't quite gotten help from any website. I was wondering if someone would throw out a few cool, big, and easy to grow carnivorous plants that I could order. Thanks.

The classic example is Drosera capensis. It's very easy to grow and has a reputation as a weed for spreading so readily. As long as you have a sunny window or grow lights it should be no problem. You may also want to look at the various forms of Drosera binata. If you're able to put a bit more care into watering, several species and hybrids of Nepenthes are quite easy, especially the two that non-CP nurseries often sell: Nepenthes x ventrata (often incorrectly labeled as Nepenthes alata) and Nepenthes 'Miranda.' They will prefer less light than a sundew.

If you live in a climate close to their native habitat, temperate species are also very easy to grow. Sarracenia especially can get quite large and showy and there are a wide variety of species and cultivars to choose from. Temperate sundews are also quite easy to grow in my experience but mostly smaller. Drosera filiformis is a larger variety to look into.
