Easiest Fondue Night!

Easiest Fondue Night / Bev Cooks

MORE LIKE FUNDUE. (oh please, you 100% saw that coming.) Baaaaack in the day, when Aaron and I were freshly married and living in our downtown loft in Kansas City and I had a good tight neck, we hosted annual Christmas Fondue parties. Like, every year for YEARS. For maybe three years. So not every […]

Chickpea Shawarma Flatbread

Chickpea Shawarma Flatbread / Bev Cooks

Am I the only one who desperately wants to pet those little chickpeas and call them Frank? This appetizer! First of all, I can’t take credit for it. It’s not mine. But I did inhale 5/8ths of it in 12 minutes flat. Does that count? My sweetie pie/travel partner gal friend Sonja of A Couple […]

pies for days

FeeeeeeeeeeeeRILLY DEE DO DAY. I’m warning you now, today’s Flotsam is basically one Herculean poll. I mean, POOOOOOLLLLLLLL-ah! It’s what I do leave me alone. First up!

snow gremlins forever

Fmmmmmmmmusay! I mean Frilay. Frimay. Friqay. Fribay. Friday. I MEAN, I just think a boob reduction should be an at-home kit. You’re like, “What is happening is right now.” I’m not talking about a boob JOB, those should be at the doctor. But if you want to reduce them? Totally an at-home kit. Okay, maybe […]

Somen Noodle and Tofu Soup / Bev Cooks

We haven’t slurped enough this year. And this one goes out to my vegetarian peeps! Well, minus the whole chicken stock and eggs thing, but you get the point. I made this soup on a whim a couple of weeks ago, because I spotted these thin, dainty white noodles wrapped in crepey black ribbon at […]
