farrrrr EEE DEEEEEE. FELICITY’S HAIR. (I’m jumping right in.) She cut it. Yes this news is 18 years old. Remember, I was living under a giant (indie) rock back then. No TV, fresh out of college, starting my banking career, playing in a band, short bleached blonde hair, cut-up men’s Dickies in my wardrobe. SO […]

I know it’s an odd time of year to be posting lettuce wraps, with all the soups and creamy pastas and casseroles […]

Gnocchi and Chicken Sausage Soup

Gnocchi and Chicken Sausage Soup / Bev Cooks

Bappy Balemtime’s Bay! (yes I’m that troll who still says it that way.) I made you love soup! It’s love soup because you’re going to have a full blown heart attack once you find out what’s in it. Not because the ingredients are heart-attack inducing. I mean, they are. But not like, hospital-gown-open-in-the-back-see-your-bum-style. It’s more […]

fridAAAAAAAYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYAAAYAY. Do you want to hear a story about how I’m the worst mom alive? Of course you do, you live for this stuff.

Pasta Rings with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

Pasta Rings with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon / Bev Cooks

This is your second chance in life. And it involves carbs and bacon. And brussels sprouts, which is green, so it’s basically a salad. Meals like this govern my life. Approachable enough for a weeknight, but disguised as a pretentious, laborious weekend undertaking that makes you stabby. It’s quite simple really! And you can juggle […]

No-knead Bread

Fr                                                                                                                                   iday. So the other day I was texting with Jess. Not to be confused with JESS. One I salivate for, the other I salivate with. No no, Jess – my maj homegirl. My neurotic partner in crime. The only other person who uses as many exclamation points and all caps in a text as […]

Monthly Mixtape: Tonight Tonight Tonight

We won’t even talk about how January disappeared faster than a sack of bullets. We also won’t even talk about what that sentence even meant just now.       (photo via the interflex, but I tweaked it a little, because I just can’t let things lie.) Have you ever thought about HOW MANY SONGS have the […]

Zzzzzzzzzzzz. (This post is definitely in partnership with Dirty Lemon, but all ramblings and opinions are totally my own. I’m whispering this, so I don’t wake you. We coo?) Sleep. SLEEP. Sleep. Do you know this word I speak of? Ring any snooze buttons? Ah, you might vaguely remember this “sleep” thing. Long before your […]
