Salsa Verde Pork-Stuffed Poblano Peppers

Salsa Verde Pork-Stuffed Poblano Peppers / Bev Cooks

…Covered in cheese. I forgot to mention that. They’re covered in a fat snuggle blanket of bubbly cheese. I’m completely dying over these stuffed peppers. Dying. If I could dance around in a circle and howl at the moon in a fit of BANANAS BEGGING, I’d so do it. They deserve it. However! I will […]

Thoughts on This Whole Motherhood Business: Year Three

Thoughts on This Whole Motherhood Business: Year Three

Also known as, the year I turned to Botox. Awwww, would ya look at that? Such innocence, such sweetness, such unbridled sibling adoration and the tender formation of lifelong bonds. SUCH LIES.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef Melts

Slow Cooker Roast Beef Melts / Bev Cooks

Because melted cheese on shredded beef. The end. (Minus Aaron’s sad, soulless cheese-less versions. We’re learning to forgive him, right? Eh, we’ll try later.) I think a proper year needs a proper slow-cooker start, don’t ya think?! (<–name that movie, but with different words. like kite and tail.) A start that involves a massive hunk of […]

16 Favoritest Things in 2016

Wicked Good Slippers - L.L. Bean

Happy 2017! I think I already said that the other day, but I’ll say it again. Happy 2017! That probably makes three times now. Whatever. “People stopped saying “whatever” five years ago.” “Whatever. I’m outie 5000.” <–name that show. Before we get too nestled into the new year, I wanted to go back and give you my […]

Monthly Mixtape: Name That Movie

Movie kiddos

Lights..! Camera..! Favorite mixtape ever..! (p.s. That’s an old school movie projector toy in Will’s hand. He wasn’t wanting to be my director, though, so- no milk for him!) MOVIES. Favorite thing ever. They take us away to another place, another time, another era, another land. For roughly 90 minutes, we get to experience life […]

Why would someone do that to coffeeeeee?! The greatest body fuel of all time! (never mind water, leafy greens, all berries, whole grains, and other yawn-a-licious stuff like that.) But coffee! COFFEE. What is this, […]
