Garlicky Zucchini Cheese Crostini

Garlicky Zucchini Cheese Crostini / Bev Cooks

Um, hello yes, goodbye forever. CROSTINI. Talk about some major summer noshies, guys. It’s that kind of snack that’s like, obnoxiously balanced. And EASY. Ugh, so easy.

These have Roth’s insanely delicious […]

Anytime Yogurt Carrot Muffins / Bev Cooks

AS IN, I BAKED A MUFFIN. There is one thing I have surely learned on this month-long relocation. (BESIDES ALL THE THINGS) And I knew it and practiced it before, but it is now so ingrained in my day-to-day, small-humans-all-around-me-all-the time-so-help-me-God life. SNACKS. Have snacks.

THEY WORKED. The gougères that I was having a mammoth anxiety attack over before I even started making them. THEY WORKED! What’s a gougère? It’s a French cheese puff! A pastry of sorts. Savory.

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 […]
