Eggplant and Beef Curry with Rice

Eggplant and Beef Curry with Rice / Bev Cooks

OKAY. I’m about to change your mind on eggplant. Because I know approximately 84% of you just read “eggplant” and knee-jerk threw your laptop into a goldfish pond. I know. But this is the thing (!) – we were at the Farmer’s Market a few weekends back, and you know how you always see those […]

Things are about to change for you, I can feel it. And taste it. Because this. THIS. It’s like, one step. Plus a few more. So like three steps total. And one step is pure weeping. You know I’m Queen Soup, don’t argue with me. This is going to be that soup that’s on the […]

Grass-fed Beef, Mushroom and Kale Lasagna

Grass-fed Beef, Kale and Mushroom Lasagna / Bev Cooks

With no-boil lasagna sheets! They’re no-boil. The sheets. I know everyone has a fave recipe for a killer lasagna. I ain’t trying to reinvent the casser-wheel. But! It’s winter and freezing and icy and slick and bitter and snowy and polar-y and your soul need layers and layers of cheese and carbs. True fact. So […]

Shepherd’s Pie Waffle Fry Stackers

Shepherd's Pie Waffle Fry Stackers / Bev Cooks

YES I’M THAT PERSON WHO PUT SHEPHERD’S PIE ON WAFFLE FRIES. (sorry to scream.) I think the question is, why wouldn’t we? Plus it’s been forever since I’ve had a good ol’ waffle cut fry, so the idea of a crunchy, baked carby canoe o’ bliss shoveling all that beefy shepherd’s pie filling straight into […]

Skillet Beef and Biscuit Pot Pie

Skillet Beef and Biscuit Pot Pie / Bev Cooks

This is winter in your mouth. Minus the snow. YOU GUYS. I keep checking our long range forecast, and there’s zero snow. Zilch. There WAS snow in it, but it vanished after being in the forecast for 12 minutes and I now want to cry. This is crap, MIDWEST. I demand snow. Anyway. Biscuits. You […]

Asian Beef and Cabbage

Asian Beef and Cabbage / Bev Cooks

This is one of those “let-the-farmer’s-market-guide-me” meals. Are you annoyed? BECAUSE holy hail. It is crazy. Simple and crazy. Not crazy like, “She’s got a knife in her purse!” or, “Is she really listening to Michael Bolton right now?” But crazy. So crazy that we’ve made it twice and I still want to punch it […]

Mexican Fiesta Bowls

Mexican Fiesta Bowls / Bev Cooks

It’s not what you think. This isn’t a taco salad bowl. Or a burrito bowl. Not really even a Straw Hats bowl. (even though it has fritos in it so don’t get all loco on me.) It’s a MEXICAN FIESTA BOWL – a) because that’s what my mom calls it, and b) apparently I used […]

Hobo Roasts (Rewind Recipe)

Hobo Roasts / Bev Cooks

It’s my first Rewind Recipe since FOR-EV-ERRRR! (<–name that movie.) PLEASE tell me you guys made Hobo Roasts growing up in the ’80s and ’90s. You didn’t fully experience the magic of that era unless you made these on the regs. While wearing jams and watching Fresh Prince of Bel Air, duh. We had them […]

Asian Steak Lettuce Wraps

Asian Steak Lettuce Wraps / Bev Cooks

There’s rice in it, too, so please don’t x out. Lettuce wraps! It’s been a while since I’ve made slash posted lettuce wraps. I always forget about these delightful canoes o’ savory bliss. I know it’s an odd time of year to be posting lettuce wraps, with all the soups and creamy pastas and casseroles […]

Hellooooo, slowcookerfrenchoinionpotroastovercreamypolenta lovah. Um, this meal is going to be your winter mouth canoe grub game changer. And I mean it. First of all, it’s slow cooker. Commence simultaneous clapping and sobbing. Second of all, it’s a giant slab of meato. Isn’t that neato? (sorry) Third of all, the words “French” and “onion” are involved, […]
