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. You have crusty, garlicky baguette slices, more sautéed garlic, perfectly-seared zucchini rounds, topped with cheese shavings. But not just any ol’ cheese shavings. These have Roth’s insanely delicious […]

Caprese Tortilla Pizza Snacks

Caprese Tortilla Pizza Snacks / Bev Cooks

It’s less a snack, and more . . . a means of survival. I MEAN, it’s brutally hot out there. Highs in the upper 90s with a heat index of STOP IT. And you’re probably like, “No way am I turning on the oven, girlfriend.” I know. I’ve got you covered. But let’s talk about […]

Anytime Yogurt Carrot Muffins

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. Have so many snacks. Snacks on the counter, snacks in […]

Garlic and Chive Gougères / Bev Cooks

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. Life giving. And you know, I don’t know why I was so sissified to make them. They’re actually quite easy. You […]

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 […]

Puffed Rice Bars

Puffed Rice Bars / Bev Cooks

It’s still after school snack season, right? It totally is. I’ve been wanting to make something like these FOREEEVERRRR. (<–sandlot style) Little quick snack bars made with REAL BUTTER, honey, brown sugar, pinch of cinny, puffed rice, salty sunflower seeds, my entire face. Serious after school snack. They’re insano easy to pull together, too! Lemme […]

Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken Nachos

Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken Nachos / Bev Cooks

We’re going to pretend I’m super into March Madness right now. Because nachos! Nachos aren’t really even game food. I mean, they ARE. But for me they’re more like, get-in-my-face-all-the-dang-time food. I have a love/hate relationship with nachos. The LOVE part? Uh, how can one not appreciate a giant platter of crunchy carbs topped with […]
