Bagel Pizza Snacks

Bagel Pizza Snacks / Bev Cooks

“Snacks” being used loosely here. More like Bagel Pizza WAY OF LIFE. What happened was, one late afternoon last fall, Will was “STARVING, MOOOOOOM.” So I made him a quick bagel pizza (nothing new, I know), with pizza sauce and lunch meat (not reinventing the bagel wheel here), a few greens tucked in (sneaky like […]

Garlic and Chive Gougères / Bev Cooks

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 / 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.
