Buffalo Chicken Hoagies

Buffalo Chicken Hoagies / Bev Cooks

Because buffalo. THIS is a total hack meal. Especially on school nights. Hack hack hack. But it doesn’t feel like it because of the thinly sliced red onion, bacon love notes, baby crumbles of blue cheese and whispers of cilantro. But it is. It’s all a hack. Let me show you the hacking ways. It’s […]

The Easiest Fresh Pasta

The Easiest Fresh Pasta / Bev Cooks

And you don’t even need a machine! (besides your miiiiiiiiieeeeend) The other morning I was flipping through an old magazine in one of those teensy, stale claustrophobic waiting rooms, purple half-gown draped over my shoulders before proceeding to get my chee chees flattened to crepes, (<–life of a 40-year old) when I noticed a torn […]

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 […]

Daffodils in the snow

FRIDAYEEEEEAAAAEEEEAAAAEEEEEAAAAAAY. Tell me about matcha tea. Is it a bunch of hocus pocus mumbo jumbo?

Green Spring Breakfast

Green Spring Breakfast / Bev Cooks

SPRING IS NEXT WEEK. (sorry to scream.) Do you remember in that one Gilmore Girls episode when Richard’s had a heart issue and he’s in the hospital, and Emily’s running around all distracted about FISH and the HOUSE and her JUMPSUIT and what not? And Lorelai’s all, “Mom, simmer it.” And Emily’s all, “WHAT, FISH […]

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 […]

FREEEEEEEDeh. Do you sing in your car? Like, do you sing along at the top of your lungs to Sarah McLachlan or Led Zeppelin or Blink 182 or whatever? OKAY BUT. Do you sing along at stop lights. Next to someone. Or do you stop singing all together because you’re afraid you’ll forget the lyrics […]
