Pasta Rings with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon / Bev Cooks

Approachable enough for a weeknight, but disguised as a pretentious, laborious weekend undertaking that makes you stabby. It’s quite simple really! And you can juggle […]

No-knead Bread

Fr                                                                                                                                   iday. So the other day I was texting with Jess.

We also won’t even talk about what that sentence even meant just now.       (photo via the interflex, but I tweaked it a little, because I just can’t let things lie.)

Salsa Verde Pork-Stuffed Poblano Peppers / Bev Cooks

…Covered in cheese. I forgot to mention that. They’re covered in a fat snuggle blanket of bubbly cheese. I’m completely dying over these stuffed peppers. Dying. If I could dance around in a circle and howl at the moon in a fit of BANANAS BEGGING, I’d so do it. They deserve it. However! I will […]
