Turkey Pesto Meatloaf

Turkey Pesto Meatloaf / Bev Cooks

This is summer’s way of allowing us comfort food. BECAUSE THAT THING IS PESTO PACKED. (sorry to scream.) This is a recipe I’ve had in mind since January. But it had to be basil pesto, and it had to be fresh from the garden, GOSH DARNIT. And I can honestly say, it was even more […]

Chicken Spring Rolls

Is it obnoxious to post spring rolls a month before spring? I’m pretending that you’re shaking your head so hard your eyeballs are loosening. Spring rolls! How can you not? They’re spring rolls. With GROUND CHICKEN. But let me just say right here and right now, swap in pork or beef if you want. If […]

Me also thinks that it’s probably the grossest […]

Linguine with Pesto and Seared Scallops

I don’t even know where to begin. And that frightens you, doesn’t it? As you can see, I have zero process shots. Or as my brain likes to Sean Conneryize it, “zhero proshesh shotsh.” But I can explain! (the no shots, not the Sean Conneryizing) Remember the video that we shot at my house a […]

Penne with Trapanese Pesto

trap10

No that does not say TRAPEZE. But the weird thing is, the little penne pastas kind of look like little trapezes, don’t they? And I didn’t even plan that. THE STARS ALIGN ON THIS GLORIOUS DAWN, Y’ALL. Trapanese pesto is yet another Lidia-inspired recipe. And yes, I’m completely obsessed with her, thanks. I think it’s […]
