Holiday Gift Guide 2023!

Farmer's Market calendar / bev cooks

It’s here! And hopefully early enough that you have plenty of time to forget I posted it. Ha! Oh. I’ll keep this simple. About twenty items that I’ve loved forever or am currently loving and/or both. Let’s rock. Ahhhh the Madewell Transport Tote. I’ve had mine for quite a few years and it just gets […]

Eureka Springs / Bev Cooks

Frrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrri need help. (shocked, you are?) We need to discuss carpet cleaner. Like a rug cleaner. Like the one directly below my house shoes right in this instant permeating dog piss up into my nostril caverns like a middle finger of doom. (I feel great why do you ask?) Charlie knows better, yes. But she’s […]

Soupy White Beans and Mushrooms

Soupy White Beans and Mushrooms / Bev Cooks

Absolute side dish HEAVEN. I dare you to argue. Thing is, it’s mostly vegetarian. I’m saying mostly because I don’t want the world coming at me for the chicken stock. So swap in some veggie stock and you’ve got a fabulous vegetarian slurpy situation. Also look how rustic it is. It’s my entire means for […]

Baked Burritos

Baked Burritos / Bev Cooks

Winter dinner coming at ya! (really an anytime dinner, but we’re feeling cozy, okay?) Sometimes these are called Wet Burritos which intensely grossed me out. We’re calling them baked. Baked burritos. With ground turkey and refried beans and aromatics and sauces and cilantro and a bit of our blistered soul. I feel like you’ll really […]

Creamy Baked Cauliflower

Creamy Baked Cauliflower / Bev Cooks

Okay, I had an entire post written out yesterday, but it completely disappeared. CANNOT remember what I said, so here are the photos and the recipe and I’ll let you at it! No words? Probably a dream come true for most. Let’s test this out. Will you comment and let me know it worked?! Also […]

fall tree / bev cooks

Frrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrah! tah! sa! ma! da! You want to know what else I can’t stand? (I’m feeling fine! Why do you ask?) SEEING SOCKS. Like out of a tennis shoe. Poking out like a little nosy turtle head. Nerp. I know it’s trendy. I know it’s cool with the Gen Z, but they’re wrong. I can’t […]

Monthly Mixtape: All The Vibes (Again!)

Monthly Mixtape: All The Vibes (Again!) / Bev Cooks

Hey-ohhhhh, November! I’m giving you guys a repeat. We’re in that season of life of WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS. New furnace. (ouch) Sick dog. (she’s all good.) Wonky TV. (found a janky solution for now.) Dead car (officially car shopping and I hate it.) But! – I’m not naturally a complainer, just explaining why […]

tree and leaves / bev cooks

Frrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeedeeeeleeeemeemmmeeemmemee. What kind of retinol do you use? Like at night. What brand? What percentage? What formula? What voodoo potion of yesterlore of the ancient tales of yonder? Is that the way you say it? I ask because I was in the middle of a little pumpkin enzyme facial yesterday, and the lady goes, “Honey […]

Sort of Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

Sort of Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup / Bev Cooks

Okay. I say “sort of” because there are three cups of cream in this! THREE! THA-REE. We’re fine. It looks way brothier than I anticipated, but it was still heavenly we’re wrapping our heads (and mouths) around sort-of creamy chicken noodle soup. And it’s basically French because there’s tarragon in it. Ha! Never mind. Let […]

Baked Brie with Pecans and Rosemary

Baked Brie with Pecans and Rosemary / Bev Cooks

New obsession if you don’t mind me saying. Everyone loves a baked brie. Name someone who doesn’t lose their sh*t over a baked brie. (We’re leaving Aaron out of this situation.) Ya can’t! We’re into baked bries. Some are wrapped in puff pastry, others are baked as is and get draped with various sweet or […]
