happy hour / bev cooks

Faaaaaarrrrrraaaaaaaarrrdaaaaaaaar. Lavender Haze. (I warned you this would be the first thing we talked about. Don’t x out.) Also today’s Flotsam is p u r e unadulterated pop culture, nostalgia and makeup, so don’t expect the earth’s gravitational pull this morning. Or perhaps expect it more. Did you watch? Watch the video. Go watch it. […]

Spinach and Pork Meatball Subs

Pork and Spinach Meatball Subs / Bev Cooks

Okay, we might have a bit of a Dr. Seuss situation on our hands here. Because these meatballs are green, bruh. And in the best way. I wanted something substantial. Something with guts. And blanketed under 13 mountains of cheese. And what I came up with was meatball subs. But with pork. And so much […]

Creamy Beef Ravioli Soup with Kale

Creamy Beef Ravioli with Kale / Bev Cooks

Soup! The ultimate throw-together slurpy sitch. This one here is going to do you so, so right. Savory beef ravioli meets silky kale meets a luxurious creamy fire-roasted tomato base. Hulz yuz. (<–not cool?) But listen, this isn’t just a bag-ripping, can-opening operation. We’re dicing some onion and garlic so simmer down. Also, let us […]

FRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrr. r r r r r r r r r aaa-hah. You know when you get an Amber Alert on your phone, and it’s that jarring alarm buzzing sound that rips you from whatever current reverie you were nesting in? And you attempt to grab your phone, knocking over 17 water glasses, 37 books, and […]

Rice and Bean Enchiladas

Rice and Bean Enchiladas / Bev Cooks

Now thiiiiiis I’d totally call a throw-together meal. Totally. Totes. (<-ew) I just realized no one says “totes” anymore. How terrific is that? Okay, this is completely vegetarian, so if you’d like to slip in some chicken or steak, absolutely fine. But as is like this, is magic in itself. Also I should tell that […]

Crispy Chicken with Curly Pasta and Fresh Tomatoes

Crispy Chicken and Curly Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes / Bev Cooks

It’s been a while since we’ve had a good ol’ chicken and pasta dish, hasn’t it? Well now’s the time. Okay remember how I talked about “throw-together” meals? This is not one of those. Ha! You COULD buy some fried chicken tenders at your grocery store and skip the frying all together. Then it would […]

living room / bev cooks

Frrrrrrrrudeedooodedodetoo! We need new kid beds. Beds for the kids. Like, bad. Badly. Bad and badly. They’ve each slept in matchstick boxes (those cute little ikea beds) since they were around two years old (and they work!), and I’ve been avoiding the subject for about a year now, waiting until one of them starts complaining […]

candle / bev cooks

A gift guide . . . in January? Naw. Let’s think of this as HYGGE SEASON INSPO. All caps necessary. Also I don’t have a recipe for you so this is what you get. Ha! Oh. Perhaps you got a little Christmas money that you’re sitting on and need help in deciding what to get. […]

kids and a horse / bev cooks

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFr eeeee delelelelele! It’s Will and Natalie’s birthday! NINE. NIIIIINE. How this happened is beyond me. Besides the whole time continuum thing. It’s so surreal. To see their faces and bodies start to change every so slightly. Taller. Lankier. The bigger teeth filling the awkward gaps in their mouths. Less cheek. More jaw definition. More […]
