FRRRRRRRRRRRRRimuh! I mean day. Can you hear radio broadcasts in teeth fillings? You know, like when one “feels a storm brewin’” in their knee joints or their shoulder pins. Is it the same? I’m reading All The Light We Cannot See (first of all, I can already tell it’s going to be one of the […]

Cilantro Turkey Meatballs with Rice and Lime

Cilantro Turkey Meatballs with Rice and Lime / Bev Cooks

WARNING: this dinner contains cilantro. A lot of cilantro. AKA: the taste of dish soap to a bunch of you weirdos. (jk i love you) Proceed if you dare. Or just sub parsley because that’s super easy and this is amazingly tasty. With the cilantro, that is. Never mind. You know how much I heart […]

Monthly Mixtape: When Can We Go To A Concert Again?

Monthly Mixtape: When Can We Go To a Concert Again? / Bev Cooks

I am embarrassingly late with this month’s mixtape, but – better late than never! Right? Hello? . . . anyone?

Simple Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches

Simple Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches / Bev Cooks

Our new go-to bbq! And clearly you must know about it. The thing about it is, we’re not putting too too much focus on the pork. Which may cause some of you to violently throw your laptop into oncoming traffic or a lake. But don’t do that yet because once you see the sauce you’ll […]

Simple Fish Tacos with Radishes and a Greek Yogurt Drizzle

Simple Fish Tacos with Radishes and a Greek Yogurt Drizzle / Bev Cooks

And look, it’s Tuesday! Taco Tuesday. I didn’t even plan that. (no really.) Sometimes you just need fish in a taco. A flaky fish inside a toasted corn tortilla. And you need it topped with something peppery and crunchy. And drizzled in something tangy and bright. But it can’t take too long to make. And […]
