Broccoli and Bacon Salad

Bacon and Broccoli Salad / Bev Cooks

This salad sounds like an oxymoron. Right?? Ha! Never mind. It’s a classic. It really is. The only thing I didn’t a little differently was to amp up my creamy dressing a bit. A ton of lemon juice + poppy seeds + Greek yogurt. I feel like you’re really going to be into this. Don’t […]

No-Churn Peach Ice Cream

No-Churn Peach Ice Cream / Bev Cooks

We all scream? We do indeed. And it’s no-churn which means this takes less than zero effort. Wahoo! (<–I never do that. Felt weird.) Remember back in 2018 when I made this No-Churn Rocky Road Ice Cream? Same thing, but with peaches. This one’s easier too, so get jazzed. La-heeeeet us peepeth. All (I think […]

Monthly Mixtape: Sun-Baked Legs and Buzzing Branches

August! It’s my birthday month so you’re obligated to read this post. (jk!) (I think.) Need some later-in-the-summer tunes? Because I have them. Oh do I have them. This month there’s no real theme, just some good vibey songs that hibernate in my heart, rumble around in splendor and govern my every move. But I’m […]

FFFFFFFFFFFFF aaaaaaahhhhhhrrrrrrrrrrrrrrederleedo. Okay, this is about to get ril gross, or you’re a completely normal person like me. Maybe. And it’s a poll, so saddle up. Do you separate your laundry? As in – do you separate your whites from your colors? OR do you separate your loads by people? (Bridget, I’m looking at you.) […]

Seared Zucchini with Pine Nuts and Mint

Seared Zucchini with Pine Nuts and Mint / Bev Cooks

Another summer side dish in our Summer Side Dish Series this summer of side dishes! (I can chill.) Took a brief hiatus last week for a little vacation (isn’t it obnoxious when people remind of you how you’re suppose to miss them?) but we’re back today, bruh! And I messed up this recipe. BECAUSE I […]

Lobster Salad Lettuce Cups

Lobster Salad Lettuce Cups / Bev Cooks

You’re either going to think I’m complete trash by the end of this post, or you’ll love meh with your entire blistered soul. We’re not going to talk about how everything costs one million dollars right now. It’s outrageously frustrating. So I say, when the times get stupid, we eat imitation lobster and love every […]

FRRRRrrrrrrrrRRRRRRrrrrrrRRRRRRRRRR ah dah. I’ve decided I’m not into clapping. Clapping my hands. Not into it. Not like, in general, but when a musician puts his/her hands above their hands holding the mic in a dramatic clap, asking the audience to clap along. Oh no. Please don’t. None of this audience can properly clap. Especially not […]

Caprese Scones

Caprese Scones / Bev Cooks

AS IN, cheesy tomato summer biscuits. Like, look at that cheese. These are going to ruin you so good, so pony up, pigeons. We’re making basic scones, but adding an obscenely vibrant caprese twist that will have your heads falling off. La-heeeeeeet us peepeth. I know it looks like a lot (it might not look […]

Radishes with Pesto Butter

Radishes with Pesto Butter / Bev Cooks

Veeeeeeery simple summer side dish comin’ at ya today. (<–not sure how I felt about “comin’ at ya.”) First of all, if you’ve never just casually snacked on radishes, what is your life? Crunchy, peppery, pungently satisfying. They’re like little mouth bombs of pleasure. AND THEN WE ADD IN PESTO BUTTER. We’re gonna need to […]
