In a trench coat. See how we do this? Let us peepeth. Six ingredients! I do feel an exclamation point […]

FRRRRRRRRRRR RRR rrrrrr rRrrrrRRRrrrrrr er der. Tell me, what was your VERY FIRST CONCERT? And how old were you? I can guarantee, you’re already substantially cooler than I am. I ask because we just bought tickets to see “Weird Al” Yankovic later this year and I’m going to explode. My 12-year old self is giddy, […]

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup / Bev Cooks

SA-LURP. I’m going to get through this blog post as quickly as I can, as I’ve started my official clear liquid diet in prep for my colonoscopy tomorrow, and looking at food is T O R T U R E. But we’re okay. I’m okay. You’re more than okay. Let’s peep this already. I added […]

Creamy Rosemary Shells

Creamy Rosemary Shells / Bev Cooks

First recipe of the year! And it’s creamy. You’re so, so welcome. And vegetarian. But I hadn’t planned it that way, truthfully. I was going to add chicken thighs, but when I cut into the package well within the sell-by date, the sme- you know what, I’m not going to talk about chicken smells on […]

FRRRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIDDDDEEEEEEEE Flotsam is back! (I’ve said that a lot this week.) Do you ever have that moment when you completely forget what to do with your hands? Or your fingers?

We’re back! I’m back! You’re back! Back back back! Let’s talk about book book books! (ha) Fifty. Fifty novels. I made my goal in the NICK of time on December 31st at 11am. (Not pm, you know I’m a snooze parade by 9.) Without a doubt, 2021 was a spectacular year of reads. Some better […]

Chocolate Ricotta Torte

Chocolate Ricotta Torte / Bev Cooks

Ricotta! Cheese! Cheese. It’s just great. I know you get (understandably) nervous when I bake. I get it. I do, too. But this turned out! It’s flourless, dense in a way, creamy in another, light in another, succulent in another, sinful in another. But don’t look at my cinnamon sprinkling abilities. It uh, got out […]

FRRRRRRRRalalalalaaaa la la la! I’m diving face first into an impending tinned fish obsession. You’re like, “I do not understand that sentence, nor do I want to.” Tinned fish. I’m getting into it. First of all, why wouldn’t I? Second of all, you do know what I’m talking around, right? There will be a small […]
