Cheesy Tomato and Crab Biscuit Cups / Bev Cooks

More tomato biscuits! But this time they’re not scones. They’re cups. Cuppies. Cups. We’ll say cups. And they have crab in them. Imitation! Look, your reaction to the lobster lettuce cups made it clear to me that we all seem to be on this side of snooty booty camp, so we’re having some more, man. […]

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 […]

Ricotta Dip with Honey, Lemon and Chives / Bev Cooks

Back with another side dish! Dip-style. And this one is an under-five minute no brainer. Zero cooking. Only spooning and snipping and drizzling and sprinkling.

It’s Dip Day! (<–not a thing) But it could be. This is one of those dreamy dips that sticks with you. It works best if you’d had a moment to chill it for a few minutes post blitzing so that it firms up, so try not to skip that part. The flavors are fire (apparently […]

Roasted Tomato Bruschetta

Roasted Tomato Bruschetta / Bev Cooks

Like winter bruschetta! Like the WINTER PIE. But toast. I’m trying to capitalize on winter right now, can you tell? This is what I imagine for your Valentine’s Day. Besides this playlist. And these gifts. This bruschetta! It’s a snack, but make it fashion. Roasted tomatoes and onions slathered in umami, over tangy but sweet […]
