I’m not going to bore you to death over my love for tomatoes (the perfect food!), but just look at this. Summer is coming, and while I’m forever a die-hard lover of fresh tomatoes marinated in oil with garlic and basil and red onion (how can you not make your entire life about that), this […]

Gruyere and Herb Puff Pastry Twists / Bev Cooks

Twists! Made out of PUFF PASTRY. Is this heaven? Me thinks yes. Not only are we snacking on puff pastry twists, they’re stuffed with gruyere cheese and garden herbs and Everything Bagel seasoning. Brunch just got a facelift. And you know what, these don’t even have to be brunch focused. Let’s call them an anytime […]
