Apple Almond Custard / Bev Cooks

I see you, September. There’s pie, yes. There’s a crisp. A crumble. A tart. Great, fabulous. But you have ever put a custard underneath your apples? Have you? Because you’re about to. But first let me admit something about apples, and I need you to hear me out. Don’t get mad. Here we go. Full […]

Mini Coconut Custard Pie

Mini Coconut Custard Pie / Bev Cooks

PIE! I made the pie again! But there’s a sad story. The sad story isn’t about me making the pie again. That’s not the sad part. I knew I’d have to make it again after I botched the crust the first time because I didn’t read the measurements correctly. And when you think about it, […]

Cardamom and Green Apple Puff Pastries / Bev Cooks

So I have a story. (also, dessert, yay!) The above is what happens when someone who’s very much not a baker decides she wants to take a stab at cardamom rolls because the book she was reading (The Scent Keeper, o m g) had a character obsessively making them for guests at her summer fishing […]

Mini Chocolate Mascarpone Cake / Bev Cooks

No the world did not end but yes I baked!! (!) A CAKE. AN ACTUAL LIVING CAKE. But it’s mini. And filled with mascarpone cheese. Because a) cute and b) you can’t argue with your inner raging soul fairies when they guide you to mascarpone. You just can’t. On top of that, it’s not that […]

Simple Peach and Pistachio Crisp

Simple Peach and Pistachio Crisp / Bev Cooks

We’re about to get so crispy right now. Do you know the difference between a crisp and a crumble? Because I didn’t, and totally had to look it up because I kept calling this a crumble when I was making it. And it’s not. A crumble has flour! A crisp – oats. NOW I’M SURE […]

Gingerbread Cookies with Simple Decorating

Gingerbread Cookies with Simple Decorating / Bev Cooks

Because I’m lazy and can’t bloody decorate a gingerbread man properly. That’s the full title. But look how cute! And EASY. That has to be key. If I’m sitting around with a piping bag, a glass of wine and a colossal lack of precision, I will straight up ruin Christmas. We can’t have that. So […]
