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 […]

Simple Blueberry Galette / Bev Cooks

But with cream cheese, LOVAHS. Look at me all ragin’ summer like with these burstin’ berries tucked into a golden brown crackly pie crust. And you know what, we’re even GROWING berries in our garden, but all the *&*# birds yoink them just as and before they ripen. I’ve eaten approximately ohhhh let’s see . […]

Chocolate Chip Ricotta Loaf / Bev Cooks

I baked! With a cheese! Which is super popular apparently. And holy loafers I’m a changed woman. Because you know I’m not a baker. I don’t bake. I have one bread that I make like a maniac, but outside of that I’m a baby mouse lost in a chimney. (<–it’s a thing.) But there was […]

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 […]

How to Survive an Indoor Toddler Craft Party / Bev Cooks

YES THAT IS GLITTER, mamas just take a deep breath. So yeah. We totally got a jump on Valentine’s Day crafting like two weeks ago because the kids WILL NOT stop singing Christmas songs. Is this happening to anyone else? Seriously, all I hear all day long, “AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR POOP.” Mind […]

No-Churn Rocky Road Ice Cream

No-Churn Rocky Road Ice Cream / Bev Cooks

AS IN, you can make this today or right now. Listen, it’s the second half of the summer. The heat and humidity have maliciously teamed up to make every waking second of our lives A YUCKY, SLOPPY, STICKY LIVING HELL. Revenge? Now traditionally, I do know that rocky road ice cream simply consists of chocolate […]
