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 […]

Look who shows up the week before Christmas, eh? (it’s me.) Let’s not call this breakfast because I don’t feel like being severely judged today. Don’t ask me if I gave these to the kids in the am before school one day. Just don’t. We’re in a good place. But look at these! Festive little […]

And the ricotta is cracked! Like, for Halloween. I planned that. I planned the . . . cracking. I knew that would happen. No, I did. But aren’t they cute? Cracking aside, you’re going to obsess over the flavor because I don’t know if you heard, but we put lemon in that ricotta and it’s […]

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

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

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 […]
