Chocolate Oats Pudding with Peanut Butter / Bev Cooks

Dessert alert! Dessert alert! This is your official warning! I can chill. Okay, you guys. It’s like, a pudding thing. A granola, chocolate-y, peanut butter pudding thing. I have no idea. It was one night earlier this summer when I was craving something sweet but not obnoxious. Something with texture but not stupid. Something that […]

Ricotta Dip with Honey, Lemon and Chives

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. Also, don’t tell anyone but it’s a copy cat of my beloved French Market’s famous ricotta dip. Only theirs is fresh ricotta (which you can totally do!), and hand dipped, […]

Sour Cream and Roasted Onion Dip

Sour Cream and Roasted Onion Dip / Bev Cooks

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 […]
