FRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! r! r? POOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLAH! (jumping right in) Okay, I feel like this year especially the Internet is showing us VERA TEW two different camps of people regarding October 31st vs. November 1st. And that is – Christmas People.

You’ve seen this, right? You’ve seen this on TikTok, haven’t you? WELL, I changed it up just a weeeee bit (shocker, I know), but I kept the basic principles the same. And it’s SO.GOOD. Like, really really really good. It has a raw egg and mayo in it. In other words, brace yourselves. Our cast […]

Monthly Mixtape: Amber Rain and Crisp Champagne / Bev Cooks

Happy November! Out of your candy coma just yet? This mixtape, the vibe of it has nothing really to do with the title. And to be fully transparent, I hadn’t planned on even sharing this playlist with you all. I started it sort of recently when I was craving a specific sound. THIS sound. Mostly […]

FRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRalloweeeeeeeen! Let’s start with the obvious. What’s your favorite, F A V O R I T E Halloween candy? Look, this is permission for you to get ultra trashy with it.

Crunchy Buffalo Shrimp Tacos

Crunchy Buffalo Shrimp Tacos / Bev Cooks

Taco Tuesday I DID NOT EVEN PLAN THAT. These are super fun, too. A little crunchy, a little buttermilky, a bit creamy, a little zesty, a lot delicious. You in? Let us peepeth. So it’s fairly simple. There’s nothing too over-the-top laborious, unless you count our flash fry situation in a bit. Thing is, this […]

One skillet! This is how we weeknight. You guys tend to really dig the dump-it-in-and-let-it-simmer meals, and this one is the WOWZA version of that.

Sage and Ricotta Puff Pastries

Sage and Ricotta Puff Pastry / Bev Cooks

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 […]
