Greek Chicken Tacos / Bev Cooks

It’s like a taco/shawarma hybrid baby love child! These tacos are my new life. My boyfriend. My everything. I mean we’ve all had troughs of chicken tacos in our lifetime. But not like this. Not like this. It’s three things that come together for the mega mama wowza factor: marinated chicken, (tenders this time! but […]

Skillet Chicken with Rice, Zucchini and Corn

Skillet Chicken with Rice, Zucchini and Corn / Bev Cooks

Another summer recipe! Because . . . well, July. It’s a two parter (you know how I like a good two parter), but still has that lazy, thrown-together feel of summer. Because a) we’ll marinate chicken thighs (thighs are life and this is part one), and then b) we’ll sear it in a skillet with […]

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 . […]
