twins and pops / bev cooks

FRRRRReedeerdeedooo. Before I even begin this post, I’d love to share a couple of thoughts. You’re like, “wait I’m nervous.” I’ll be completely honest – I’ve really struggled with how to navigate this week. Is reposting videos and graphics in Stories a total cop-out? Should I say more? Should I shut up? Do I just […]

Broccoli Cheese Soup / Bev Cooks

But like, with gruyere. Would you believe I’ve never made broccoli cheese soup before? Let me rephrase that. I made it once before this post which led to remaking it for this post but before this post I’d never made broccoli cheese soup before. (!) I know, I can’t believe it either. And you’ll never […]

And this just may alter the course of our relationship. I need you to go easy on me when I admit what I’m about to admit. Don’t damage me, guys. I’m […]

Breakfast Pizza Quiche

Breakfast Pizza Quiche / Bev Cooks

We’re looking at summer brunch for the rest of time, we are. I have a thing for tomatoes and cheese in and on a PIE. Matter of fact, I have versions of this very thing on the blog over and over. I keep coming back to it. Tweaking it this way and that. But this […]

BLT Shrimp Hoagies

BLT Shrimp Hoagies / Bev Cooks

Because BLT + SHRIMP + SUB SANDWICHES = yuuuz. It’s like, the most perfect summer food. You know better than to argue this. BLTs are an absolute staple for us during the warmer months. Honestly though, I crave tomatoes all year round. I even BUY tomatoes year round (yeah I felt that collective gasp), even […]
