2022 in Books / Bev Cooks

YES I’m using the same photo as last year because I still really like it and had zero time to get creative. Ha! Don’t hate it. Booooks! These are some of my favorite posts to write and share and post and publish and share and do and write. You book lovers come out in droves, […]

Monthly Mixtape: Thick Socks and Woolen Blankets

Processed with VSCO with a4 preset

Hey heeeeeeey, new yeaaaar! Happy 2023. We made it. I’m still waiting on my planner and a set of pretty pens to arrive, but I’ll pull through okay. I’m easing back into a work rhythm after a semi-wild winter break. Between non-stop hosting and the snow and Covid (my dad, not me) and 15 thousand […]

gifts / bev cooks

Fra la la la laaa la la la LA. The other day I was wrapping gifts and I needed something to watch while I wrapped. To have on, ya know. And truly, other than Christmas movies this time of year, I barely glance at a TV show. BUT! I’ve been reading and hearing and hearing […]

Creamy Potato, Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Soup / Bev Cooks

It’s slurp time. You knew it was coming. I think actually that this is my last recipe of the year! I think. Maybe? I can’t decide just how active to be on this blog over the next two weeks. It’s giving me so much trouble lately: pages not pulling up, not being able to comment […]

Now, I’m a total believer in skin care. From minimal water splashing and moisturizing to lying on a bed with goggles and laser zapping, […]

You HAD to see this coming. I can’t seem to stop with bread art. I have no intentions of ever stopping with bread art. It find it soothing, therapeutic, relaxing and inspiring. CARB ART. How can anyone be against this? And you don’t have to make a tree. But I made a tree with randoms […]

Potato, Leek and Gruyere Pie

Potato, Leek and Gruyere Pie / Bev Cooks

Savory. Pie. Time. Remember when we polled this? Polled about this? Talked about this? Well here it is! Gruyere cheese. Thinly sliced potatoes (use a mandolin!) Aromatic leeks. Homemade pie crust. I use Alison Roman’s recipe every time and it’s perfect. Her recipe makes two crusts, so either half it or make two. (make two.) […]

tailleur / bev cooks

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFriday! (yes, I actually just typed the word. Don’t get used to it.) One of my favorite things in life is misunderstanding song lyrics. Oh no, not when *I* misread them, but when others do. It’s the very best. For instance, it might come as a surprise to you that we’ve been listening to a […]
