Risotto with Tomatoes, Ham and Arugula

Risotto with Tomatoes, Ham and Arugula / Bev Cooks

This gets real. This gets very real. Next time you see thick cubed ham in a vacuum-packed thingy, get it. It’s right next to the Canadian bacon.

Monthly Mixtape: Wispy Winds and Foamy Rims

YES I SAW THE TAYLOR SWIFT TOUR DATES! (sorry to scream) I probably won’t sleep until I’ve successfully secured tickets for me and Nat, but that’s neither hither nor thither. (Also, I know my site looks weird. We had mega technical issues over the weekend but we’re slowly getting back to normal. Maybe.) It’s November! […]

Friday Flotsam

fall trees / bev cooks

Friiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeedeeeeeeeeeeuuuuuuhhhhhhh. (<–just going for high-level annoyance right now) So this is the thing: I had a bunch of little ideas pop into my head this week of things to discuss today, but I wrote none of it down.
