Skillet Shellbows with Shallots, Peas and Tomatoes

Skillet Shellbows with Shallots, Tomatoes and Peas / Bev Cooks

A deliciously simple skillet supper that bridges the gap between light and bright, and the ultimate in comfort. Plus would you just look at those adorable shellbows right now? I love this recipe for one main reason. Two reasons. A few reasons. A whole dang slew of reasons. First of all, it’s (mostly) vegetarian! I […]

Salmon, Leek and Potato Chowder

Salmon, Leek and Potato Chowder / Bev Cooks

Okay, head up. Pencil down. Eyes right here. You ready for this? Oh, oh bay-buh. It’s a dreamy, creamy lemony spring soup with flaked salmon, tender red potatoes and sautéed aromatic leeks. Which I feel like is obvious, given that they’re in a soup. But still. You needed the imagery. This is an embarrassing cinch […]

Frappy Fool’s Day! I hate it. Okay, hate is a strong word. Don’t say hate, blah blah blah. But really, as much as I’m into watching prank and joke shows (Candid Camera forever), I can’t handle BEING PRANKED. All caps. I can’t. So far this morning (and these are mild) there was a fake spider […]

Thai Coconut Turkey Noodles

Thai Coconut Turkey Noodles / Bev Cooks

Rich but not a total gut bomb, I’ve got an eaaaaasy Thai dish you can whip up yesterday. It almost doesn’t even look Thai, does it? The whole thing has this “spaghetti and meat sauce” feel but with a twist! Coconut milk. Ground turkey. And a ROASTED red chili paste. Not the regular red curry […]

Gruyere and Sausage Scones / Bev Cooks

More scones! I feel it only appropriate. These rustic beauts have quickly become something about I dream about because you can really do anything with them. Remember my first version with cheddar and dried Italian seasoning? Slayed, yes. Well this one I added some seared breakfast sausage links (solid decision) and some grated GRUYERE (all […]

FRRRRrrrrrrri ha-day-ya. Did you see Arkansas BEAT GONZAGA LAST NIGHT? Did you see that? They beat Gonzaga! FLOORED. It ruined my Final Four but I don’t even care because that’s amazing. Also I’ve been saying it like this the entire time: Gon-zah-ga. Like Julie Andrews I guess. And it’s Gon-ZAG (like zig zag)-ga. How is […]

Chicken and Broccoli Pizzas

Chicken and Broccoli Pizzas / Bev Cooks

Pizza! But it has broccoli on it so it’s 80% salad? These are simple because I’m using premade dough (Trader Joe’s, babe). And it’s also simple because I bought a bag of broccoli florets and took a knife to the larger ones to make them all equalish in size. And it’s also pretty simple because […]
