Pesto Turkey Meatballs with Pasta in a Creamy Basil Sauce

Pesto Turkey Meatballs with Pasta in a Basil Cream Sauce / Bev Cooks

Do you need me to repeat “creamy basil sauce?” Because I’m more than willing. This is sort of like a “spaghetti and meatballs” sitch but only summerfied and creamland dreamland. Plus we’re putting pesto in the meatballs, so. Things are looking up for you. And your mouths. (wipe that drool, people are looking.) I’ll start […]

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 […]

Or maybe it’s really more a flatbread. Either way, summer carbs! I love these so much I can’t stand them. They are everything you want in food and life and love and beyond. Salty. Crunchy. Cheesy. Tangy. And the flatbreads are great, too! (ba . . . domp?) Let’s look at this ridiculousness. You can […]
