Chocolate, Cheese and Wine – Oh My!

Chocolate, Cheese and Wine - Oh My! / Bev Cooks

You had to see it coming. I don’t think there’s anything greater in this life than a) those three words back to back, and b) eating those three words side by side. And let me just say, I’m no cheeseboard pro! Because I feel like it’s all in the mix and match, try this and […]

Steak With Pesto Gnocchi


So, as bistro week continues (the only real thing I learned about the meaning of “bistro” is that I need to grow a mustache for true authenticity. DONE. And gross.) we’re having steak and potatoes! By the way, bistro week did in fact start on Monday with Aaron’s pasta, and then on Tuesday with soup, […]
