OH HI. So this morning I had a major site crash, and it lost my whole post. So – here are three photos, and the recipe. Lawd knows I have no idea what I blabbed about this morning. Something about Emily Gilmore and having a face that looks like a lighthouse? Because I make sense […]

Slow Cooker Roast Beef Melts

Slow Cooker Roast Beef Melts / Bev Cooks

Because melted cheese on shredded beef. The end. (Minus Aaron’s sad, soulless cheese-less versions. We’re learning to forgive him, right? Eh, we’ll try later.)

Movie kiddos

Gremlins making cinnamon ornaments

FRI LA LA LA LAAAA LA LA LA DAY. Do your eyeballs ever wiggle in their sockets? You know like, when you sort of rest your eyes, and they just start boogieing on their own? It’s the weirdest feeling! I can’t decide if I hate it or want to cut a rug with them. It […]
