I'm a ribeye gal, through and through. When it comes to steak, I go for the fattiest, juiciest cut. Ribeye is supreme. I've been raised on expertly grilled ribeye steaks. My grandpa would cook them for us on special occasions and he used such tender, nurturing care to get them perfectly cooked. Medium rare ribeyes… Continue reading Cajun Steak Tips
I didn't celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Let me rephrase that. I never celebrate St. Patrick's Day. It's a made up holiday that's sole purpose is for you to drink as much as possible. I don't need a holiday for that, one, and I don't usually partake in frivolous holidays. Sure, most years I'll make corned… Continue reading Reuben Slaw
Use frozen meatballs to make this dinner in a breeze. Slowcooked to delicious goodness and topped with Parmesan, this Swedish meatball soup is a good one for cold winter nights.
Chuck roast was made for the slowcooker. It's probably one of the things I make most in my crockpot. I've done it Mississippi-style, regular pot roast-style, and loaded with mushrooms. Chuck roast is my go-to when it comes to pot roast or slow-cooked beef. I wanted to make some barbacoa-style meat for lettuce wraps this… Continue reading Mexican Shredded Beef Wraps
A slow-cooker pot roast that is perfect for the mushroom fans in your family.
The quest for the best chili continues in my household. I've made chili only a handful of times in my life, each time something different. The last time I posted a chili recipe (a few years ago!) I made it with lentils and chicken. A time before, with pumpkin and turkey. I've made regular chilis… Continue reading Brisket Chili
If there's one thing I haven't gotten the knack of in my 5+ years (!!!) of blogging, it's staging food to look as good as it possibly can. Sometimes, I get it right. Like the pictures I took of that steak salad with chimichurri dressing? Gorgeous. Other times, it's seemingly impossible. Do you know how… Continue reading Meatball Parmesan
There was a big Hatch green chile event going on at Crest yesterday. There were at least three huge grills outside and crews were busy roasting the green chiles over an open flame. I got suckered into a big display in the produce section: I got almost two pounds of fresh roasted green chiles for… Continue reading Steak Salad with Green Chile Chimichurri Dressing
My week of "stuffed" meals continues today. I swear, this was completely inadvertent. I didn't intentionally plan to make a week of stuffed foods, it just happened. All the recipes I researched and thought of before I went grocery shopping last week just happened to be a stuffed version of something or other. But hey,… Continue reading Taco & Pepper Jack Stuffed Bell Peppers
Although I typically despise Mondays, today could not come soon enough. I actually had a pretty terrible weekend. It all started off well. I was going to go to the grocery store and decided to stop by my kryptonite (Ulta) beforehand. Did that, spent way too much money, then went across the street to get… Continue reading Garlic Butter Steak Tips with Mushrooms
