Spicy Stuffed Pepper Soup

I’m drowning in ground beef.  That sounds really disgusting and terrible, sorry for the unappealing visual image.  But we have A LOT of ground beef in our freezer, like I’m talking 30-ish pounds.  We went halvsies on a half of a cow with our friends, and man, that’s a lot of meat. I’m trying to […]

Garlic-Rosemary Beef Loin Roast

As far as roasting beef goes, the top loin is probably the best in terms to flavor and cooking ease.  Top loins lie between the rib and sirloin sections, and the best cut is from the rib end as opposed to the sirloin end.  A seven-pound cut of top loin will held one to two […]

Bodacious Chili

In my opinion, chili can be tricky.  There are just so many ways to make it’s such subjective decision: ground meat vs. chunks, spicy vs. mild, loaded with veggies vs. not, keep it simple vs. adding unexpected ingredients…You get where I’m going with this, so let’s move on.

Ina’s Meatloaf

Meatloaf is total comfort food.  Perfect for a chilly night.  And it’s easy to make, which is a total bonus.  While we love fancy stuffed meatloaf in this house, the traditional, slathered-in-ketchup kind has it’s place.  Ina’s is my fave. You will need: 1 tablespoon good olive oil 3 cups chopped yellow onions (3 onions) […]

You will need: 1 […]

Flank Steak with Bloody Mary Tomato Salad

Grilled flank steak is such an easy and delicious dinner option.  It’s great if you are entertaining a moderately sized group of people, or for lots of left overs to make steak fajitas a few days after.  Though Bloody Mary’s are not an adult beverage that I prefer to drink, the fixings make for a […]
