Steak & Eggs: Breakfast for Dad

We continue with our “Dude Food” today with Breakfast for Dad…Steak & Eggs. Yesterday we shared a special Steak Dinner, and believe it or not…we actually had a little steak leftover. So we sliced and diced and came up with a delicious breakfast to start Dad’s day off right! Traditionally Steak & Eggs is served […]

Father’s Day Steak Dinner

Do you treat your Dad to a special Father’s Day Dinner? Yes, I agree…Steak Dinner is not your typical pocket friendly meal, but for a special occasion like Father’s Day, I love to treat Doug. Walmart has a new line of Steak, USDA Choice Premium Beef, and Doug has been wanting to try them ever […]

Some have been new creations that I have concocted, some have not made it past the planning phase (Liz needs to reign me in sometimes) and some are new variations on old ideas. These Italian Sliders kinda […]

3 Sausage Chili with Green Chiles

Every now and then Liz will give me full run of the kitchen to come up with a different version of a familiar dish. Which has at times made for some very interesting… shall I say concoctions of the past few months. Some that have been deemed worthy of sharing and some that made it to the […]

Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Making a satisfying meal for a busy family doesn’t need to take the entire evening. I’ve learned over the years that it’s more important to spend what little time we can carve out of our busy schedules with our family. And with Doug still learning the in’s and out’s of cooking (even if he won’t […]
