We are holding onto every last bit of Summer that we can and trying to squeeze in a few day trips before school starts. One of our favorite ice cream shops is Cold Stone Creamery, except the closest one is about 45 minutes away. So to get our Cold Stone Creamery fix, we just grab […]

Mexican Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette

Living in the midwest, there are often times misconceptions. Like – we only eat steak and potatoes, we have no idea what gourmet cooking is and the only cooking oil we ever use is vegetable oil. I’ll have to admit that until a few years ago one of those statements was all too true. I […]

Choice Steaks; The Bold and the Beautiful

Grilling season is upon us north of the Mason-Dixon line, even though you wouldn’t be able to tell it by the weather. One of the joys of grilling is that it gives me a reason to splurge and serve my family one of my favorite cuts of beef, the Ribeye Steak. Like every family we […]
