Bacon Ambience


I like bacon. Maybe you like bacon.

But do you like bacon enough to want your home to smell like it constantly?

If so, this bacon-scented candle just might be the ticket for you.

Personally, I only like to eat bacon. True, the smell is divine. But I don’t necessarily want it to linger. Forever.

I like bacon on my filet mignon. With my eggs. On a BLT.

But NOT wafting through my living room when guests are over.

What about you? Does the thought of a bacon-scented home make you giddy? No judgment here if it does. I get it. Really.

Steak Humor…Gets Me Every Time


This hilarious play on words is actually the text on a steak-themed T-shirt from snorgtees.com.

It cracks me up. But, then again, I LOVE steak humor. And word play.

And although I don’t usually go around wearing my appetite on my sleeve, I might make an exception in this case.

What do you think? Would you wear this?

Gordon Ramsay’s Steak Opinion


Gordon Ramsay is indeed a well-known and well-respected chef. He has definite opinions — and he makes them known.

You either like that or you don’t.

Here, he makes his opinion about steak known loud and clear. Let there be no question as to what he thinks.

Watch it and tell me what YOU think. Do you feel the same way?

The beautiful thing is, whether you agree or don’t agree you can cook your own darn steak at home any way you want it.

Steak Star Wars Style


For all my Star Wars loving friends out there, you will think this is a riot. All others, you may have to Google it to get to the punch line…or ask your friends who are “one with the Force.”

As for me, I’ll stick with cow, thank you. Although this is getting me hungry for a steak!

Enjoy the day!

Steaky Birthday, Mrs. Obama!


So it seems my theory that it is universal to celebrate all of life’s milestones with steak is once again proven.

This time, by none other than the First Lady herself.

She chose to dine on American Wagyu steak to mark the occasion of her birth. AND, at a place that serves an Obama Burger – an American Kobe burger with bacon, cheese, ketchup and mustard. Yet again, exquisite taste.

Yum, Mrs. Obama. Yum.

See? I’m not the only one who likes to dine on a perfectly grilled steak when there is something to celebrate.

Next time you have something in your life to shout about, you can revel in it over your own American Wagyu steaks or Kobe burgers at home. Just click here and they can be on their way to your door in no time.

Happy birthday, Mrs. Obama. Hope that steak – and your day – was divine!

How Do You Like Your Steak?


This photo chart from the Sheraton Hotel in Akron, Ohio, is a helping hand for guests when deciding how they want their steak cooked.

It also might serve as a subliminal message to, in fact, order a steak. It sure makes ME crave one!

So cool! I’m thinking of framing this and putting it over my mantel. Yum.

I found this online steak guide on Pinterest. I’ve said it before — if you haven’t yet checked that site out . . . DO IT! It’s so entertaining!

Happy cooking, everybody!

Beefy 12 Month Plan


I’m thinking this might be for me. It might take all the guesswork out of meal planning and ensure that I have something tasty on hand at all times.

It’s a 12 Month Plan with pretty awesome choices like Beef Wellington, T-bones, Prime Rib Roast, Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon…

But…I am going to send them to myself. It’s a gift to myself that will keep on giving.

Seems like a smart way to make sure I’m ready to go with some amazing menu items. I’m all about making life easier for myself this year and this seems like a great option.

Pre-planning. What a concept! I wish I had fully embraced it before. I might have saved myself a whole lot of heartache – and scrambling. Check it out here if you want to try it, too.

Here’s to a less-harried 2012!!!

Beef Bucks on “Wheel of Fortune”


I LOVE “Wheel of Fortune” and, well, I LOVE beef.

So imagine my absolute glee that next week on “Wheel of Fortune” one of the gift tags when contestants spin that big wheel will be $1,000 in Beef Bucks!

What are Beef Bucks, you may ask?

They’re checks or VISA gift cards that may be redeemed at lots of great places for purchases of – you guessed it – beef! Beef Bucks is a non-profit organization set up to promote the beef industry. So cool!

You can read more about Beef Bucks here and read about the “Wheel of Fortune” appearance here.

What fun!

I’m all for this Beef Bucks idea. Spread the joy, I say!

So watch “Wheel” next week and cheer for those contestants to win lots of Beef Bucks!
