Father’s Day Favorites

Father's Day Porterhouse Steak

Thinking about Dad’s big day yet? Father’s Day is right around the corner!

Show him some love the foodie way – with steaks, of course!

The Big Daddy Combo for dear old dad is a no-brainer. It comes with T-bone steak, bacon-wrapped filet mignon and Kansas City strip steak. A nice variety.

But maybe you know Dad needs more than that. Try a 3-, 6- or 12-month gift club. Pick exactly what he likes and either send him a new cut like a Porterhouse steak or even Wagyu beef each time – or send him his favorite every month. You choose!

Not sure if he likes ribeye steak or maybe would like to try something new? A gift card will make his day! Then DAD can choose what he likes and everyone’s happy.

The whole point of Father’s Day is celebrating Dad. So give him something he’ll love and you will have done your job!

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Gift Boxed Filet Mignon

It’s almost time to celebrate Mom!

And how better to honor her than by making her life easier? Feed her!

Hey, she’s fed you for all these years, it’s time to return the favor. And not with just any old meal.

Mom deserves filet mignon.

That’s right.

Present her with steaks that are butter tender. Perhaps beautifully gift boxed.

Then cook them for her.

And clean up.

She won’t know what hit her. And you’ll be in her good graces for months to come.

See, friends, my Mother’s Day Gift Guide consists of one item: steak.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

Gift Boxed Steak Combo

Romantic gifts for men can be tricky.

But the simplest way to come up with a winner is to think, “What does he like?”

Sounds easy enough, right?

My hubby LOVES beef. A steak cooked on our backyard grill is probably the pinnacle for him.

So what are the top steak gifts men like for Valentine’s Day? Here are my suggestions:

  1. T-bone steaks. They’re hearty. And manly. And shaped like a heart!
  2. Porterhouse steaks. These babies are man-sized and so delicious.
  3. Kansas City strip steaks. You can’t go wrong with the meaty flavor of this cut. It’s my husband’s absolute favorite.

Try sending him a beautiful gift-boxed steak set. It’s sure to win his heart this Valentine’s Day.

And, if you’re lucky, he might even share with you!

Recipe for a Happy Life This Holiday Season

By

filet_2013_lrg3

What really makes you happy?

For me, it’s good food, good people and gratefulness.

Here’s my RECIPE for a happy life during the holidays (and all year ‘round):

 

Add equal parts juicy steak and potatoes

Place happy, smiling people around my table

Sprinkle liberally a good dose of humility and thankfulness

 

That’s it.

It’s simple, really.

If we all focus on the truly wonderful things we have in this life, there’s no room for the negative.

I did mention steak, though, too, right? Make sure there’s steak.

Hungry people tend to be grumpy.

The taste of a perfectly grilled steak with its hearty, yet tender, flavor makes everything right in my world. The happiness recipe definitely calls for steak.

Enjoy the holidays with this recipe, friends! And be sure to share it!

Gift Ideas for Hard-to-Buy-For Folks

By

Boxedgiftset_3Fall2014_LRG

We’ve all got ‘em.

Those people on your gift list who either have everything or don’t like anything.

What do you get them at holiday time?

I always go with my gut. Literally. Food is something we ALL enjoy.

Give steaks!

Steak gifts always make a huge impression. And with all the variety of steaks out there – from ribeyes and T-bones, to filet mignon and Kobe beef – you can customize it so that it’s just right.

And if steak gift packages are too tall an order, just give ‘em a gift card and let THEM choose which steaks they like best.

Problem solved. It’ll be a happy holiday for all!

Reward Yourself This Holiday Season

By

gift

You give so much to everyone else, don’t forget to pamper yourself while you have some time off this holiday season.

If you’re like me, a little red wine goes a long way toward smoothing out the kinks of the day. How about a red wine gift set – for you?

And ya gotta eat, right? Steaks are the perfect complement to that smooth red wine. Why not indulge in some American Wagyu Kobe steaks?

They’re a delicacy. Like you.

Or maybe filet mignon is more your style. Try your luck and enter this contest (http://www.andreasworldreviews.com/2014/12/christmas-wishes-kansas-city-steaks.html) and maybe you can even WIN yourself some steaks!

Even better!

This is the time to reflect on a year well lived. To me, red wine and juicy steaks are the perfect way to toast to what you’re thankful for this holiday season.

Me? Well, I’m pretty thankful for steaks and red wine.

Holiday Gift Guide – Gifts for Co-Workers

By

gift

Co-workers are a tricky bunch.

At holiday time, you’ve got to find the right gift that sends just the right message.

In my book, these are always winners:

1. Steak and wine pairings. Classy.

2. Gift-boxed steaks. Delicious! And beautifully packaged!

3. A selection of appetizers – you know, to serve at parties you’ll be invited to.

Gifts of fine foods speak volumes. They’ll appreciate your taste AND the message.

And THAT sets a nice tone for a fabulous 2015 at work!

Holiday Gift Guide – Gifts for Him

By

TBone_2012_lrg

It’s pretty stereotypical that men love steaks.

Why?

Because it’s true!

That’s why a gift of tasty T-bone steaks or Porterhouse steaks say “I love you” like nothing else.

Has he ever tried a bone-in ribeye? Send him some!

This holiday, give him what he craves – steaks he can sink his teeth into.

This is one present he would NEVER return. And if you’re lucky, he might share!

Happy shopping!

Holiday Gift Guide – Gifts for Her

By

rp_TopSirloin-Applebacon_lrg-300x233.jpg

Is it tough to come up with dynamic gifts for the ones you love?

Trying to figure out what to get that special lady this year?

As a female myself I KNOW I would love these:

1. Filet Mignon (with bacon, please)

2. Beef Wellington (I’m in charge of cooking for my family and I can just pop these in the oven and they’re done!)

3. Anything that’s Heat & Serve (ham? yes! sides like twice-baked potatoes? double yes!)

The way to a woman’s heart is definitely through her stomach. And in my case, steaks are a direct route.

Surprise her with something that says “I know you!” this year and she’ll always be grateful.

Here’s An Idea – Give the Gift of Food!

By

Boxes With Bows

If you’re like me, you struggle year after year to land on precisely the right gift for everyone on your list.

It’s pretty difficult.

But one thing I’ve found that EVERYONE appreciates?

Good food!

It’s one of the few things we all have in common. We all have to eat.

And a beautiful meal is so memorable. Isn’t that what we’re looking for at holiday time anyway? Incredible memories?

I’m giving things like gift-boxed steaks and holiday meal combos this year. Can you imagine receiving a prime rib roast and smoked ham from someone? Wouldn’t that make your day, your week, your SEASON?

Plus, it’s a pay-it-forward kind of gift. Your recipient then gets to cook those steak gifts for someone else – and that person will surely thank you, too!

‘Tis the season for eating!

Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Foodie Dads

By

What do you give the man who wants nothing but has a real obsession with great food?

Foodie gifts for Father’s Day!

I’ve come up with some fun/yummy ideas for dear old Dad that will get his taste buds moving! Take your pick and he’s sure to be appreciative!

1. Gift Boxed Steaks. Nothing says love like gorgeous steaks in a beautiful package. Near perfection.

2. The Big Daddy Steak Combo. Encourage Dad to indulge his passion for grilling with a steak combo package of his favorite cuts – and invite you to join in!

3. USDA Prime Beef. Go all out and treat Dad to these very high-quality steaks and beef. Only the top 1-2% of beef can be “Prime.” That should impress Dad.

4. Chef Hat. Dad loves food so he needs to look the part. Make sure he has a fancy chef hat to wear while he’s grilling up something great!

Not sure what to give him? A gift card will do just fine! Let HIM decide what he wants most!

Menu Ideas for Father’s Day

By

Now that we have a checklist for planning a celebration of Dad on Father’s Day, let’s talk MENU!

We’ve got to do it up right for Dad!

APPETIZERS

We’re going to want to whet Dad’s appetite, but not TOO much because there’s lots more to come! Try some Jumbo Shrimp or Basil Pesto Gorgonzola Kisses to get him started.

ENTREE

Now on to the main course! Might I suggest a gorgeous Porterhouse steak for such an occasion? It’s manly, it’s delicious and it’ll let Dad know you’re serious.

SIDE DISHES

This celebration meal calls for Mashed Potatoes with Porcini Mushrooms or decadent Twice Baked Potatoes. Delish!

DESSERT

MY dad is all about the German Chocolate Cake. But maybe yours would love Red Velvet Cake or Vanilla Cheesecake. Pick his favorite!

It’s so much fun to plan a meal for someone you love. Make sure you have all Dad’s faves and it’ll be a hit. Click here for more menu inspiration.

Happy celebrating!
