Valentine’s Day Recipes

Will you be cooking for your sweetie this Valentine’s Day?

You really should. In fact, I must insist you cook for your sweetie. It’s very romantic, and with the right Valentine’s Day recipes you’ll hit a homerun!

Don’t go to a restaurant with long lines and impersonal service, parking issues, and specials that run out before you get there. That’s sad.

No, cook it yourself! You can do this! It’s so thoughtful!

I mean, who could resist a mouth-watering meal that’s prepared especially for them? Now, THAT’S love.

But don’t get stressed out about it. I’m going to help you and you’re going to be just fine.

Okay, we all know the way to MY heart is through steak recipes. So, I’ll be sharing some of those Valentine’s Day recipes with you to get the ball rolling. But just make your Valentine’s Day dinner specific to your love and you’ll be golden!

Valentine's Day Recipes

First, you could whip up a delicious filet mignon with this Filet with Avocado Buerre Blanc recipe. White wine? Yes! Avocado? Yes! It’s even got instructions on how to make those beautiful cross-hatch marks on your filet mignon. Presentation is everything and this one has got it all! With directions, even.

Valentine's Day Ribeye

How about a ribeye to celebrate your love? This “Tangy & Sweet” Ribeyes in a Pomegranate and Wine Marinade recipe is so impressive. Notice the wine again? It is Valentine’s Day, after all!

You’re going to need a side dish or two to go with your lovely steaks. How about Asparagus with Toasted Hazelnuts? It’s elegant and a nice complement to your steaks. Then, prepare this yummy recipe for Cheese Bread and you will really make it a meal. Perfect.

But definitely choose something that your Valentine will eat. There’s nothing worse than watching someone pick uncomfortably at their food. Especially when you lovingly prepared it!

Whatever you cook this Valentine’s Day, make it special. Your sweetie will appreciate your effort!

Recipes for National Soup Month

It’s still January! I hope you have been celebrating National Soup Month all month long.

What? You haven’t? Don’t tell me you forgot! Well, no worries, there’s still time to rejoice in all that soup has to offer.

It won’t mind if you’re late to the party. It’s awesome like that.

Soup Recipes

As you might have guessed, my favorite soups are the ones that incorporate steak. They’re so hearty and they keep me warm and fill me up – especially at this time of year.

Filet mignon and sirloin steak seem to be the popular soup steak cuts. They work really well to flavor soup and become really, really tender while simmering. But, hey, let’s not limit ourselves!

Do you have a favorite soup recipe you like to bring out at this time of year? If not, and you’re looking for some inspiration, here are some delicious soup recipes to try.

You can make your own Beef and Mushroom Soup at home and revel in the tastiness of the beef tenderloin tips and shitake mushrooms.

With minced onion, garlic and sherry for flavor, this soup is a dazzler for wintertime.

Ever tried Hamburger Soup? It’s National Soup Month – so it’s the perfect time! Utilizing classic ground beef, tomatoes, beef bouillon and other terrific flavors, this soup is a tasty alternative to chili. Try it! It just might become a new staple in your house.

Love bacon? How about this recipe for Cream of Celery Soup with Bacon? It’s so creamy and includes hearty potatoes, chicken stock and, of course, bacon!

Anything that includes bacon gets an A+ in my book.

There are so many amazing soups to serve out there. Have fun researching the perfect soup for your hungry brood. This month, let’s give soup its due. It’s absolutely MADE for warming us up in this cold, cold month of January!

National Soup Month

We’ve made it to January! Happy New Year! And now, it’s back to reality after the beauty of the holiday season.

Yes, the holiday festivities are over but Old Man Winter is still around. January is here, my friends, and with it is cold weather and an often sluggish start.

But don’t let that get you down. There’s so much to look forward to in the coming year!

National Soup Month

For instance, also with January comes National Soup Month. Now THAT’S the way to perk up the month! It’s the perfect time of year to tuck into a hearty soup and warm your belly with an incredible meal. January was absolutely made for soup.

So let’s celebrate all things SOUP!

A hearty soup to me means beef. So try a soup this month made with Petite Diced Sirloin – little pieces of heavenly sirloin steak. If you’re looking to warm up your insides on a cold day outside, it’s steak soup all the way.

My kids love sirloin steak and a soup made with it is a great meal to make for the whole family. I love sharing this around the dinner table. It makes winter nights a bit warmer.

This Beef and Mushroom Soup recipe is another tasty way to celebrate National Soup Month. It calls for Beef Tenderloin Tips, which are cut from delicious filet mignon. Outstanding! And with fresh mushrooms, garlic and sherry, it’s a flavor sensation!

THIS particular beef is so, so tender. Great when eating in a soup. I hate using a steak knife while eating soup. It just seems wrong.

Need more soup inspiration? How about a Beef and Vegetable Soup? Delicious. Nutritious. And it’s a whole meal in a bowl. I love that!

So what are YOUR favorite soup recipes? Share them with us and we can all celebrate National Soup Month together!
