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!

Memorial Day Recipes

Memorial Day Recipes

Sunny barbecues in the backyard – my happy place! And Memorial Day is the quintessential “barbecue in the backyard” day.

It’s almost upon us, so let’s get our ducks in a row and plan some amazing meals out on the patio with these delicious Memorial Day recipes!

Steaks are first up on my list. But the long, leisurely weekend gives us a bit more time to explore something new so why not go for this Memorial Day recipe for Grilled Kansas City Strip Steak and Blue Cheese Mashers? While you’re grilling steak, get your helpers to dive into making the mashers. Everybody wins!

For us, burgers are ALWAYS on the sunny holiday menu. This time, we’re going to mix it up a bit with this Tropical Burger recipe. Pineapple and mango chutney will make you feel like you’re in the tropics!

It’s a long weekend, right?

Serve it with this Fresh Cilantro Picnic Salad – perfect for a group of hungry holidaymakers!

Enjoy good food and relaxation this Memorial Day weekend – I know I will!

Steak Fry Toppings


Maybe you weren’t aware (as I wasn’t not too long ago), but steak fries can be the building block of a great meal.

Don’t believe me? It’s time to try Carne Asada Fries!

Diced carne asada, pico de gallo, guacamole and sour cream all on top of delicious, crispy fries. Oh, the flavors!!!

Or maybe Cheeseburger Steak Fries are more your speed?

Ground beef, cheese sauce, ketchup, mustard and all your cheeseburger topping favorites.

I mean, you were gonna eat fries with your cheeseburger anyway, right? Why not all at once?

And for the cheesesteak lover in us all, try Cheesesteak Fries.

Melted provolone over thinly sliced top sirloin, peppers, onions and fries? Where do I sign up?

Get creative with your own steak fry toppings and create a meal or an appetizer you never thought was possible!
