Baseball Tailgating Recipes

The great American pastime of baseball excites me for so many reasons. And I’m so glad it’s baseball time!

My two boys are serious about baseball so I spend a lot of time watching the sport. My husband coaches, too. It’s a real family affair. And it’s so fun to see my kids learn life lessons on the field about teamwork and sportsmanship, graceful winning and gracious defeat. But, I really just love springtime and the camaraderie and competition.

Plus, you know, there’s food.

I mean, baseball tailgating is some of the best there is. From major league ballparks on down to youth baseball tournament venues, there’s always tailgating. Always.

And whether you’re grilling out in a parking lot or in your own backyard watching an MLB game, it’s so fun to cook some steaks and just enjoy. It’s all part of the experience. SOME might even say it’s the BEST part of the experience.

If you’re feeding a large group – say an entire youth baseball team, plus parents and siblings in between games – it’s smart to offer different types of steak so that everyone is happy.

Throw on some burgers and hot dogs, too, and you’ve got yourself quite the tailgating experience. Believe me, everyone else will be jealous because they will be able to smell your party. And it will be enticing!

Looking for some steak recipes to try to wow your group? I like this one for Grilled Ribeye Steak. It requires marinating beforehand but it’s oh so worth it!

Or, if you’re in an adults-only setting, try this Jack and Coke marinade. It’s so delicious and, really, it doesn’t taste like whiskey. That’s just a great marinade ingredient.

Now, what you drink WITH your steak is entirely up to you.

Spring Recipes

Holy cow, it’s spring!

Are you as happy as I am that winter is over? I do like the changing seasons, but I wish winter just lasted – say – two weeks or so. That would be perfect.

But, thankfully, the long-awaited spring is here and I can’t wait to cook up some delicious spring recipes.

And you know that “spring recipes” translates to “steak recipes,” right?

I mean, it’s warmer weather so I will be out at my grill as much as possible soaking in the sunshine and filling the air with the aroma of grilling steaks.

That is perfection.

The number one recipe I’m going for this spring is Filet Mignon with Herbed Butter. It’s a light/smaller cut and it’s just right to get our feet wet with for spring. This recipe specifically calls for a Crown Filet Mignon, which is a generously thick cut (like around two inches tall)! Yum!

Spring Recipes Ribeyes

Now, my favorite cut of steak is the almighty ribeye. I love its meaty flavor, marbling and texture. It just speaks to me. So you know I will be springing into spring with some ribeye. Perhaps I’ll try this recipe for “Tangy & Sweet” Ribeyes in a Pomegranate and Wine Marinade. Doesn’t that just SOUND refreshing? Imagine how it tastes! Well, don’t imagine, try it!

Another recipe I’ll test out for spring calls for pan searing some Kansas City Strips and then cooking in the oven for a few minutes and creating a delicious salad with some pretty fierce ingredients like jalapeno peppers and lime juice. Check out this Jalapeno Steak Salad recipe for yourself and see if you’re up for the challenge, too!

What recipes get you excited for spring? Try them out this week and really usher in the season right – I know I will! I’ve been waiting for this for months and months!

Dinner and a Movie Ideas

It’s almost time for the big awards show!

Have you seen all the movies you want to see before the winners are announced? I haven’t quite seen them all and if you’re like me, we’ve gotta get crackin’!

So, let’s make it fun!

I’m really, really behind the times so I plan to fire up the Netflix, cook a romantic dinner for two and make an evening of it!

Come to think of it, I’ll break out some delicious steak recipes, and actually make a weekend out of it! I told you I was really behind.

Dinner and a Movie Ideas

I’m thinking of trying this Japanese Flank Steak with White Soy and Ginger Sauce on one of the nights. I haven’t tried it yet and the ginger, garlic and Dijon mustard in the sauce sounds absolutely divine.

It’ll be fun to mix it up a bit.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. You’re going to have steaks two, maybe three nights in a row?

Yes. Yes, I am.

It’s been done before and I will do it again. I recommend it, actually. And my husband is right there with me. He’s all for it. We’re obsessed together. It’s more fun with a partner in crime.

Not that loving steak is criminal. Oh, no, it is not.

Night two might consist of – of course Netflix – and this recipe for Tuscan Roasted Steak Spiedini. This one calls for steaks certified by the American Heart Association so I feel good about this one, for sure.

Then, for our final evening, I’m thinking this Beef and Vegetable Soup will hit the spot. It’s soup – with STEAK in it! Genius!

Now, if we’re still not caught up, at least we will have a working knowledge of a lot of what’s going on when the awards are announced. It’s much more fun that way.

And we got to eat a lot of steak along the way!
