Bacon-y Thanksgiving

By

Is this a work of art or what? It gives new meaning to “turkey bacon.”

How have I never thought of this before? I put bacon on top of my meatloaf, why not my Thanksgiving turkey?

What beautiful smells and flavors this will give forth!!!!

I hope you’re having a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with good food and good cheer. There is much to be thankful for!

And bacon is one of them.

It’s National Cheeseburger Day!

By

Being lovers of everything beef, I knew you’d appreciate that today is National Cheeseburger Day!

If ever there was something to celebrate – this is it!

Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri got into the festive spirit on her show and busted out with some KILLER cheeseburger interpretations.

Check out how perfectly rounded those patties on the right are. Wow.

These here are my all-time favorite burgers. And, for me, nothing except American cheese will do. I know, it’s not very refined but that’s just how it is.

So get out there and pay homage to a royale with cheese on this very special day!

Mother’s Day Steak Menu

By

In case your mom hasn’t reminded you yet, Mother’s Day is this Sunday.

Yikes!

So why not spend a little time cooking her a meal you know she’ll love?

Bonus:  YOU will love it, too. But, seriously, that’s just a bonus. This is for her.

Try a little something different with this Steak with Mixed Fruit Salsa recipe, plus a full dinner menu from bread to sides to dessert.

This steak recipe combines a fruity salsa (very imaginative) with a hot, juicy steak. It’s really something to get the senses going – and so fresh, too!

I Heart Steak

By

There are so many forms of love, so it’s only fitting on this Valentine’s Day to express our love for steak – or anything else for that matter.

Someone beat us to it with this wall mural professing sweet, sweet love to all things steak.

I can think of no greater art form than this.

I know, I know – Michelangelo and everything. But this is STEAK we’re talking about!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I hope you have steak in your life today.

Groundhog Meatloaf

By

It’s Groundhog’s Day!

And Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, signaling 6 more weeks of winter.

If you believe in that sort of stuff.

Either way, it’s fun to get into the spirit of a seemingly meaningless holiday, so why not make a Groundhog Meatloaf in the shape of our favorite rodent?

See, if you didn’t like his prediction your mind can go all sorts of places while you’re eating this meal. And if you did like it; well, it’s a cute way to honor the little guy who brought you some hope and enlightenment.

Click to see this groundhog ground beef recipe here. And get creative! This winter’s going to be long, people, we’ve gotta do something to spice it up!
