Kansas City BBQ? Yes, Please!

By

‘Tis the season for barbecue?

Totally!

Listen, with all the merry makers coming in and out of your house this month you’ve got lots of meals to provide.

And turkey and ham for two weeks straight just isn’t going to cut it.

At our house, we usually prepare lots of BBQ favorites to have around for BBQ dinners, BBQ sandwiches, even BBQ breakfast (don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!).

It helps when lots of the heavy lifting has already been done for you like the sweet BBQ flank steak above that’s already been slathered with a yummy citrusy sauce. You just pick your cooking method (grilling, roasting, pan frying, broiling) and serve!

It seriously makes the holidays more enjoyable for me.

Peruse all the great BBQ options and save your sanity this holiday season.

Bon appetit! (Just pretend I said that with a really twangy accent. Yee haw!)

Black Friday Beefathon!

By

Here we are on Black Friday. And you either love it or hate it.

But one way to save big on the beef you want and need for the upcoming holidays doesn’t require you to pitch a tent, stand in line – or even leave your house.

My favorite steaks are on sale and you can see some awesome Black Friday specials here.

Shop for steaks online and give ‘em as gifts this holiday, plus stock up for incredible meals over the holiday season. If you’re going to have houseguests these are always a big hit!

Seriously, it’s one of my top 10 favorite days of the year. A chance to save on my favorite beef without a stranger breathing down my neck in the checkout line.

Happy holidays, indeed!

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!
