Steak Marinade

No more relegating steak to special occasion status! Even inexpensive cuts of beef will satisfy when you use my Steak Marinade. Fire up your grill, STAT!  Whenever I experience some life event that calls for an extravagant culinary celebration, maybe a graduation, anniversary, or even a cheat meal after two hours of successful dieting, I usually opt for a big steak dinner.  That’s the time to pull out all the stops with an expensive cut of beef – maybe a prime ribeye, with a little butter melting on top, surrounded by a monster baked potato and some after-thought of...

Now that I have a kitchen of my own, making up holiday cranberry sauce dishes is a great joy. I feel like cranberry sauce is sort of like if “warm and cozy” became a food.

These cranberry meatballs are always a huge hit when I...

Macaroni Salad

Classic Macaroni Salad-Just like Mom used to make! Delicious pasta with all the right goodies tossed in an extra creamy, thick dressing! One of my favorite summer side dishes is macaroni salad. I used to buy mine at the grocery store down the street—always from the deli, never from the shelves. (Shelf-salad is about as bad as it gets.) I found, though, that I was dropping some serious cash to keep up with my macaroni-salad-eating patterns. It’s such a convenient side dish for summer grilling or barbeque that I was serving it all the time! I needed an alternative...
