I’ve never been a great beef pot roast maker. It’s true. My pot roast usually comes out kind of tough and not very flavorful. I’ve researched the best methods for cooking the blessed meat and tried countless recipes. Goodness knows I have even left
Beef Stew just might be the perfect winter food, wouldn’t you say? Loaded with hearty vegetables and tender chunks of beef, it’s both comforting and fabulous on a cold stormy day.

Love me a good Beef Stroganoff.
Love the smell (and sound) of meat sizzling away in a hot pan. Combine that wonderful flavor with a thick and creamy mushroom sauce, pour it over the top of hot egg noodles…and you’ve got me.
Hook line and sinker.
Love it, love it.
Well, I sure hope you are in the mood for easy.
Easy and yummy.
Hearty and satisfying.

Several weeks ago I noticed a recipe my friend Tina (from Mommys Kitchen) posted some time ago on her blog. She called the recipe “No Peek Beef Tips” and said the beef was cooked for three hours in the oven in a simple, savory sauce. I thought that sounded fabulous, and so I gave her recipe a go
If there is one section of my recipe file that is lacking just a bit, it would most definitely be the Beef section. MyHandsomeHusband isn’t a fan of red meat (hates it, in fact!) and so we don’t eat it very often. I aim to please, after all. However, I’ve been on the lookout as of late for a handful

A quest to make a fantastic, juicy, flavorful grilled burger. Nothing fancy or gourmet…just a great tasting classic burger. So, I set myself to work…looking up information online, checking out books in the library, asking around. I even found myself reading a bo

Several months ago, my dear friend Heather called me on the phone. She informed my that while on vacation she’d visited a cute little shop that served the most amazing soup. It was Italian in flavor, hearty in texture, and had big fat Lasagna noodles in it. She loved it, knew I would love it, and t
Last week I had the opportunity to view a webinar video presentation from the nice people at Beef. It’s Whats for Dinner. The video was chuck full of information about beef, what kind of cuts are most popular, what to look for when choosing meat at the grocery store and some simple techniques for cu
Boy, do I have a killer fabulous sandwich for you all today. These Loaded BBQ Beef Sandwiches have multiple layers of magnificent flavor and that is no lie, my friends. I opted to use the Homemade Sandwich Buns I posted monday (recipe HERE) but you can easily use store-bought rolls and they will s

I almost decided not to post this recipe. Mostly because some of my pictures turned out weird with the meatballs looking a little bit like dog food (did I just type that!) and because the recipe is so super simple…I wondered if it would be overly obvious and not worth taking time to write about.

This past weekend I was visiting with my sister in law Erin. She knows that MyHandsomeHusband isn’t a real beef lover. (You may have noticed this simple truth due to the high number of chicken recipes I post, with only a few beef recipes thrown in now and then. What can I say…I aim to pl

Sometimes do you feel like just being sloppy?
You know the kind of sloppy I’m talking about.
Leaving your clothes on the floor for a day or two (or ten).
Ignoring the pile of the dishes while you read a book.
Eating a big fat chocolate chip cookie instead of going to the gym.
You feel lik
My sister-in-law Erin mentioned to me the other day that she has been making some fabulous meatballs using our standard family recipe for Meatloaf. (Click here to see that fabulous recipe). She gave me a play by-play of how to make the meatballs happen I gave it a go this week.
Fortunately for me, my family loves a good Taco Salad with a passion equal to my own (excepting two little twin boys who groan a bit when Taco Salad is on the menu, dang em. Hoping their taste buds improve soon.) We end up having Taco Salad quite a lot through the s
Well, well, well. How in the world are you! I hope this fall-ish season is treating you well. I say fall-ish…because the temperature around here seems to be so high still!!! What is going on? Who ordered 90 degree weather the last week of September. Was it you?
Don’t worry now, I won’t turn you
