Sweet & Spicy Asian Marinated Steak with Herb Butter

When it comes to romance, I am not the best at expressing myself with words. But put me in the kitchen and I’ll show you how I really feel. I’ll slave over something all day if I think it’ll win over your heart but at the same time, I have a few tricks up my sleeve that don’t keep me chained to the oven yet will still produce the same result. Take this steak for example, the night before you whip up the herb butter and throw the steaks in the marinade. The next day all you gotta do is cook the steaks for 4 minutes total (or more if you prefer no-pink), top it with the herb butter and watch it melt. You will instantly win the hearts of every single taste bud and you didn’t have to sacrifice quality time by being in the kitchen. (Served with Voodoo Chef RED rub roasted green beans)

Grandma’s Meatballs & Pasta Sauce

Homemade pasta sauce may take a bit of time, but besides time it’s incredibly easy to make! Stir it up, add some meatballs and let it simmer.

Grandma Snow's Meatballs & Pasta Sauce 1

Got plans this weekend? You do now! Time to make some homemade pasta sauce compliments of Bob’s Italian grandmother. For dinner one day, he pulled out his trusty family recipe-binder and whipped up a batch of his grandmother’s pasta sauce complete with some huge meatballs. The meatballs were cooked in the sauce which helps marry the flavors of the two together. Most of the sauce was then canned but some of it was served over spaghetti with the meatballs on top. The meatballs were even stuffed with gouda because, well, why the heck not?

Cheetos Cheeseburgers

Cheese up your traditional cheeseburger with smashed Cheetos mixed into the burger meat. With a slice of cheddar on top it’s a double cheeseburger!

Cheetos Cheeseburgers 1

National Cheeseburger Day is a food holiday that should not go unnoticed. In an effort to get your attention I decided to incorporate some extra cheesy-ness in the form of Cheetos. After posting recipes for Cheetos crispie treats and caramelized Cheetos it seems like you cannot get enough of the “dangerously cheesy” stuff and I’m starting to wonder what isn’t good with Cheetos? I actually posted a recipe for Cheetos crusted chicken a long time ago, back in the early days of this blog. You should check it out ;-).

I thought up this cheeseburger back when I made the World Peas burgers. The idea of crunching up something delicious and mixing it into burgers opened up a world of possibilities and I took the obvious next step towards my favorite guilty snack – Cheetos. While the Cheetos flavor in the burgers is subtle, it definitely adds to the air of cheesy-ness combined with a good slice of sharp cheddar on top.

Grilled Plenta with Spicy Steak

Don’t close down your grill yet! Just because summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean that grill season is as well. In fact for many people fall is the prime time to grill because it’s football season. Grilling in the fall makes more sense anyway because who wants to stand over a hot grill when it’s 90 degrees outside? Good thing grilling doesn’t usually take very long. This recipe is a quick griller and even though it may not look like a lot on your plate it is surprisingly filling. The grilled polenta disks do the trick.

Then after you’ve satisfied your food cravings, check out some brain food. In case you haven’t been stalking PubMed like I have, my second paper hit the interwebs! Hopefully it’ll advance into print quicker than my first paper but the important thing is that I can change the status of that paper on my resume, at last! Having things published makes me feel like a smarty pants.
