Sweet & Spicy Asian Marinated Steak with Herb Butter

After soaking in a sweet and spicy Asian inspired marinade, prepare yourself for one of the best steaks ever. Served with a dollop of herb butter that melts to perfection on top.

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)

Cone Head Cupcakes with Ice Cream Frosting 1

National Cupcake Day is exactly one week from today! In an effort to prepare you, 26 food bloggers including myself have banded together to share cupcake recipes today. I took the opportunity to whip up a cupcake creation that I have been meaning to make ever since I thought of it.

You know the adorable cone head ice cream sundae at Friendly’s? Well I recreated it in cupcake form! A vanilla cupcake is topped with a literal scoop if buttercream frosting made with ice cream and decorated with a chocolate dipped waffle cone, miniature Reese’s pieces, and whipped cream. Even if you’ve never heard of or had a cone head ice cream sundae, you won’t be able to resist these little guys.

Potica Nut Roll Revisit

Whether you spell it potica or povitica (or call it something completely different), this Slovenian sweet nut roll bread is better than cinnamon swirl bread, in my biased opinion.

Potica Nut Roll 1

When Christmas rolls around, fruit cakes start appearing along with many other traditional Christmas recipes. While my dad does make a killer fruit cake, the pastry I most look forward to is Potica. Potica looks like cinnamon swirl bread but it’s got a little extra that make it that much better. It comes in many different shapes and sizes but for my family’s recipe the sweet, yeast pastry dough is rolled out really thin and then spread with a coating of ground up nuts and sugar before being rolled up and baked (we use a clean sheet of floured fabric to make rolling easier). Sometimes it’s a straight log, sometimes it gets bent it into a horse shoe shape, and other times it gets baked in a bundt cake pan. Whatever shape you prefer it’ll come up just right. What’s important to me is toasting a slice and then spreading butter on it. Holy yum.

Strawberry Shortcake Cobbler

Use your cast-iron skillet for dessert with this strawberry shortcake cobbler. Easy to throw together and a fun presentation.

Strawberry Shortcake Cobbler

In case you were unaware, cast-iron skillets are not just for entrees but desserts as well. Throw in some strawberries topped with shortcake biscuit batter and you will soon discover the validity of that statement. The strawberries become juicy and gooey which perfectly contrasts the crumbly, buttery biscuit topping. Don’t forget the fresh whipped cream!

Shortbread Cookies

Shortbread is not something I make with any sort of regularity. Nor can I recall my last craving for it outside of the short period of time that trefoils are sold by Girl Scouts. Seriously, that might be the only time of the year I eat shortbread unless it’s in the form of a crust for a bigger dessert. But one day I finally formed a spontaneous craving.

Do you ever crave melt-in-your-mouth shortbread? Because these quite literally do melt in your mouth. You can thank the cornstarch and powdered sugar for that. I even added some festive sprinkles to keep you in the spirit for tomorrow, July 4th – Independence Day!

It was tempting to make shortbread truffles out of the raw dough since it lacks eggs. Next time…

I know you are probably wondering what that delicious red dip is pictured with these cookies. Rest assured it will be shared in a guest post on Peanut Butter and Peppers, July 11th.
