Chipotle Lime Surf and Turf

I love a good steak dinner, but I’ve only recently begun to branch out from the typical steak and potatoes combo. My recent vacation to Mexico opened my eyes to the numerous different flavor combinations that can be used to enhance a tenderloin though. For example, our first night there we had a tenderloin thatContinue reading “Chipotle Lime Surf and Turf”

Made Rights – Loose Meat Open-Face Sandwiches

This recipe is something that most people probably haven’t heard of, but it’s a dish that my family had ALL the time growing up. Made Rights are a  super fast dinner to whip up, which was quite the necessity in my family when my sister always had band concerts to rush off to, and IContinue reading “Made Rights – Loose Meat Open-Face Sandwiches”

Four Bean Venison Chili

Cole and I both love chili so much, and luckily, there’s so many different ways to make it! I don’t even feel guilty that this is my fifth different version of chili in my recipe box because each version tastes so different. When I first started cooking with venison last year, my good friend DanContinue reading “Four Bean Venison Chili”

Even though people typically envision a grill filled with flames when making burgers, my favorite way to cook them is in a pan on the stovetop. Not only is thisContinue reading “Pan-Fried Butter Burgers”

While it’s great to have amazing food all week long, there’sContinue reading “Sunday Slow Cooker Roast Beef Dinner”

Italian Sausage Pieces

One of the most popular pizzas is a meat pizza with both pepperoni and sausage. While sliced pepperoni is commonly found in groceries stores, the sausage is a little more difficult. However, there is a reason for this – sausage on pizza is best when you are making it fresh. Luckily, this is super easyContinue reading “Italian Sausage Pieces”

Chili Two Ways

It is an age old debate…do noodles truly belong in chili? It’s also a debate that we have in my house every time I pull the chili ingredients out from the pantry. Personally, I love chili just the way it is, but my husband believes chili is only worth eating when it has noodles inContinue reading “Chili Two Ways”
