Contributed by Nicole from Cooking for Keeps  It’s crazy to me now, but as a kid, I didn’t like beef. At all. I was always a foodie, but that was the one thing I wouldn’t touch, in fact you couldn’t pay me to eat it.

Our street growing up was full of children and every Fourth of July, all of us kids would competitively decorate our shiny bikes with red, white and blue streamers, cards and festive ribbons and then parade up and down the street while our parents stood on the sidelines and cheered us on. Of course the night ended with fireworks and sparklers, but … continued…
