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. I was pretty gung-ho on my opinion, even though I’m pretty sure it was just the idea of it that turned me off, and not the actual texture and flavor of the meat, plus I … continued…

Contributed by Katie from Katie’s Cucina I’m so excited to share today’s recipe. If you love taco’s and love burgers you will love my recipe for Mexican Burgers! It’s the best of both worlds in the burger form.  I got the idea from a local restaurant we ate at years ago. I had a taco-like burger and loved the idea. So of course, in normal food blogging fashion I went home and re-created the recipe. And I’ve been making it for … continued…

Contributed by Nicole from Cooking for Keeps Since I was a kid, I’ve loved the Fourth of July. 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…

            After the long winter months, it creeped up on us again and it’s here: swimsuit season. Surely there are those that welcome this time of the year with zero hesitation… And then there are the rest of us… flashing back to all those moments we knew better than to choose that jelly filled donut but just couldn’t quite resist… Oh but to have the will power to resist such temptations.

This could not be easier—and the fact that we’ve taken apart the pesto and made those ingredients garnish makes for a pretty dish. Serve this with plenty of fresh tomato salsa/salad, which seems a perfect complement to the flavors of pesto. We use pecans because that is what we happen to have, but walnuts or the more traditional pine nuts would be every bit as delicious.     Sirloin Steak with Deconstructed Pesto Topping Prep Time: 5 Minutes  |  Cook … continued…

There’s something about the combination of mint and bourbon that can only mean a Kentucky Derby tie-in. I love the combination. The mint and bourbon both come through on this one, and the brown sugar and bourbon both help make a nice crust on this grilled flank steak. Of course it doesn’t have to be served just on Derby Day…Mint (grow your own—even I can get mint to grow) is just a nice, surprising addition to a lot of savory … continued…

Jerk seasoning is widely known in Caribbean cooking, and it’s widely known as hot-hot-hot! I made this recipe milder, giving you the option of adding 1 to 2 hot peppers. You can buy plenty of prepared versions, but as with so many things, this is far better when made at home with fresh herbs and spices.   Note: For party appetizers, skewer one or two cubes of marinated beef onto shorter bamboo skewers and pass as small bites. Prep time: … continued…
