Meal Plan Day 4: Mini BBQ Meatloaf

Meal Plan Day 4: Mini BBQ Meatloaf

This is one of those recipes that I pinned once on Pinterest and then totally forgot about. I was initially drawn to it because I liked how baking the meatloaf in a muffin tin creates inherent portion control, but I was skeptical because I had never tried meatloaf before and wasn’t sure if I would like it. … Continue reading

How To: Prep Ahead Freezer Ideas

How To: Prep Ahead Freezer Ideas

We are big on bulk in our house. Buying our meat in bulk that is. I’ve written about shopping at Costco before, and obviously everything that you buy at a warehouse store like Costco or Sam’s Club is sold in bulk. We also like to buy a lot of our meat from Saleem’s Market in the Strip … Continue reading

Balsamic Flank Steak– South Beach Phase 1 Dinner

Balsamic Flank Steak– South Beach Phase 1 Dinner

I have to be honest. There has been some weekend diet-cheating taking place in our house. It’s hard to resist though, when you have sleepover parties with your cousins, bridal showers, and Sunday dinners with your Italian family (read: carbohydrate monsters) . On weeknights, it’s easy because everybody preparing the food is dieting, but when you … Continue reading

Not wanting to eat beef stew for three weeks, I googled “what can I make with stewing beef that isn’t beef stew?” And … Continue reading

Yuseff pointed out to me last night that I haven’t updated my blog in over a week. But it wasn’t so much of a hey-I-really-miss-reading-your-delightful-posts so much as it was a I’m-really-hungry-I-wish-you-would-cook-something. Here’s a secret. Sometimes, I really, really, really,hate cooking. Like– despise it with every fiber of my being. Usually, this happens when I’m … Continue reading

Crock Pot Beef Bourguignon

Crock Pot Beef Bourguignon

My decision to start this blog came with a tiny nod to Julie and Julia– an okay movie with some pretty awesome performances that totally succeeded in making me super hungry. I don’t remember much about it other than Meryl Streep being freakishly tall (and talking really weird) and Amy Adams having some kind of … Continue reading

Barbeque Beef Sandwiches

Black Friday is hands-down my favorite day of the year. My cousin Amanda and I love to wake up super early and hit up Target, Kohl’s, and of course, the Mall. We aren’t out there to get a great deal on a humongous TV or be the first to own the latest gadget– we just … Continue reading
