This has some serious kick. We love spicy food here so this pizza … [Read more...]

Amazing steak sandwich layered with caramelized onions, mozzarella cheese and barbecue sauce.  Just to be clear this is a steak sandwich, it is not a Philly Cheesesteak. I make those too, but the cooking process differs slightly from this one. So just for the record for all you purists, this is in no way a Philly Cheesesteak. It's just as damn good as one though. I think by now you must realize how much I like steak. I'm a beef girl. I was brought up that way. My Dad was a beef guy. I grew … [Read more...]

Which is basically code for "I'm going to spend a week watching everything humanly possible on Netflix while I lounge around in my jammies". While I'm working hard around the house lounging around … [Read more...]
