BBQ Steak Over Beer Pizza Crust

Grilled steak pizza with a spicy homemade chili garlic bbq sauce!

   Seasoned steak is topped with onion, gouda cheese, and a spicy bbq sauce then placed on a beer-infused pizza crust.  This pizza is grilled for a delicious, smoky flavor! I am not one who ever craves a big, juicy steak.  I guess you could say I just don't appreciate steak.  This lack of appreciation probably has a lot to do with my upbringing.  I don't come from a meat and potatoes kind of family; we were more of a "stew" kind of family where the stew was heavy on the vegetables and low on the meat.   A steak was never, ever, ever in our dinner rotation. I married a man who loves to indulge on a thick, juicy steak from time to time.  I like to be an accommodating wife, so I suck it up and attempt to make a good steak.  I know the man cannot live  quinoa and salmon alone. But, … Continue reading →

The games were pretty standard; there … Continue reading →

These grilled chicken drumsticks are smokey, sweet and delicious to eat!

Chili Garlic BBQ Ribs Recipe

BBQ Ribs-4

Spicy, sticky, sweet and perfect; that's the best way to describe this Chili Garlic BBQ Rib Recipe!

At least three days this week I've stood in the kitchen staring into the fridge hoping for some inspiration. On those … Continue reading →

Cinnamon and apples are the predominant flavors in this tender pull apart bread! The caramel icing makes these loaves extra special! It was just about this time last year when the kids and I went apple picking.  I cannot wait to go again, however, this time I'll do things a little differently.  This time we will carry one bucket per family and NOT one bucket per person!  We came home with over sixty pounds of apples last year.  I do love … Continue reading →
