Steak lo Mein

Since I’ve been helping out the folks, I’ve been “forced” to step up and find creative ways to use up extra steak. This time, it’s Steak Lo Mein and it HAS to be my best “secondary” steak dish, ever. Hands down.

Cinnamon Swirl Ragamuffins

If the name Ragamuffin doesn’t captivate you, the taste will. Ragamuffins are the lazy cook’s (by lazy I mean me, not necessarily you) way to a little Cinnamon Roll flavor without the yeast & the wait that comes with it.

Famous Dave’s Cornbread

If you want an incredible, moist, fluffy cornbread, you’ve got to try Famous Dave Anderson’s recipe. He claims it’s even better than his corn muffins that are served at his Famous Dave’s restaurants. I agree!

Original Cheese Zombie Sandwiches

It might have been the name that drew me in. The Cheese Zombie. It was the wholehearted endorsement of those who had grown up on Cheese Zombies that hooked me. A Cheese Zombie is a sheet tray of home-made bread layered with an oozy, gooey American cheese and Cheese Zombies are sooo much better than they sound.

The last time I made Zombies, I made 1/3 plain cheese, 1/3 with pickled Jalapenos and 1/3 with ham. The possibilities are endless.

Ham & Parmesan Risotto (Instant Pot or Stove Top)

I love me some Risotto – how ’bout you? It amazes me how you can take a simple ingredient like rice, add a glug of wine & a few gratings of cheese (plus a bit of this and that) and turn it into a gourmet meal – no make that a gourmet experience – because you get to drink the rest of the wine! Plus plus!

Not Your Father’s Root Beer & Bourbon Glazed Ham

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned Not Your Father’s Root Beer on my blog before – see my Dad and I are pretty wild about it and split one every now and then. So when Dad said he’d like a ham, I immediately (and selflessly, I might add) sacrificed a bottle. Of his, of course, lol! (Fyi: plain old root beer will work in this recipe, too.)
