Guys, you all know I can get a little excited about food, right? Obs, this being a food blog. Sometimes I get really excited because everything in a dish comes together in some great magical alchemy. Spicy Steak Ramen Bowl with Chipotle Yum Yum Sauce is one of those. It’s an insane play of flavors.
If you’ve never had a Chicago Italian Beef Sandwich, you’ve been missing out. Really, Italian Beef Sandwiches are a bucket list recipe; everyone should experience them at least once in their lifetime. Fair warning: once you’ve had Italian Beef Sandwiches, you’ll want them all the time!
In an unexpected twist, I fell in love with the Steak & White Cheddar Panini at Panera Bread. See, I have another “go-to” sandwich but when I was out with a friend, I followed her lead.

If you’re looking for a simple dinner with flavor to die for, this is the one. Mexican Style Pot Roast. Perfect for a family, easy to make and a bounty of succulent, tender meat for dinner (and if there’s any left) some of the best leftovers, ever.
Ok, I love to cook. “Obs” as some of my young friends would say. Or I wouldn’t have a food blog. But sometimes you want something you can toss together with your eyes closed. Something simple and fast and easy – and maybe nostalgic? That’s where this Porcupine Skillet Dinner comes in.
Leftover Steak: Is it a thing? Maybe not often, but if yours is sitting there in the fridge, mocking you, saying “I’ll never be as good as the 1st night,” here are some fun, creative ways to refashion that steak into something marvelous.
Swiss Steak with Mushroom Gravy Instant Pot. So it all started when I asked the folks what they wanted for dinner. That’s like usually like pulling teeth, but there we were in August: temperature 96 degrees. My Dad immediately said “Swiss Steak.”
