I love creating homemade gift mixes for the holidays.  They are such a fun and inexpensive way to show someone you care!  One of my favorites is this Homemade Cinnamon Hot Chocolate Mix.  Throughout the year, I look for mason jars in thrift stores, or I save my glass peanut butter jars.  Then I wash them out and use them

Growing up, we rarely used jarred tomato sauce because we always made our own homemade spaghetti sauce. Because I was young, I never thought anything of it. But when I had pasta at a friend’s house and they used jarred sauce, I never liked it much. My dad was generally the one who always made our sauce; it was one of his

It’s more than halfway through summer, so I’m not quite as enthusiastic about grilling every meal like I was in June. So I usually use the grill for those REALLY special grilled meals. And tonight, it’s a thickly sliced Angus Ribeye Steak.

My local Price Chopper has an awesome selection of Angus beef. If you don’t see what you like in the aisle, you can always go over to the butcher’s counter and select a more custom cut of meat there. Better yet, tell them exactly what you want, and they will cut one for you to your liking. That’s what I did when I picked out this beautifully marbled steak. I like mine with a large rib-eye cap – or technically named the spinalis dorsi (it’s left side of the steak below). Quite simply, it is the most succulent piece of meat on the cow.

I’m all about cheap cuts of beef, and this marinated London Broil is as cheap as beef gets – especially when it’s on sale. London Broil is funny though… traditionally, it was another name for the flank steak.
