My Best Meatloaf Recipe

It may seem a little strange to post My Best Meatloaf Recipe in August since it usually isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when the temperatures are in the triple digits (in the shade). However, we have this wonderful little farm in East Texas, in a galaxy far far away from the hustle and bustle of the city where we make our escape most weekends. The weather can be quite different…

Dr. Pepper Beef Tostadas

I think just about everyone has tried Dr. Pepper pork shoulder by now and it is one of my favorite recipes – I’ve made it over and over again.

It was a huge deal to host dinner club at your house as it meant pulling out all the stops, blowing the dust of…

Cheese Steak Sandwich

I saw this cheese steak sandwich recipe on the Food Network and it was one of those recipes that immediately caught my eye. I had never tried to make anything like this because, in truth, we simply don’t eat a lot of sandwiches in our house. But this…oh my cheesy goodness!
