Honey Mustard and Garlic Beef Roast

I’m a big proponent of cook less and enjoy more when it comes make ahead meals. Making a beef roast that yields enough for more than one meal is ideal. You can enjoy some with your choice of sides or save it for economical weeknight meals.

Ginger Caramel Apple Mule #SundaySupper

Ginger Caramel Apple Mule

Ginger Caramel Apple Mule cocktail satisfies thirsty guests at your next Holiday party. Remember to keep extra ingredients on hand for you too!

This week Sunday Supper shares a drink or two (recipes) with you.

There’s nothing like a good cocktail to welcome your guests to your winter dinner or party. From eggnog to mulled cider, there are so many to choose from. Which winter cocktail recipe will you make?

Ginger Caramel Apple Mule

I’m not a frequent mixed drink drinker. So coming up with a recipe for today’s Sunday Supper was a bit of a challenge.
Winter may be just around the corner, but I’m still hanging on to fall. So a compromise is in order. Ginger, apple and caramel flavors
work as well in winter as fall. Add a bit of orange juice and you have a delicious drink.
I used a caramel apple vodka, ginger beer and fresh orange juice to make this mule.
You can also use apple vodka and caramel simple syrup too.

Add chopped turkey, sauteed celery and onion to the patties. Dredge in flour, egg and seasoned breadcrumbs and fry to brown. Finish in the oven and serve with country gravy. Awesome!
Confession time. I make this with fresh ingredients too. It’s that good.

Beef Pistachio Pesto Crostini

Time to enjoy another recipe round up from The Recipe ReDux Group.

November 2017 – Challenge

Naturally Colored Holiday Treats and Trimmings

Holiday feast season is upon us. But there’s lots of room on the table for brightly-colored, nutritious foods. Show us your sweet or savory, naturally-colored/naturally-dyed holiday fare. Theme via idea from Casey the College Celiac.

The holidays will soon be here.
That means I need some stress free recipes that look like I fussed all day! I’m kidding of course, but easy appetizers my guests will love will always top the list.

Color is an important component to any dish. As winter drabs set in, we need all the color we can get!
Steak Pistachio Pesto Crostini fits the bill! Green pesto, red tomatoes, yellow cheese and brown bread.

Pretty yes, but there’s more here than meets the eye!

A 3 ounce serving of lean beef (150 calories and less than 4.5 grams saturated fat on average) helps power your day with Iron, Choline, Protein,  Selenium, Vitamins B6 and B12. Also Zinc, Phosphorus helps, Niacin and Riboflavin.

Healthy Pistachios add a lively green to the basil based pesto. Pistachios are an excellent source of copper and manganese, and a good source of thiamin and phosphorus. They’re also an excellent source of fiber, vitamin B6, offering 20% of the Daily Value per serving.


It makes a great small plates addition to and party or family meal.
I pan fry the steak. Grilled is delicious too!
I used Certified Angus Beef ® brand strip steak for this recipe. I find it cooks up tender every time!
