'Finger-lickin' Good' for Father's Day!

Remember the old Kentucky Fried Chicken ad that claimed each piece of The Colonel's Fried Chicken was "finger-lickin' good?"

Well, down here in West Texas, we have our own 'Colonel' by the name of Tom Perini.  The only difference is that his 'chicken' is actually prime rib.  And believe me, this is one steak you will never, ever duplicate!  Known far and wide for his Texas Ranchhouse Ribeye, among other things, Tom cooks like they use to for the cowboys out on the open trail.   

The best way to 'taste' the 'flavor' of Perini's cooking, is to sit down a spell, and savor their cookbook, "Texas Cowboy Cooking."  With a Foreword by actor Robert Duvall, the stories of the old west truly come to life.  Better yet, visit his quaint, off-the-road steakhouse outside of Abilene, near historic Buffalo Gap, (tucked back off the main highway down a two-lane road, you'll be greeted by a giant armadillo!) and see some authentic Texas cooking for yourself.  Tom's recipes will undoubtedly have you asking for more!

Start off with a cold shaker of Texas vodka (Tito's) in a 'Perini Martini' while you enjoy the heat of bacon-wrapped, cheese-stuffed 'Jalapeno Bites'.  After the Ribeye steaks have smoked on the grill to a 'hangover temperature'(don't ask - just read the cookbook!), serve them up with some Perini Ranch Horseradish Sauce.  A Wedge Salad with Ranch dressing, beans or okra and black-eyed peas, potatoes and biscuits, and you have made a meal fit for a king and a cowboy!
I can't think of a better way to celebrate Father's Day, then with some finger-lickin' food from Texas!
Happy Father's Day, y'all!
Cheers~

Camping Cupcakes

What would summer be without camping?
In your own backyard, or high on a mountain-top, camping is the ultimate 'summer-is-officially-here' experience!
Along those lines, if you were camping, you most likely slapped a toasted marshmallow on top of a chocolate bar and covered it with a graham cracker, until the ooey-gooiness of the warm marshmallow oozed over the sides.  Pure summer!

So, it's no surprise that there are S'mores Cupcakes being introduced just in time for summer.  Here is a new one from Family Kitchen via Cupcakes Take the Cake.  Happy camping!




















 Cheers!

A Summer Soiree!

Fun summer colors of orange and PINK are just the way I like to kick off summer, 
so, when I found a cute little summer party over on Pizzazzerie I just had to share!




With your party just dripping in sherbet colors, you are sure to celebrate summer in style!

Cheers!
