Busy Bee...

I know, I know it has been a while since I posted and I appologize for that.  I have been working on the new recipes, cooking tips, a second Forkful of Simplicity Cookbook, deciding whetether to self publish or traditional publish, taking pictures... loads and loads of amazing decisions and endless possiblities.  None of these are valid excuses for not posting so lets begin with a new and amazing recipe shall we...

Grilled Skirt Steak with Oven Roasted Broccoli Raab

This recipe is amazing.  It is so simple to prepare, minimal ingredients, and little prep work for a flavor and a taste that cannot be denied as something less than wonderful. The flavor of the meat up against the bitterness and garlic bite of the broccoli raab is fabulous and best of all it is a team effort.  Tony grills the meat and I prepare the broccoli raab all in about 20 minutes.  So grab your spouse, a loved one, a friend, a neighbor - get a bottle of red wine and make this meal...Enjoy!
