Garlic Butter Steak Bites

Have you ever seen a recipe pop up in an ad or be so random in your social media feed that it catches your eye? That happens to me every time I say I want a steak. I'm not playing. Every. Single. Time.

I've been cutting back on pork and beef, so when I crave it, I tend to go for it. I like to say that my body is trying to tell me I need some nutrient from it, but the truth is I LOVE STEAK. Usually when I crave pork it's bacon that I want.


This recipe for Garlic Steak Bites keeps showing up in my Pinterest feed. Like every time I log in.

Picture from My Incredible Recipes

I decided to make it. I wasn't terribly disappointed.

Mine looks nothing like the picture in the original post. It hardly ever does. You never know what goes on in recipe development and the photography of it. Trickery. Just kidding, I'm sure this author's food is always as amazing as it looks!

There are several reasons for mine not being as picture perfect.
  1. The lighting in my kitchen sucks. 
  2. I substituted several ingredients because I felt like it. 
  3. I used my iPhone XR camera.
With all of that being said, I will definitely make this again with a few modifications. I would marinate the steak instead of seasoning when ready to cook. Instead of using my go to jarred garlic, I would use fresh garlic. I would also use fresh herbs. That part was a mistake. I forgot to grab them at the grocery store. I tend to go light on salt, but this meat needed some salt. Salt also helps to break down the meat, making it more tender. 

Even with all of that, this was still kid approved. So much in fact that she asked for more the next day. Luckily we had leftovers.

I don't have a picture of my plate...I actually started eating them right out of the pan (don't do was hot). I overcooked mine a little and that is also something I will try to avoid in the future. I'll update this post when I make these again! I broke my own rule of following the recipe to the letter the first time you make it. But now I know what flavor profile I want to go for so...

I served this with brown rice, sauteed veggies for me, and broccoli and celery for my daughter. 

What are y'all cooking these days?

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities. If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome. Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you s
