Fabulous Steakhouse-style Holiday Get-together
Steakhouses are great (particularly if someone else is paying) because you get to indulge yourself in a borderline dangerous amount of beef in the classiest of surroundings. But that's only part of the story. The unsung heroes that make any steakhouse visit complete are the sides and desserts. So, tonight I've put together a full classic steakhouse menu for you to make at home. It's more intimate and fun to eat with family and friends at home and by staying home you can treat everyone to a great meal without taking a second mortgage! I'll prepare...
Beef Wellington with Madiera Sauce
Hasselback Potatoes with Herbs
Creamed Peas
Flaming Cherries Jubilee with Ice Cream

Peanut Butter Perfection!
The history of peanuts is a journey from South America, the peanut plant probably originated in Peru or Brazil, to Asia and back again to North America where it didn't become a commercial crop until the late 1800's. Peanut butter was first introduced at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904 (invented by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (of cereal fame)) and became a source of delicious protein during the first two world wars. National peanut butter day is January 24th and we're gonna celebrate the 12th most valuable cash crop in the U.S. with recipes for everthing from soup to dessert! You'll sample...
Creamy Pumpkin & Peanut Soup
Thai Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce
Thai Chicken Pizza
Cheesecake Factory-style Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cheesecake

Ramen
Ramen is certainly having a “moment” right now, enjoying a popularity that’s reserved for only the trendiest foods.

Asian Shrimp Noodle Soup
Tom Kha Goong Ramen
Spicy Mushroom Miso
Beef Ramen Noodle Soup with Enoki Mushrooms
