Are you familiar with Pinterest? As per the site’s own description, it is a photo-sharing website that lets its users “organize and share all the beautiful things they find on the web”. If you need ideas and inspirations for hobbies, weddings, fashion, food and even tattoos, this is the place to go. Seriously addicting, I find myself pinned hours on end everyday. Just check out one of my boards, Amazing Cakes, and you will understand my fascination. Just mind-blowing creativity! While there, will you please follow me? I’ll be grateful forever.
Anyway, the reason I am mentioning Pinterest is because I’ve been tracking pins from Onion Rings and Things as a way to gauge which of my recipes are hitting the spot. Much to G’s pride and delight, it is the Bacon-wrapped Cream-cheese stuffed Anaheim Chili Peppers recipe that is getting pinned and repinned the most! Ha! This afternoon, as I am still regaining my bearings from a bout of flu, the grill master took over the kitchen reins and showed me once again who the better cook is with this New York Steak with red wine mushrooms. It was done just the way I like it~plump, juicy and medium rare. Yum!
- 4 (10 to 12 ounces each) New York Steaks
