Springdell Blade Steaks in Creamy Mushroom Sauce

  So for years, my grandmother (AKA Nan) has been trying to talk me into making a variation of this recipe.  I’ve never been much interested because Glen used to despise mushrooms.  Of course, when Glen and I met many years ago, his diet consisted of pretty standard foods- burgers […]


Asian Shaved Steak Sandwiches with Pickled Bok Choy

Honorable Mentions- Winter Share Box #6

The purple cabbage…  Beautiful, right? Toss it with shredded carrots and some home made chunky peanut sauce and you have some delicious slaw!  I find that, like beets, people either love this or hate it.   Or toss with some creamy spicy mayo… Or stick it next to a Springdell Porterhouse […]
