Stop What You're Doing...

... and go make this yummy Ginger Steak Salad by Pioneer Woman.

Please, please, please??? I'll be your "bess fwien."

And then after you taste it = you'll be mine.

It really puzzles me. Did you know that I ABSOLUTELY ADORE cooking?

Yeah, I didn't think you did. Because I never share recipes and food stories!

It is because... I am one of "those."  A "recipes-are-just-guidelines" one of "those."

Which makes sharing my 'non-existant' recipes VERY difficult.

This is unfortunate, because I am a fabulous cook. Or so my husband tells me. Well, he doesn't really 'tell' me. He just proposes all over again at each meal, right before falling into a food coma. That counts right?!?

SO I am excited to share a recipe for Ginger Steak Salad ( < click, click, click! ) that I followed!!! Yes!!! I can faintly hear my mother-in-law Susan's excited applause ;) 

Cooks Notes:

Well, ok, the steak we used we had grilled the night before (because how BEAUTIFUL has it been outside lately???) using a homemade Mango Teriyaki Marinade and not the marinade in the above recipe.

Also - I doubled the dressing so I could have some more on hand :) For the dressing, I had no limes so I squeezed a fresh blood orange and did half sugar/half splenda. And DONT SKIP the fresh minced ginger!

Mmmmm... Blood Oranges.
We have quite the long-standing love affair.

I also topped mine with: caramalized onions, toasted sesame seeds, fresh cilantro, and crumbled goat cheese.

And right about now Susan's excited applause has probably burst into laughter, because I suddenly realize I didn't quite follow the recipe EXACTLY like I thought I had.

But it's all for the better, right??? MmMmMmMm :D

As my darling Paula Deen would say:

"Love and Best Dishes, from My Kitchen to Yours."

Blessings - Katie :D
