I just mixed all the ingredients and poured it over the beef. I let it bake for two hours and it actually came out perfect (well, maybe a little more done than it needed to be, but still tasted good). This was super simple, as long as you have the time to let it bake for a couple hours, you’re golden with this recipe.
It looked and smelled even more delicious after I baked it in the over. For the picnic though, I had to reheat it in a crock pot. Though it still tasted not bad, I’m sure it would have been heavenly right out of the oven. As for the recipe, it wasn’t difficult to make and I love that there were mushrooms. While I was sauteing the mushrooms and onions, it smelled to aromatic. Thank goodness I had already eaten dinner that night.
That’s it! I loved making it for this reason. And when I topped my salad with it, it was amazing. This is probably going to be my favorite recipe out there when it comes to dressings. You all should definitely try this one.
I think I literally whipped the cream for twenty minutes before it started to form peaks. Maybe I have a bad mixer, or perhaps this is just true in nature for meringue. Needless to say, I didn’t have fun making this one. I did however have fun eating it. It tasted so great and I’m just glad that the meringue on top turned out ok and caramelized perfectly in the oven. I don’t think I’ll make this again unless I can find pre-made meringue somewhere.
I'm going to try to go in order from now on, just to make it slightly easier to keep track of. Next up on my list is: Southern Buttermilk Biscuits, Southern BBQ Chicken, Down Home Hush Puppies, Catfish Spread, and Lemonade Icebox Pie. We will see how many I get done, but it's nice to dream right? Stick around!
Whiskey Steak Sirloin
I am not a fan of whiskey, and this steak had such a strong amount of whiskey taste I wasn’t a huge fan. First of all, I would suggest that you bake it for longer than the time said. I pulled it out after the 8 minutes and it was tremendously red in the middle. Had to put it in the microwave for a while to finally get rid of it. The whiskey and soy sauce really took over in the taste department. On one hand, it was easy to make: marinate overnight and then broil for ten-ish minutes. It didn’t taste horrible, I mean it’s steak, but I’d rather have some marinade without whiskey (I had Jack Daniels so you can’t even blame the whiskey). If you are a whiskey drinker, you’d love this, but I’ll say thumbs down just for me.
Shredded Potato Casserole
The infamous potato casserole that is at almost every family function. I’ve never made it before, but have always loved eating it. This time was no exception. One thing I need to teach myself (which I did for the steak and the salad, but not the potatoes) is to read the recipe the night before, in case there is something I need to do that night - ya know like THAW THE POTATOES. Well, thankfully my boyfriend is smart and submerged the bag of frozen potatoes in hot water. If it were just me, I would have put off the recipe until the next day. One thing I would change about this recipe is to add more cornflake/cheese mixture to the top. I didn’t feel like there was enough to sprinkle over the entire thing. Thumbs up, make it!

Green Goddess Salad Dressing
Love this recipe. At first I didn't think that my food processor was going to work because the ingredients list was so long, but I was wrong. This dressing turned out perfectly and tastes amazing.
Since the swordfish picture had pasta as a side, I decided to make my own thing that turned out deliciously and was very simple. Half of a pack of spaghetti pasta, boiled to done. Added a stick of butter and then a lot of shredded parmesean and romano cheeses. You all should definitely try that! I wanted to add some Mizithra cheese, but I couldn't find it at Dierbergs.
Thanks for reading! Until next time...
