2 *NEW* Recipes

because it's been a long time since I've shared some new things.  First up, is this household's new favorite snack.  Is it healthy and good for me watching what I eat - yeah, probably not.  But I love this none the less: cheerios, marshmallows, and peanut butter oh - my. 

Here's what the recipe calls for:
- 6 cups of cheerios
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup of peanut butter
- whole bag of mini marshmallows

Directions: Heat butter in a pan, add in marshmallows, once all melted add in peanut butter.  As soon as everything is smooth turn off heat and add in cheerios.  Dump into a greased pan, smooth out, let cool - cut and enjoy. 

My variations is a little less cheerios, an extra tbsp of butter and I use 3/4's to 1 cup of peanut butter, because I LOVE peanut butter.  

The finished product - and actually I used a little too much cheerios, normally it's better coverage - still good though! 

The second recipe I want to share is a steak marinade.  I don't know about you - but the Hubs and I love to eat steaks, but it seemed every time we'd grill them we just couldn't get that nice tender/juicy taste out of them.  It was becoming frustrating to say the least.  So one afternoon I decided to check around for some marinade recipes, see what ingredients we are missing.  I came across this recipe over at All Recipes.  We decided to test it out, each time we use this marinade we are amazed at how tender the meat is and what great flavor it has.

After reading through some customer reviews, they suggest definitely getting the red wine vinegar, other vinegars work but most said that they could taste the difference one they used the red wine and it was much better.  After the first time we altered it slightly to our tastes and now we cut back on the vinegar amount (it was too much for us), we don't use the soy sauce as it's not something we regularly use, and also we use onion & garlic powders instead of fresh ingredients, but that's just our personal preference.  It says you can use it on all meats, we've only tried it on steak, but look forward to trying it on a roast.  I highly suggest trying this out next time you are going to be grilling up a meat.

Steaks, right off the grill.
