  1. May 11, 2021CHEF BLOG: Chef Djura's New York Steak with Sauteed Vegetables
    Djura's Social Media Post


    This is the way that I prepare steak for myself and my wife at home. It is not the traditional way of cooking a steak, but the results are great. Any kind of steak can be cooked this way. If you decide to use a larger cut of meat (10 oz or more, or Tomahawk steak) you should consider using an oven in combination with a stove for cooking.

    Denise's Social Media Post


    Growing up one of my favorite cookies was called a haystack, the recipe had lots of butter and sugar.  This new version of an old classic replaces the butter with coconut oil and the sugar with honey. It is a super easy recipe and can be stored in the freezer so when you get that sweet craving you can just grab one to satisfy.

    Nicole's Social Media Post


    While I love to try new things in the kitchen, I have minimal equipment and like to keep things quick. That’s why I love sheet pan meals: they are simple, require minimal effort, and have very little cleanup.
