Sirloin Steak Gourmet Sandwich

Yum
Steak Sandwiches

I love a good sirloin sandwich, they are very quick and easy to make but that doesn't mean you can't dress up your sandwich if you have the time to do. I don't always have the time to make what amounts to a more gourmet style steak sandwich but when I do it adds that much more to the taste and quality of what your eating and your taste buds will thank you for it. You have to start off with the proper bun, my first choice is a good whole wheat kaiser bun but a ciabatta bun would work well also. Then add your favourite slice of cheese, stay away from single slices, remember we are going gourmet style. A cut of top sirloin that you can cook on the grill or grill pan and if you have a food processor this will make the BBQ jalapeno sauce simpler. I also like to make a marinade for the sirloin and a separate bowl will be needed for this.
A best practice to remember is that the beef should be cooked to a medium doneness so that it breaks easily as you bite into the sandwich and cut the meat, well done meat just does not cut it, we are making a gourmet style sandwich not a rubber meat bun.

Maple Raisin Tart

Tart Recipes






















 I decided that with Mother's Day on the horizon I would surprise my mother with a treat, so I decided to try something that my mom would enjoy and that's something sweet. I personally am not much of a sweet/dessert eater but I know many out there can be and in moderation I guess it can be okay. I have not made many desserts in the past and can say that the first time I tried this I learned that you should keep the pie shell in the foil while it cooks. The second time though was a charm and I even enjoyed a piece myself with the family who gave me rave reviews. I made sure to search all over the net trying to find something that my mom would enjoy and I substituted some of the ingredients for healthier choices like raisins. The pie shell that I chose was flaky as I feel a pie should be, the messier the better and to top it off once your ready to serve, add a scoop of your favourite ice cream or whip cream. I think all the mothers out there would appreciate an effort from their kids and hope all you moms enjoyed your special day.
