My favorite food and restaurant articles I came across this week! I've been finding myself drawn to unconventional places to read about food this week, most notably, Outside Magazine.

The Simple Meal That's Powering Team USA  - via Outside Magazine

With the Olympics in full swing, this article stood out and seemed appropriate to include. I don't want to give too much away, but I'll say three words: Oats, eggs, and coffee.

HEB Buys a Delivery Service - via

Food delivery services are in full swing, and for good reason. Why take time to go the store if you don't have too. So much productivity comes out of these services. Texas based HEB has now acquired it's very own on-demand food

Four Go-to Camper Meals - via Outside Magazine

I used to do a lot of camping and backpacking. The challenge was to find good food to make that was edible and nutritious as well as being portable enough to take camping. These four meals will defin…

Chimichurri Steak

I've been thinking about making this one for a while, and finally got around to finding a night to try it out! The chimichurri sauce is full of big flavors that compliment steak perfectly! This chimichurri is based off of Anthony Bourdain's version, with a few modifications.

The Recipe:

1 1/2 Cups Olive Oil1/4 Red Wine Vinegar1 Cup Finely-Chopped Fresh Parsley1 Cup Finely-Chopped Fresh Cilantro1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper1/2 Teaspoon Paprika1/2 Teaspoon Oregano1/4 Teaspoon Pepper4 Cloves Garlic, MincedJuice of Half a LimeJuice of Half a LemonSalt to taste1 Top Sirloin, About 2 Pounds
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until combined. Marinate the top sirloin in a plastic storage bag for at least 1 hour. Then, it's time for the grill. I grilled this top sirloin using the reverse sear method.

While the top sirloin was on the grill, I put the remaining marinade on the stove. Once it came to a simmer, I turned down the heat. Now, I had a sauce for my steak! I served this…

It's been a slow week around here. I only found a couple articles that peaked my interest!

Mountain-top Dining  via

I've always loved the mountains and everything associated with it. I even took a year off in school and moved to Estes Park, CO. So mountain-top dining is right up my alley. There's just something about warming up inside over a meal while the snow falls outside that is just about perfect.

Bourbon Salted Caramel Cheesecake with Pralines - via Garden & Gun

My favorite food and restaurant articles I came across this week. I little late this week, but better late than never!

13 Ways to Use Ground Lamb - via Delish

This one caught my eye especially because of a Lamb Ragu recipe I have been contemplating in my
head! Lamb is one of my favorite meats to cook with, though I seldom use it.

Martha Hall Foose's Bacon Crackers - via Garden and Gun

I've never had bacon crackers, but in all honesty, how could you go wrong with bacon?

Indulge in Deer Valley - via Deer Valley Resort

I used to be a huge skier. I still would be if I lived closer to the mountains and it wasn't so outrageously expensive these days. So when I saw this article about the best places to eat near Deer Valley, I just had to share!

Skillet Wings - via Garden and Gun

I love wings! I was introduced to them in high school and I have been hooked ever since! This skillet version sounds amazing!

Robert et Louise

Paris! Easily one of my favorite cities!

About 5 years ago, my wife and I took a trip for our
anniversary. It was her first trip, my second. She spent weeks, if not months, ahead of the trip researching and finding everything she wanted to do, breaking it down by arrondissement. The trip was fine tuned, even with a few restaurant selections based off of the location of the museums we would be touring each day.

So one afternoon we traveled to the 11th Arrondissement, with the hopes of stopping by the National Picasso Museum. Which we did. But they were closed. For renovations.

What to do, what to do? There were no specific dinner guidelines on the plans for the evening. So we went exploring. I'm sure we found some shops to poke around in, but the standout discovery was a little restaurant we came across, called Robert et Louise. We had just seen Anthony Bourdain eat here on No Reservations and were both immediately drawn to it! We past our time waiting for them to open in a cafe d…
