If you are looking for a special steak for your sweetie, look no further. This takes less than thirty minutes from start to finish; less if you choose to broil instead of BBQ. Flavorful and easy, this steak is tough to beat. I serve this with brown and serve sourdough bread or rolls. If you're really hungry, crumble some additional bacon and add a baked potato. Add candles and a bottle of full bodied red wine (like a cabernet from the Alexander Valley) for a romantic evening.
Such a refreshing salad and it holds nicely in the refrigerator if you want to make it ahead. Light and nutty bulgur is soaked in water until it 's fluffy and ready to be combined with parsley, mint, tomatoes, and a bit of oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Serves four.
You can make this salsa as fiery as you like by adding more or less peppers. But whatever you do, don 't leave them out. And because everything goes into the food processor, you can make the salsa chunky or smooth with just a flick of the switch.
