Thanks to Marvus for this awesome recipe that was in the 7/29/16 newsletter. It is perfect if you don't want to start up the grill. My husband says he can not tell the difference in this steak versus one cooked on the grill. I have used various marinades on the steak with great success.

Rib Eye Steak Recipe

Boneless Rib Eye Steak, 3/4-1 inch thick
Seasoning Salt to taste
Lemon Black Pepper
Garlic Powder
Liquid Smoke, optional( I usually omit)
Worcestershire Sauce
Olive Oil, according to directions

Drizzle steak lightly on each side with Olive Oil. Then sprinkle with desired amount of salt, pepper, garlic powder. Drizzle lightly with Worcestershire Sauce and liquid smoke on each side.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a black cast iron skillet preheat on High till HOT. Drizzle lightly just to barely coat skillet with Olive Oil. Quickly add steak and sear on each side to brown about 3-4 minutes per side. ( It is important to add steak immediately to avoid Olive Oil from getting too hot!). Turn off burner fire and cover well with foil. Crimp foil down as much as possible. Place in 425 degree preheated oven for 25 minutes for mouth watering, well done steak. If you prefer less than well done back off the cooking time.

Serve with sliced onion and bell peppers drizzled with Olive Oil, Worcestershire Sauce, and sprinkled with lemon pepper grilled on a preheated George Foreman Grill. No George Foreman Grill? Use a skillet to do the job.

I left my sister-in-law's house in Arizona on Thurday, April 27th. I got a call from her that she and two of her sisters from Oregon were coming to Texas on Thursday. One of her sisters from Oregon was turning 80 and they wanted her to be able to visit with her daughter who lived in Texas. Everyone met in Muleshoe, Texas for several days. I don't get to see my sister-in-law often since she has been moving from Arizona to Oregon. I took several days off from the newsletter to visit with her while she was in Texas. Betty and her two sisters are on their way back to Oregon. It is a 12 hour trip to Arizona and then another 24 hour driving time to Oregon. It was great to Betty, Dian and Sandy again. It was like another family reunion.

Grandma's Honey Muffins Recipe

My daughter and I love to make these delicious muffins—we'd eat them nice and warm, fresh from the oven! This recipe is a family treasure! We make them using a gluten-free flour blend and they turn out more dense, but

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup honey

Yield: 12 servings
Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a small bowl, combine egg, milk, butter and honey. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Freeze option: Freeze cooled muffins in resealable plastic freezer bags. To use, thaw at room temperature or, if desired, microwave each muffin on high for 20-30 seconds or until heated through.
Yield: 1 dozen.
