Steak and Tomatoes

An introduction to The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook, including Jaden’s unforgettable steak recipe (and OH, the tomatoes, people, the tomatoes, all sweet and saucy in a sweet 'n' sour sauce). The steaks are easy enough for a weeknight but special enough for a weekend celebration, perfect for late-summer meals. COMPLIMENTS!

No problem, green beans are great too! Come August, my northern soul longs for cooler climes. This year, a week in British Columbia was penciled in, then erased. Then a heat wave descended upon Missouri, temps climbed into the high 90s for weeks on end. My garden wilted, I wilted. So I was okra-green with envy when friends headed to northern Michigan earlier this month, packing up cooking gear and garden vegetables for ten days at a family cabin Anne (readers know Anne as the Pastry Whisperer of Flaky Tender Pie Crust fame, St. Louisans know her from Kitchen Conservatory , St. Louis' great kitchen store and cooking school) has been visiting since she was a girl. Some times Anne blogs about the relaxed cooking that happens in a summer cabin on a northern lake. This year, her fish and sausage chow
