Filet of Sirloin with Rosemary Butter Recipe // There are some times in life when there is nothing better than a good steak. Seriously… nothing better!! My love of steak started with my first pregnancy. I couldn’t get enough steak. I wanted it morning, noon and night. I tried all different kinds of recipes and basically every form of steak that you could imagine. You know what I learned… When it comes to a good steak recipe, keep it SIMPLE!

Let the steak shine and take center stage. Recently, I had the opportunity to sample some Certified Angus Beef® brand steaks and boy can those steaks SING!

When you have a good quality steak, you really don’t need anything else other than some salt and pepper and a few simple rules for the grill, maybe a touch of herbs. I found a great recipe on the Certified Angus Beef® brand website for Grilled Ribeye Steak with Classic Steak Butter and put my little spin on it.

Certified-Angus-Beef-with-grilled-peaches

First of all, I used a Filet of Sirloin rather than the Ribeye cut and simplified the recipe down to a few basic simple ingredients.

Filet of Sirloin with Rosemary Butter

4 Filet of Sirloin

generous salt and pepper

1/2 stick of unsalted butter at room temperature

1/2 teaspoon of fresh minced rosemary

a pinch of salt

Season the steak generously with salt and pepper. Place on a very hot grill. After 2 minutes, flip the steak over and cook for another 2 minutes. Continue that process until you get to the temperature that you prefer. We like our steak medium rare, so we grilled our steak for a total of 12 minutes, turning it every 2 minutes. Let rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.

For the butter, place the room temperature butter in a small bowl with a pinch of salt and the minced rosemary. Stir until completely combined. Place on a sheet of parchment paper and roll butter into a log. Place in freezer for 20 minutes. Once butter is chilled, cut into medallions and place on hot steak and serve.

This quite honestly is my all-time favorite meal. I paired it with smashed fingerling potatoes and some grilled peaches and it was truly divine. We also applied the same recipe and cooking method with some New York Strip Steaks and paired them with the smashed fingerling potatoes and thick slices of beef steak tomatoes topped with salt, pepper and chives. Seriously, this meal is out of this world!

Certified-Angus-Beef-from-WhipperBerry

When you have quality meat like the Certified Angus Beef® brand, you know that you are getting quality steaks and pairing them with simple, yet flavorful sides will take your meal or event to a whole new level. To find where you can purchase Certified Angus Beef® brand products visit their site to find a location in your area!

What is your favorite way to serve steak? Looking for more inspiration? Follow the folks at the Certified Angus Beef® brand on Instagram for all kinds of mouth watering ideas!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Certified Angus Beef via Burst Media. The opinions and text are all mine.

Our family has a healthy obsession with peaches. We will take them in any form fresh right off the tree, canned, baked even frozen! This summer has been the year of the peach. My husband has been buying them by the case load and we have been madly canning them in hopes of prolonging the season. The other day I thought it would be fun to take some of our canned peaches and make them into tasty peaches and cream dairy-free popsicles…

Dairy-Free-Peaches-and-Cream-Popsicles-1

I love finding ways to take those flavors I love, and make them a little healthier for my family. I have several friends who are all dairy-free and I thought that I would make these tasty treats so that they can enjoy this flavor combination as well.

I used Silk Vanilla Soy Milk for the cream part of my peaches and cream concoction. With the Silk Soy Protein I know that my family is getting some nutritional value even when they are feasting on popsicles rather than just empty calories like most. Check out these amazing benefits of Silk Vanilla Soy Milk…

• 6 grams of heart-healthy soy protein2

• 50% more calcium than dairy milk1

• 100% cholesterol-free

• Low in saturated fat

• Free of dairy, lactose, gluten, casein, egg and MSG

• Verified by the Non-GMO Project’s product verification program

• No artificial colors, flavors or funny business

Dairy-Free-Peaches-and-Cream-Popsicles-4

Pair all that plant protien goodness with these super easy to make pops and you are a WINNER! Here’s how you make them.

Peaches and Cream Dairy-Free Popsicles

1 3/4 cups Silk Vanilla Soy Milk

1 diced canned peach

1/4 cup canned peach juice

1/2 packet of dried vanilla pudding mix

In a medium bowl, combine Silk Vanilla Soy Milk, peach juice and pudding mix. Whisk and set aside. Dice peach into bite sized pieces and add to the popsicle base. Pour base into popsicles molds and place in freezer for at least 4 hours. Carefully remove from mold and enjoy!!

You can also follow along with all the Silk news on their Facebook page!!

1 Silk Vanilla Soymilk: 45% DV of calcium vs. 30% DV in 2% dairy milk. USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, Release 26. Data consistent with typical 2% dairy milk.

2 In a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, 25 grams of soy protein per day may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of Silk Vanilla Soymilk has 6.25 grams.

The polka-dots look like gold foil, even though you didn’t have to take all the time and resources to create gold foil polka dots by hand… SCORE number 2!!

All you have to do is cut out the letters, punch holes in the top of the letters and string them together with some baker’s twine, ribbon or yarn. I used some gold shimmer baker’s twine from the TomKat Studio Shop It’s just that easy!

Whether you like it or not, it’s back to school time! If you are anything like our family, that means a busy August, planning and preparing for the new year. We have new outfits for the first day, new school supplies and for sure everyone needs a haircut and revised back to school hair care routine. Even the littles need to look spiffy for the new year of Pre-School!

Gage-&-Evyn

Gage and I joined our friend Evyn at our favorite hair stylist location here in Lincoln!
Some were more excited than others! That little spunky red head of mine… He’s not a fan of baths or showers… Nor does he like anyone messing with his hair. I guess that means he’s a boy! Having three daughters before him and no brothers of my own, I’m in new territory here. My husband assures me, it’s normal.

One way we’ve found that helps the process is using the right products. For us, from the very beginning, we started with JOHNSONS® Baby Shampoo NO MORE TEARS™ Formula. Now that he’s getting older and has more of that scrumptious red hair, we needed a bit more than what the baby shampoo had to offer. So, we upgraded to JOHNSONS® NO MORE TANGLES® Shampoo…

The reason we love JOHNSONS® products is not only do they make bath time easier with their NO MORE TEARS® formula along with their NO MORE TANGLES®, but I LOVE their commitment to making their products the safest out there for our kiddos. Check out this video about their commitment to excellence…

I know as a parent, that using these products isn’t going to harm my kiddos and that really gives me piece of mind.  Especially when you see these sweet faces!

Johnson's®-No-More-Tangles®-on-#WhipperBerry-6
I love this line with their JOHNSONS® NO MORE TANGLES® Shampoo & Conditioner, JOHNSONS® NO MORE TANGLES®  Leave-in Conditioner & JOHNSONS® NO MORE TANGLES® Detangling Spray.

Spunky Gage loves the NO MORE TEARS® formula, but sweet Evyn is a HUGE fan of the NO MORE TANGLES® with her soft and luscious long blonde hair.

Johnson's®-No-More-Tangles®-on-#WhipperBerry-10
Now, when I was a girl with thick long hair… The idea of my Mom combing out my hair, let alone blow drying it, sent shivers down my spine. That was back before the revolution of the no more tangles movement. Evyn doesn’t have to worry about that one bit!

Johnson's®-No-More-Tangles®-on-#WhipperBerry-14
Now that they have both had their back-to-school hair cuts…
These two kiddos with their clean, silky smooth hair are ready to tackle the world of Pre-School!!

I’m over the moon excited to share with you a project that I’ve been working on for a bit… Our new Mission Bound Shop!

Mission-Bound-Shirts-32

So, what is Mission Bound? Many of you know that I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Our family has a really good friend named Austyn, who has recently joined the church. He’s 18 years old and he is so excited about his new found faith, and he can’t wait to go and serve a two year mission to share the gospel to some lucky place somewhere around the world! The issue, he is a first generation member of the church and will need to raise the funds for his mission on his own.  You can read more about his story here

This did not get him down one bit, he sprang into action and said, “What if I were to sell t-shirts to raise money for my mission!” And that is where it began. Austyn and I teamed up and created some stylish tees with up lifting messages and that is how The Mission Bound Shop was born!

Mission-Bound-Shirts-Austyn-McKee

Today is the grand opening of the shop. We have three designs to choose from…

Mission-Bound-Shirts-12

Forget

Mission-Bound-Shirts-9

Dream

Mission-Bound-Shirts-1

Work

Soon we will also have a couple more designs in the shop…

Mission-Bound-Shirts-6

Faith

Mission-Bound-Shirts-3

Mormon

We will also be adding regular tees along with colored tees, hoodies and bags in the near future. We also carry extended sizes, extra small through 3XL.

We are super excited about the designs that we have to launch today and hope that together,  we can help Austyn get out on his mission! Once Austyn’s mission is funded, a percentage of the sales will then go to help other missionaries pay for their missions as well, through the Church’s mission fund.  Go #teammissionbound

Oh, one more thing… each month we will be giving away a free Mission Bound shirt to one lucky member of Team Mission Bound. If you take a photo of yourself with your Mission Bound shirt and add the hashtag #teammissionbound  on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, you will be entered to win a free shirt!!

You can follow Mission Bound on Instagram and Facebook!

BB-Frösch-Chalk-Paint-Powder-Round

If you have been following me on Instagram for the last little bit, you’ve seen some of the fun furniture projects that I’ve been working on using BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder.

WhipperBerry-furniture-makeovers

What is BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder? It is the most amazing paint product that I have found… EVER!! This is seriously a game changer in the paint world.

We know we all love to use Chalk Paint for all kinds of projects, whether they are furniture projects for the house or simple craft projects. The issue is that boutique chalk paints have a PREMIUM price tag which is typically too expensive for most consumers.  Another issue… You have a limited selection of colors. You only have at most, 35 colors to choose from. What if you want the chalk paint look but they don’t have the color that you would like… You are out of luck.

You can try to create your own chalk paint with common items like Plaster of Paris, but you have several issues there as well. First off… Plaster of Paris is meant to harden. So… whatever paint you mix, within a few hours turns to rock. Second, did you know that some components in Plaster of Paris are on the hazardous chemicals list? You can actually burn yourself using the stuff!!

I’ve teamed up with a good friend of mine who has developed the perfect product… Chalk Paint Powder.

bbfrosch-Chalk-Paint-Powder

You add this powder to any flat latex paint and turn it into chalk paint for a fraction of the cost. Plus you can mix up smaller batches if you want, cutting your cost even further. For example…

WhipperBerry-BB-Frosch-Makeovers-15

I painted this dresser in three hours, start to finish, with an 8 oz. sample pot of paint from Home Depot. The dresser was purchased on Craig’s list for $16, the sample pot was $2.95 at Home Depot, the BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder cost $2.50 and the soft wax used to finish the project was less than $1.00. Total… I was able to refinish this dresser for $6.45!!

Total cost for the dresser… $22.45!!

That’s INCREDIBLE!!!

This desk…

WhipperBerry-BB-Frosch-Makeovers-4

Again, it took a sample pot of  Behr flat paint $2.95 at Home Depot, $2.50 for BB Frösch Chalk Paint Powder less than $1.00 for wax and gold spray paint. New hardware was $12.00 and the cost of the desk from a garage sale… $10.00.

Total for the entire piece (including the desk)… $28.45!!

Like I said before… GAME CHANGER!!

BB-Frosch-Chalk-Paint-Powder

How fun is this!?!?

Krisitin and I will be traveling the country teaching workshops on how to use this aaaaamazing new product! Our first stop… DENVER!

 + Herbal Tea Lemonade a Starbucks Knockoff +

Herbal-tea-lemonade-from-WhipperBerry-8

I am a HUGE lemonade addict… Yes, it’s that serious. I would rather drink lemonade than any other beverage on the planet. There is just something special about that sweet pucker of lemon flavor that I just adore. I tend to like my lemonade high on the pucker meeter, leaning more for the tart rather than the sweet.

As much as I love regular, fresh squeezed lemonade I don’t love all the calories and sugar that come along with that. I tend to keep the good stuff only for special occasions. Starbucks has a shaken lemonade that I just adore. It’s a combination of herbal tea and lemonade and it’s divine.  Again, this is more of a drink reserved for special times due to the sugar content and the high price tag.  Soooo, what’s a girl to do when she has a craving for Starbucks shaken Passion Tea Lemonade… I DIY it of course!

Herbal-tea-lemonade-from-WhipperBerry-6

I have experimented with a few different flavors on top of the Passion tea and have found three that I just love. Celestial Seasonings Country Peach Passion is my all time favorite paired with lemonade and then my other two favorites are Tazo Passion and Vanilla Rooibos Parfait.

Herbal-tea-lemonade-from-WhipperBerry-3

I brew up some tea using two tea bags, steeped in roughly two cups of hot water. Then I transfer the tea to a bottle and add more water until the bottle is full. My bottles hold a little more than 1 quart of liquid. If your container is larger, you may want to steep more than 2 tea bags.

Herbal-tea-lemonade-from-WhipperBerry-4

To make the herbal tea lemonade, fill a large glass or jar with ice and a single serving Crystal Light lemonade packet

Herbal-tea-lemonade-from-WhipperBerry-7

Then I pour the tea over the lemonade mix and the ice, stir and enjoy!

Herbal-tea-lemonade-from-WhipperBerry-9

+ Mason jar lid from The Mason Bar Company // Jar lid painted gold with Elmer’s gold Painters Markers +

My all time favorite herbal tea lemonade is the peach tea mixed with raspberry lemonade… To die for flavor!! What I love about this drink is the burst of fruit flavor without any of the guilt!!  What are your favorite flavor combinations?
