Summer Barbecue Recipe – Peppercorn Steak

peppercorn steak recipe

Weekend barbecues here in Southern California bring out recipes for hot dogs, burgers, and burned buns. Ok maybe not the burned buns, that is just what happens to this SoCal pinup in her life. While I love me a good burger, hmmm, and a good dog can’t be beat, how about we do something different.

Bring this peppercorn steak recipe out at your next BBQ get together and you will be the star of the summer.

The End To Boardwalk Empire Is Coming

boardwalk empire final season

All empires come to an end, and the end is in sight for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. The Steve Buscemi led powerhouse will begin its final season, season 5, September 7th.

Word is that though the first four season took place in the roaring 1920s on the Atlantic City seaboard, this final season is in 1931 right in the heart of the depression. Oh and it will only last for 8 episodes, sorry fans.

Check out the preview below.

Bastille Day Inspired Cocktails – Recipes

champgne cocktail bastille day recipeBastille Day Cocktail- The Marie Antoinette

Viva La France! Monday is Le quatorze juillet, Bastille Day, of France. Consider it as the French 4th of July, it is their independence day. Bastille Day marks the end of the monarchy of France and the start of the Republic.

To celebrate this day of freedom for my French friends, and Francophiles here in the states, I have a few French inspired cocktails. We have Champagne cocktails, absinthe, and more!

The Marie Antoinette
No cake required!

This is by far the most indulgent cocktail for the day. And if you don’t want to have a cocktail, the Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne is exquisite on its own.

1 oz. CAMUS VS Elegance Cognac
¼ oz. raspberry liqueur
¼ oz. Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne
Garnish with Chinese star anise

Combine CAMUS VS Elegance Cognac and raspberry liqueur in a Champagne flûte. Top with Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne. Garnish with Chinese star anise and serve.

More BASTILLE DAY COCKTAILS,  including absinthe and Cognac, after the jump!

Enter rockabilly star Chris Isaak’s Herb Ritts directed video for Wicked Game. Vicotira’s Secret supermodel Helena Christensen prancing around in her unmentionables with Isaak in his dress pants and undershirt.
