Guest Foodie: Jake Van Ness’ Grilled Steak and Blue Cheese with Berry Glaze
A few weeks ago, while I was making breakfast, Jake was watching Paula Deen and her sons on The Food Network (We love everything on TFN and on the Cooking Channel!) and when breakfast was almost done, he came downstairs just to turn on the TV and keep on watching the show. I didn’t realize that, until later that day that we went grocery shopping and he said “Don’t worry about dinner, I got it”- I also had to bake the Mardi Gras cupcakes, so the next morning I could frost them. Then I figured it out! He was going to grill something… While I was baking he was making this amazingly sweet smelling red wine reduction for a glaze. All I have to say is this is an amazing recipe, give it a try! Don’t be scared about the sweetness of the berries… The blue cheese and the wine take care of that!
