Tomahawk Cowboy Ribeye Steak for Dad


Happy Father's Day!

Today we are serving a show stopper for dinner: Tomahawk Cowboy Ribeye Steak.
This steak is not only rich and delicious but a stunning piece of meat!
My husband and I have shared one before at a steak house and it was simply amazing so when I saw them available at our local meat counter I had to try it myself!

What is a Tomahawk Steak?

Tomahawk Steak, aka Cowboy Ribeye is a bone-in ribeye steak cut with the entire rib bone intact. It got it's name because it has the appearance of a Tomahawk axe. They are large enough to serve at least two and make for a beautiful, impressive plate presentation.

  • 2 large eggs, room temp
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

  • 1 tbsp vanilla 
For the frosting:
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar Honey Butter, room temp {I used Chef Shamy brand}

*No honey butter? You sub 2 sticks of softened butter plus 2 tbsp honey

Directions: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2.  Line a muffin pan with paper liners and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, add the softened butter and brown sugar and cream with a mixer until fluffy. 
  5. With the mixer running on low, add in the eggs then the honey, vanilla and buttermilk.
  6. Next, slowly pour in the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  7. Scoop the batter into the prepared pan, filling 3/4 full.
  8. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  9. Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 
  10. To make the frosting: in a mixing bowl add honey butter and powdered sugar.
  11. Add milk in for the right consistency {thin enough to pipe}.
  12. Add to a piping bag then pipe the frosting using a wide tip to make a bee hive shape.
  13. Drizzle honey over the tops of the cupcakes and top with bee decorations {optional}.
  14. Serve and enjoy!
I found these cute bumblebee sugar decorations at William Sonoma. 
They inspired these fun honey cupcakes!
 You need 1/4 cup honey plus extra for drizzling .
I used my favorite American clover honey. I could eat it with a spoon!
 In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
 In a large mixing bowl, add the softened butter and brown sugar and cream with a mixer until fluffy. 
 I love using buttermilk in place of milk in my baked goods. 
It makes them extra moist and tender.
I also make my own by adding 1 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice per 1 cup milk.
 With the mixer running on low, add in the eggs one at a time until incorporated. 
 Then add the honey, vanilla and buttermilk. Mix well.
 Next, slowly pour in the dry ingredients. 
Mix until combined. 
Scoop the batter into a prepared muffin pan, filling 3/4 full.
Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for 5 minutes.
Then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 
 To make the frosting: in a mixing bowl add honey butter and powdered sugar.
 I made my frosting with this Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Honey Butter from Chef Shamy.
 Add milk in for the right consistency {thin enough to pipe}.
 Add to a piping bag, half at a time.
  Pipe the frosting using a wide tip to make a bee hive shape.
 Drizzle honey over the tops of the cupcakes and top with bee decorations.
 Serve and enjoy your sweet summertime treat!

Jelly Filled Giant Donut Cake

Ava graduated kindergarten last week and after I cried for most of the day {happy tears}, I decided to make her this Jelly Filled Giant Donut Cake to celebrate. It was a hit with my foodie family and a fun treat to make! I used a special donut pan from Hobby Lobby but you could also try two round pans and trim it to fit together. The sky's the limit on flavors, filling, and toppings but I went with vanilla cake and strawberry jam and pink topping with sprinkles. 
Delish and perfect for National Donut Day this week!

Military Dad Father's Day Gift Guide

This post contains affiliate links.

Happy June y'all! I have been searching on Amazon for gifts for a month now, both for Father's Day and for my birthday this month. My family and I, including my parents, my husband and my kids, like to make Amazon gift lists since we are all Amazon Prime members. So every holiday and birthday we simply log in and pick a gift and have it shipped. I love it because you know you are getting something that they really want and it's more personal than a gift card.
I had my husband, who is in the Army, make a Father's Day gift list and most of his choices were military themed. I decided to add a few of my gift ideas to the list and share it with y'all today because I just love all the fun and patriotic presents we found!
This Military Dad Father's Day Gift Guide makes finding a gift for your veteran husband, father, uncle, brother, or friend as easy as 1,2, 3. Check out our top 20 military themed gift items and let me know your favorite!

Best Ever Chick-fil-A Copycat Coleslaw

One of my favorite restaurant side dishes ever, Chick-fil-A coleslaw, was taken off the menu a few years ago. But have no fear- here is the recipe from Chick-fil-A themselves so you can make this tasty dish at home! 
We are a Chick-fil-A loving family! I was even a part of the #ChickfilAMoms program for two years and made a video to thank them for the great opportunity!
