Fiesta Steak

Get ready to indulge yourself with a steakhouse-quality dish coming from another one of Kathey Jo’s Kitchen recipes. One of my most sought-after meals is this tequila marinaded steak.

These are perfect for the holidays, a surprise desert away from the classics! Not to mention they’ll go delightfully with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee.

I recommend whipping these up with the kiddos! I recently baked these cookies with my grandchildren, and we had so much fun. Something about making a cookie that looks like an actual apple is exciting to the kids. They especially loved putting in the wooden sticks that mimicked the ones on an actual caramel apple...
