"Beef. It's what's for dinner."... almost every night this month. I can't tell you how good it feels to sit down to a great cut of steak, perfectly cooked, on your dinner plate. This month our Allrecipes Allstars program sponsor was "Beef. It's what's for dinner."

Cheesecake-Stuffed Strawberries
I didn't have graham crackers (couldn't get any either since we are currently snowed in) so I just dipped and drizzled Godiva milk chocolate on them, mixed filling in my food processor with the hulled part of strawberries thrown in too. I suggest serving with a side of whip cream.

Doggie Biscuits I
Combining the suggestions of several reviewers, add some fresh minced garlic (known to repel fleas) and use meat greese (adds shine and reduce shedding to your dog's coat). I highly suggest substituting broth for water to increase flavor. Reduce the broth/water to 1/2c, cook for 15-20 minutes. Reducing the water makes the dough easier to handle and quicker cook time in the oven. My dog absolutely loves these and she is really picky. Handed these out for Christmas because all my family members have dogs too. Just tie a string around them in a bow!

Saltine Toffee Cookies
I love how easy and affordable these tasty treats are! Gave them as a Christmas present so I used holiday color semi-sweet chips which have red and green mixed in with the chocolate. Made them even more attractive and festive. I come from a family of foodies and all of them (including me!) never thought of saltines for a dessert. Thank you for the recipe!
