My grandmother, with whom I share the same middle name, used to sing a little song to me when I was little prior to tickling me with her fingers (which posed as a bee), "There once was a bee who lived in a tree; and all he could do was bzzzzz sting, sting, sting sting...." (then the tickling ensued).

This site is in memory of her and the warmth all grandmothers and mothers give in making good food and creating memories in the kitchen.

Flank Steak Tacos

Perfect for busy nights (if you plan ahead and marinade the steak in the fridge the night before). Let the steak sit in marinade the day before, then pull out and grill on the BBQ. Also, throw your tortillas on the grill after the grill is turned off to heat them up. Flip once then they are ready to assemble. Serve it with whatever you want. We like cheddar cheese, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, lettuce.... endless options. 


1/2 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro 

1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons canola oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 jalapeƱo pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground coriander
One 2-pound flank steak (about 1 1/2 inches thick), fat trimmed
