Fresh cracked pepper brings life to steak, which finishes this easy pasta dish with a perfect kick of heat.
Tip: If you don’t keep a pepper grinder in your house, you can wrap the peppercorns in tinfoil or a plastic bag, and beat the packet with something heavy, like a hammer or cast iron pan, to crack the pepper.

Feeding others or providing edible holiday gifts is a long held tradition, and we’re all for it! Giving food gifts—especially homemade ones—is an act that comes from the heart and shows care and consideration. And that’s what you’re going for when you give a food gift, right? Purchased food gifts of high-quality provisions or local specialties are also welcomed by most (I myself love getting those nice boxes of citrus fruit) and the convenience factor for the giver cannot be beat.
