Nanny is a great cook and we featured one of her all-star recipes, Sausage Balls. If you want an easy breakfast addition (that can be made ahead...check these out.

If you need a main dish to try with this side try out the Steak Kabobs.  They are super easy.

Don't have a dessert?  The asparagus and steak are so healthy you could splurge on dessert.  Try the Chocolate Cobbler.  You will eat very slowly so that you can savor each and every bite.
