This is a great tip because then you don't have to cut into your streak to tell if its done. This is especially important if you have a date and want it to look really professional. Also cutting the steak and then and placing it back on the pan or grill will cause it to cook unevenly. 


How to look like a wine connoisseur without really trying

by Stoves and Bros

One question I asked by guys super often is how to navigate a wine menu.

One you know what category you are looking for its easier to approach the menu and then proceed to narrow wines down based on price.
