Betty’s Creamy Horseradish Sauce for Beef

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a luscious Horseradish Sauce. This is a great combination of mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon rind, and grated horseradish. This wonderful sauce is quite versatile, and you can use it in many ways!


½ cup mayonnaise
½ cup sour cream
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/8 to 1/4 cup grated horseradish (I used the jarred variety, and I only used 1/8 cup; it’s up to your taste. Don’t use the creamy style, because it is not strong enough.)

In a small bowl, combine ½ cup mayonnaise, ½ cup sour cream, 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind, and 1/8 to 1/4 cup grated horseradish. Stir until well combined. Pour into a small serving dish, and provide a serving spoon. I serve this with roast beef, prime rib, and steak. It is also a great spread for roast beef sandwiches, plus you can use it with anything that is enhanced by horseradish flavor. I will be uploading the beef that this sauce was made to accompany tomorrow! I hope you like it! –Betty 

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno And Chicken Bite Recipe-Crawford Farm Meats Etc


Time To Prepare: 20 mins

Time To Cook: 10 mins

Total Needed Time: 30 mins




What You Will Need:

Eight chicken tenders, flatten and sliced in two

Three-ounce package of softened cream cheese

One finely chopped seedless jalapeno pepper**

Eight slices bacon, cut in half

What To Do:

Take each chicken tender and dab about a half tsp teaspoon of the softened cream cheese on the top. Then sprinkle about a quarter tsp of the chopped peppers on top the cream cheese. Roll up chicken tenders to close in the peppers and cream cheese. Next take a piece of bacon and wrap it around the rolled chicken tender, securing it with a toothpick to keep it in place. Now grill the bites until your bacon is nice and crisp on all sides and the chicken is cooked through. Lastly, serve on a platter alone or with a dip and enjoy!



It is best to wear some type of protective gloves when handling fresh jalapenos. Otherwise the oil will most definitely attach itself on your hands and it is not easy to get off and if put too close to your eye could cause a lot of pain!

How to Accomplish Fitness Goals for the Whole Year

It’s not true that people have an innate dislike for accomplishing fitness goals. The problem perhaps is the goals themselves. According to Gregory D. McCollum, co-owner of the Training Loft, a private personal training studio in Chicago:

“Start slowly, but do it with zeal. Ninety percent of all fitness programs work if you simply apply yourself. You will see a positive change in yourself by improving your cardiovascular health, increasing your flexibility and building up your strength.”

Starting out right

The first thing to do is to acquire a fitness evaluation. This can be gotten from your local gym or from your doctor. After getting the results, get a good trainer to tailor a fitness program that would match your needs.

If your cardiovascular health needs improving, you can readily engage in power walking. Power walking with constant and rhythmic pumping of the arms and legs can raise the heart rate and burn calories. Get a pedometer so you can see your “progress” immediately.

Other exercises

If you want to tone your thighs and your buttocks, consider doing lunges. Lunges can easily be carried out in hallways or in any long strip of space where you can go backward and forward easily. At work, consider using the stairs when going to upper floors. It might take longer, but it will be good exercise. Eventually, going up three floors would be as easy as one, two, and three.

If you have a pre-existing membership to a fitness club or a locally gym, take advantage of exercise equipment there. Forget “bulking up” during the first few weeks. Lose as much fat as you can first by engaging in aerobic exercises like treadmills and stationary bikes. If you can engage in exercise for 30 to 40 minutes in this equipment, you’re well on your way to improving your cardiovascular fitness.

Real health threats

According to Stephanie Kong, author of A Minute for Your Health: The ABC’s for Improved Health and Longevity:

“Two out of three people will die from cardiovascular disease or cancer. Eating too much fat contributes to both. Most Americans, even slim ones, eat too much fat. Why take the risk? It’s time you discovered how delicious low-fat eating can be.”

More fish, please!

One easy way to balance the good and bad cholesterol in one’s diet is by eating more fish. Once you fill up on good sources of protein like fish, high-fat red meats won’t be as satisfying. There are plenty of recipes floating around the Internet to make fish more interesting. Frying, filleting and roasting are only three of many ways to cook fish.

McCollum advises regarding brisk walking, the urge of bingeing and cooking at home:
“Take a brisk walk when you feel a binge is coming on. You’ll find it refreshing, and you’ll lose weight. Cook more at home. That way you can control the quality of your food and you can control portion sizes. You are the only person who can prevent you from meeting your goals.”
You’ve heard the experts; now it’s time to turn those fitness goals into reality.

Since humans are just a form of animal, aren’t we being cannibalistic when we eat the meat of other animals?

What’s the beef with meat? This question can be answered in two nutritional words: fat and cholesterol.

Too much fat. No matter how you slice it, meat is high in fat. Unlike milk, in which you can separate out part or all of the fat, you can never get rid of all the fat in meat, no matter how well you trim it. Even the lean parts are laced with fat. Extra lean select-grade beef contains around seven percent fat.

Wrong fat. Not only is there too much fat in meat, it’s the wrong kind. Nearly half the fat in meat is the artery-clogging, saturated type. And, of course, meat is also high in cholesterol. Beef fat is more saturated than poultry fat because the bacteria in the ruminant stomach of cattle hydrogenate, or saturate, the fats in the plants that cows eat. It’s like having a fat factory inside the food source.

Fat without fiber. Unlike meat, plant foods that are low in fat and high in fiber tend to pass through the intestines rapidly, causing less upset and fewer problems, such as gastroesophageal reflux. Meat has a double fault. It’s high in fat and contains no fiber, so it takes longer to empty from the stomach and pass through the intestines. While most people do not experience "indigestion" from meat, those who suffer from reflux should not eat much meat, as it may aggravate the problem.

Problems with protein. Not only are the fats in meat unhealthy, meat proteins have also recently come under fire. Recent evidence suggests that animal proteins increase blood cholesterol levels, while plant proteins, especially soy, decrease them. Meats contain high levels of the amino acid L-lysine, which increases insulin production, prompting the liver to release fat and cholesterol into the bloodstream. If L-lysine is experimentally added to animal diets, blood cholesterol levels increase by over fifty percent and the animals get plump. Studies show that substituting 30 grams of soy protein daily for a meat meal dramatically reduces cholesterol levels. So, the Japanese may have lower cholesterol levels than Americans, not only because they eat less meat, but also because they eat more soy. The quality of meat protein ranks below that of egg white, fish, and dairy products.

I’m a veggie. 😉
