We always have leftover steak and we love arugula, so this is a great light weeknight meal –especially when heirloom tomatoes are in season. Serve with a baguette, French cheeses and a light fruity wine.

Welcome to Columbine Kitchen!

My name is Kristin. Columbine Kitchen is where my passion for creative cooking, eating, and sharing recipes lives. Here, you’ll find a collection of my recipes that have become the go-to meals for my family and friends. Many were passed down to me while others I made up or modified to fit my own tastes and needs.

The recipes are a reflection of how I feed my family. I aim to use the freshest, finest whole food ingredients available. I believe in using butter and cream and only use high quality prepared or packaged items to save time. I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do. I look forward to hearing how they turn out for you!
