Grilled Flat Iron – Make the Steak, Not the Mistake

Well, at least I don’t have to type the ingredient amounts for this could’ve-been-delicious, flat iron steak.

Selland’s Market-Café

Selland’s Market-Café opened a new location on Broadway recently. I waited several weeks to check it out, hoping that the newness would wear off and the lines of people waiting to order would start to die down. I should have known better — Selland’s in East Sacramento has been a local favorite for a long time, and it appears that Selland’s …
