Hello, foodies…


Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, stepdads, grandpas, and father-figures. I hope your celebrations (and special treatment!) last all weekend. Also, happy SUMMER to everyone! Sunday marks the first “official” day of the summer solstice and that calls for some outdoor time and at least one barbecue this weekend, don’t you think?


I’ve got two dad-approved, summertime-perfect recipes to share with you in honor of our big weekend. First up is Sunday’s ITKWD road trip recipe inspired by a Pittsburgh famous restaurant. Here’s our Loaded Roast Beef Sandwich.

Loaded Roast Beef Sandwich

Serves 4–8


This recipe is prepared with the Mad Hungry 4-Piece Air Blade Knife Set with Sheaths (K41889).


Go to David's Recipe Item Page for the full list of items that David has used in his recipes.



  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1-1/2 tsp light brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp whole grain mustard
  • 1-1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1-1/2 tsp prepared horseradish
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 Vienna rolls, halved widthwise
  • 1 lb deli-sliced roast beef
  • 1 cup prepared creamy coleslaw
  • 10 oz thin-cut French fries, cooked



  1. Combine the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, horseradish, and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl.
  2. Lay the bottom halves of the split Vienna rolls on a cutting board. Spread 2 Tbsp of the sauce on the roll bottoms and then equally divide the roast beef, coleslaw, and fries among each roll, in that order. Close the sandwich with the roll-tops.
  3. Pierce each sandwich with 2 toothpicks (or sandwich picks). Cut each sandwich between the picks and serve.


Deb from Pittsburgh…




was one of THREE foodies who nominated Primanti Brothers in Pittsburgh, PA as THE best college-town eatery.

It doesn’t matter if you go to Carnegie Mellon, Carlow, Duquesne, Robert Morris, or the University of Pittsburgh. Apparently everyone knows about and goes to Primanti Brothers and orders an “Almost Famous Sammich” which could be made with almost any kind of meat, but is topped with coleslaw and French fries. Clearly, that was a recipe we HAD to make.

Now for that second dad-approved, hello summer recipe: Grilled Pizza. Here’s a quick how-to video and I’ve got a terrific recipe on .

Hi, David. Both those recipes look delicious. I've seen Primanti Bros. Restaurant featured on an episode of Man vs. Food on the Travel Channel. It has a very interesting history. See you Sunday on my computer!! Judy in Phoenix.
