Wheel of Fortune Fun!

The wheel of fortune, as it is commonly called, has been to subject to increasing popularity in the United States within the last 8 years. In American casinos the wheel of fortune is more commonly known as the money wheel, in which symbols have dollar dominations: $1, $2, $5, $10, and $20. The payoff for each segment corresponds to the dollar amount—such as the $20 section pays 20:1. Players win these odds if the ticker at the top of wheel lands on the section that the player has bet on. Similar to slot machines, the wheel is need more on chance than anything else. The high gamble involved in securing winnings, makes the game that much more fun.

Celebration of Fathers

Woohoo!!!!!!! This Sunday I get to celebrate my favorite man in this world, who happens to be co-owner and of D&E casino Services. From the of its inception in 1924, Fathers' day has been a Holiday that revolves around a special dinner and thanksgiving for fathers. As such, I was inspired to share two recipes which i am sure my father and yours would enjoy:

Guinness-Braised Chuck Steak and Horseradish Mashed Potatoes



1 1/2 pounds boneless chuck steak, trimmed

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons olive oil

1/2 cup chopped carrot

1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth, divided

1 teaspoon dark brown sugar

1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary

1 (8-ounce) package presliced mushrooms

1 garlic clove, minced

2 bay leaves

1 (12-ounce) bottle Guinness Stout


2 pounds peeled baking potatoes, quartered

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup fat-free milk

1/4 cup finely chopped green onions

1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream

2 tablespoons prepared horseradish

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1.To prepare steak, sprinkle steak with 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add steak; cook 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove steak from pan; set aside. Add 1 1/2 cups onion, chopped carrot, 2 tablespoons broth, and sugar. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook 10 minutes. Stir in rosemary, mushrooms, and garlic. Cover and cook 2 minutes. Add bay leaves, stout, remaining broth, and steak; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour and 30 minutes or until steak is tender.
2.To prepare potatoes, place potatoes in a large saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil; simmer 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain. Return potatoes to pan. Add butter; beat with a mixer at medium speed just until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients. Keep warm.
3.Remove steak from pan; keep warm. Discard bay leaves. Increase heat to medium-high; cook 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Spoon stout mixture over steak. Serve with potatoes.
