  • Hamburger Steak with Onion Gravy … Yes, Please

    Hamburger Steak may feel a little old school but I tell you…this hamburger steak is AMAZING!  Don’t believe me… try it. Oh the Onions… So fun fact, I have not always been the biggest fan of onions.  Yep so I never have onions on my burger or hot dog, or in my salads.  I really only love onions when they are browned, like in this gravy, or onion soup, or cut up small for a hint of flavor.  I know, weird but it is just how I am.   These onions are made even better as they are cooked in the same skillet as the hamburger steaks just adding even…

  • Easy Shortbread Cookies

    Shortbread Cookies are my mom’s most favorite cookie.  Anytime I ask her what she wants for her birthday or a holiday treat she says shortbread…and these are her MOST FAVORITE recipe. What makes them so special? First thing is the Vanilla Bean Paste.  It adds a true vanilla flavor to these cookies, along with the cute little specks from the vanilla bean making these cookies look a little bit fancier then your typical shortbread.   If you do not have vanilla bean pasta that is ok you can use vanilla extract, but of you can get your hands on vanilla bean extract I would.
