Beautiful Homemade Hamburger Buns

I remember hearing years ago about a friend who made her own saltine crackers. I thought she was crazy! You can buy them so cheaply! Why bother? Perhaps you’ll think I’m the crazy lady today when I tell you I made my own hamburger buns last week!

My husband went to the grocery store and found a package of really nice beef patties marked down. When he brought them home, I knew burgers were on the menu for the next day, but I had no buns. I’ve always wanted to try making my own! Soooo, the next morning I went to King Arthur Flour and looked for a recipe! I found Beautiful Burger Buns on their site and set in to make them. It started out as a necessity and ended up as the best decision I’ve made in the kitchen in a while!

A Heart For Home

After being away from home for over half of the month of October, my heart and feet have been very happy to be back in my residence! I am very much a home-body, loving everything about home life. I think I’ve learned to appreciate it even more after so much absence.

The Cookie Recipe That’s Hard to Resist

The recipe I’m sharing today brings a bit of nostalgia to my heart. I remember eating these cookies as a little girl when my mom would make them as an after school treat. They were my FAVORITE cookie!

Everyone needs a cookie recipe that can be finished in 30 minutes because there are times that you need dessert in a hurry. There are also times when a person craves a dark fudgy chocolate cookie that is easy to make and hard to resist! These are made with oats, so they’re also gluten-free!

A couple weeks ago when I was at my parents’, I wanted to make something sweet for my dad and remembered that he loves these cookies, too. I pulled up my blog for the recipe and found that it wasn’t there! After posting my favorite recipes for thirteen years, I can’t believe I haven’t shared this one before now! I’m going to fix that today!
