Grandma's BBQ Hamburgers (aka Sloppy Joes)

Growing up my grandma would make her BBQ hamburgers for us every Labor Day.  In the town I grew up in there was a parade in the morning on Labor Day.  After the parade we would make our way to grandma's house and have lunch.  Every year it was the same, Grandma's BBQ Hamburgers, and I looked forward to it every year.  After filling our bellies we would head to the fair, and more often than not, empty our bellies on the rides. :)

Grandma passed away in 2000 and the only thing I asked for of hers was this recipe.  It's now my sweet little 5 year old's favorite meal.  Well, besides macaroni and cheese.

1 pound ground beef
1 cup onion, diced
1 1/2 tablespoons mustard
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
Salt and pepper, to taste

Brown beef and onion in a skillet over medium heat.  Once cooked, pour into a slow cooker and add remaining ingredients.  Stir until well combined and cook on low for 3-4 hours.

Recipe from Grandma Leta.

Baking Birthday Party

I'm baaaack!  After taking a little break I thought I would come back with my sweet little 8 year old's Baking Party we did for her birthday.  She LOVES to bake and so a baking party was the perfect fit for her.  She wanted red and blue for her colors and I think everything turned out super cute!

 The dessert table.  I love how the painted bake-ware turned out!

 The banner is aprons for the girls.

The flowers are removable and can be used as a pin or a hair clip.

 My sweet little Asia!

 The kids had lots and lots of sweets.  Like cake pops...

 Marshmallows dipped in chocolate...

 Chocolate covered Oreos...

 Pretzel rods dipped in chocolate....

 Lots of candy...

 And of course, the cake.  

 The girls got their own cupcake decorating kits with frosting and lots of sprinkles.

 And decorated their own cupcakes.

 When their cupcakes were decorated, I boxed them up in these cute little boxes, tied them up and added a tag that says "Have your cupcakes and eat them too!"

Each of the girls also got to take home a baking pan with brownie mix and a wire whisk.
