I’ve got a special treat today! Man, I’m excited. Brandie, from The Country Cook, is here. As in she is actually writing on my blog today. I feel like I should go vacuum. Or make sure the commode is flushed. I discovered Brandie a while back on Tasty Kitchen. I bookmarked her Butter Crumble Apple Pie and it is my #1 go-to apple pie recipe. I love it. It’s so simple to make and is just so stinkin’ good. Brandie is taking over the reigns today and sharing a delicious recipe with y’all: hamburger steaks and gravy. Nothing screams comfort food like this dish. It’s an easy, wallet-friendly dish to make that’s filled with simple ingredients and packed full of flavor. In case you haven’t noticed, these are the ‘prerequisites’, if you will, for food in my house. As a working wife and momma, I want my food easy, simple, tasty, and budget-friendly. It’s my hope that the recipes you find here fit that bill 🙂 Take it away, Brandie!
Let me introduce myself…
My name is Brandie, the cook over at The Country Cook. I live in beautiful Southwest Virginia near the Appalachian mountains. I’m a jack-of-all-trades, like most women. I’m a momma and a wife. I also work outside the home. I love to make comfort food and I like to eat it (who doesn’t?). I do my best to get supper on the table every night – which can be a challenge some nights. My food may not be considered gourmet or fancy but it feeds my family and it gathers us around the table each day. I cook a lot of the same foods my own Mom made and if my husband and son are real quiet while they eat– then I know I did good. And those are the recipes I share with everyone.
So, let’s get to the food, shall we?
I’m sharing one of my favorite comfort meals. I’m pretty sure half the meals on my blog have the words “..and gravy” attached to them. I can’t help myself. I’m a gravy loving girl. This next recipe is not only super tasty but affordable as well and should only take about 30 minutes to get on the table. I’m gonna get on with the recipe or I’ll start sounding like Rachel Ray here in a minute.
