Braised Cabbage With Beef and Mashed Potato

Braised Cabbage takes me back to my childhood, one of my favorite dishes.  After I got married almost 4 years ago, I have never made this dish, and I wonder why? For some reason it seemed too complicated... not until I found this recipe with perfect instructions with images just what I needed.
Here is what we had for dinner - Braised Cabbage with Beef and Mashed Potato!!!

Rasberry and Blueberry Scones Recipe

I had my 13 years old cousin, Polina sleeping over at my house last night.  It was so much fun having her over even tho she is 10 years younger than me.  One of her favorite things to do is baking, so she encouraged me to bake something that I have never done before.  So we found this new recipe that I would like to share with you.  Its super easy and delicious:


2 cups flour
6 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
