Recipe Keeper #10: Diana's Shortbread & Linda's Sloppy Joes

Got a question for you: Do you have a rat pack at work? You know, your "people"? These are people who you look up to professionally, and have wild conversations with. I know I'm not alone. We all have people.

Two of my people are Linda and Diana. And they rock! Linda is a special education teacher and we work very closely together on a daily basis. Diana is a Spanish teacher, and she's a native speaker. We also carpool together about three days a week. Diana and Linda make some great treats at work potlucks, and at the end of every school year Linda and her husband host a little party to celebrate the start of summer.

To do them some justice, I want to share a few of their recipes with you.

1/2 lb of ground beef
1 finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped green pepper

1/4 t. baking powder
1 t. vanilla or almond extract
