Last night for dinner, I wasn't quite sure what to make. Since Football was on, I decided to make cheeseburgers and tots for Jack and the kids.
Rather than making a completely different meal, I decided to make a healthier version of the burger for myself.
This past weekend I ate incredibly bad and I needed to get back on track eating right.
By all means, if you want the bun and tots for your burger, do it, but if you want something a little healthier, please try this because its so good.
It's amazing how full you get from veggies. I couldn't even finish my plate.
1 lb ground beef, seasoned to your preference & shaped into burger patties (I made 4 burgers)
4 slices Colby Jack cheese
1/2 cup red onion, sliced
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
8 oz. fresh kale, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
4 tbs. olive oil, divided
1 Roma tomato, thinly sliced
In a skillet, sauté mushrooms and onions in 2 tbs. olive oil over medium heat until softened and caramelized, about 15-20 minutes. Set aside.
In a large skillet, warm remaining 2 tbs. olive oil and sauté garlic over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add kale and cover. Cook 5-10 minutes until kale has slightly wilted and softened.
While cooking kale, cook burgers either on gas grill or in a small skillet. 3-5 min per side for desired meat temperature. Place cheese on top of burgers and cook until cheese has melted.
To assemble healthy version, layer accordingly:
Kale---->Onion/mushroom mixture ---->burger---->tomato slices
This was so amazing and hit the right spot!

This dish right here is truly one of my specialties. I love making this dish. If it’s for Jacks Birthday, Valentine’s Day, or just because we want something fancy. Usually I just do the Filet with shrimp or lobster and topped with holandaise and asparagus, but this Valentine’s Day I decided to elevate my recipe a little more and try something new and this is what I came up with.

After years of cooking and sharing recipes, I have finally put together my blog site. Its been a long journey in cooking for friends and family. It wasn't until recently that I was given the confidence to actually create a blog and share everything I have learned and am still learning in the kitchen. I recently was given the opportunity to air on live tv with Good Day Sacramento. It was quite the experience. Friends and family told me I was a natural on tv, but what they didn't see on tv was how extremely nervous me. My mom and my husband were there calming me down. After each take, I would let out a big "Whew" and ask how I did. Apparently my nervousness did not show when the camera was rolling. Thank Goodness! I would like to share the recipe of my dish on Good Day Sacramento with all of you. Spaghetti Squash is that ingredient that we all seem to forget about. It's amazing and very good for you to eat. I think when people look at a spaghetti squash,
Motherhood. Where do I even begin. It is both beautiful, challenging and somehow completes every part of me. When I was a young child, I remember always picturing myself as a mommy when I grew up and I knew that I would be a great mommy and I wanted to be a best friend to my kids like my mom was to me. I never knew the challenges that came along with Motherhood. I never knew how much you would worry about these precious gifts from God that you brought into this world. A dear friend of mine is a new mommy to her second child and I have been chatting with her about her challenges she's been having and that has prompted me to write this post, because I'm hoping that, like some moms out there, I want you to know, that, yes, we go through this... so I want to share with you my story. I guess I should start with my birth stories.... Cause those are always fun... LOL With our first child, Nicholas, our birth plan, as with most, we wanted to of course go the natural way
