Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Quinao Black Bean Burger

Spring is in the air!  Many parts of Canada are still buried under a lot of snow, but it is April and Easter is behind us, so I can’t help thinking of days spent outside and the deliciousness of BBQ’d burgers.

As you know, Jamie and I live in an apartment so we don’t have the luxury of firing up a BBQ whenever the mood strikes us, but that has never stopped us from using our indoor cast iron grill to cook up a burger or two.  The only downside of this is the amount of smoke that is created by using the indoor grill.

This weekend I wanted to try a vegetarian burger, so see if we could get the same burger satisfaction using black beans and quinoa.  My sister, Cherie, shared this recipe with me.  She swears by it, so I thought that we could give it a try.

Turkey Burger with Grilled Pineapple

I know that fall is here, but I couldn’t resist one more, summer–time recipe to share with you before I go completely into fall mode with comfort food consisting of squash and soup recipes.

We have created burgers on here before, but this time we thought we would change it up a bit and share with you our turkey burger recipe. The great thing about burgers is you can really just throw a bunch of spices in a bowl with some ground meat and you instantly have the makings of a pretty good burger.

Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs

Now that autumn is officially here, it is time to embrace the season and start cooking more comfort foods. I don’t that there is anything more comforting than a great dinner of Spaghetti and Meatballs!

With Jamie and I trying to eat healthy (actually we are just trying to balance out all the carbohydrates that we consume through cookies 😉 ), we don’t eat a lot of pasta. However, this year I have been introduced to the wonderful world of spaghetti squash!

Ham-Burr-ger Helper

The role of today’s guest food blogger is played by Connie’s husband, Jamie.

Shortly after Connie launched A Ruby Reduction, I briefly entertained the thought of creating a companion blog focused entirely on the hamburger.

It seemed like a splendid idea at first … until I began to realize that in order to maintain such a site, I’d have to eat an (almost) ungodly number of burgers (and buns) on a regular basis.

Hey, I love hamburgers, but a man’s got his limits.

Pretzel Burger Buns

It started out as any other Sunday.  Jamie and I were planning out our meals for the week, and we were getting ready to spend another fabulous day in the kitchen.  Then Jamie made a suggestion to make some home-made hamburgers for dinner.  This was a great idea, since we haven’t had home-made burgers since Super Bowl Sunday when Jamie whipped up a batch of sliders.

“Slide” Right – Super Sliders for Super Sunday

Sliders_up_close

The role of today’s guest food blogger will once again be played by Connie’s husband, Jamie.

Super Bowl Sunday™ is this weekend and for many (read: Connie), what is on the menu shares equal, if not greater importance, with what is on the television.

If you’re not a fan of football, chances are all this talk about pigskin leading up to the big game has conjured up images of bacon frying away in the pan. OK, perhaps that only happens in our house…

This year, though, it was supposed to be no contest; food was going to play second fiddle.
