Grilled Turkey Burgers

Grilled TurkeyBurgers

These have got to be one of the best turkey burgers I have ever had. I’m not just saying that because I made them either. They are moist and juicy.  I love a burger with good char marks on them and these fit the bill perfectly. I have also cooked these on the stove top and they come out great that way also. Eat them with your favorite hamburger bun or make it a lettuce wrap. Be sure to make a few extra because they re-heat fabulous and they are great to have the next day. Ready for the recipe?!!

I’ve Been Clean Eating

mom-test-1-edited

 

Hi guys! I am really excited to share with you about a new cookbook that I bought this week. The link to purchase it will be at the bottom of this post.

I have followed this lovely lady (blogger Katie Farrell) for sometime now and tried a few recipes here and there. Lately, I am feeling the effects of getting close to 50 (mostly mental) and decided that I want to try this “clean eating” thing.

I have been making one of her dinner dishes for the last three nights and eating a big salad for lunch each day. Starting the day out with three eggs and my cup of coffee.

Now let me tell you that I have been having headaches for the last month everyday! Not fun at all. Trying not to take many meds for it because that’s not good for you. I realized last night after dinner that I have not had a headache for the last three days! Coincidence? I am thinking not.

I have not had any refined sugar (using organic coconut sugar) and I think this has made the BIG difference. My stomach doesn’t feel all bloated and the family is LOVING every meal. That is huge for me.

I will share some pictures with you from my kitchen. Seriously, easy! My goal is to make it seven days in a row and then go from there. I will let you know how it’s going.

Grandmom’s Shoofly Pie

Grandmom's Shoofly

You should have seen the look on Mr. D’s face when he walked in last night and saw this pie sitting on the counter. This is seriously his favorite dessert. He wants me to make this on his birthday, every holiday and at least once a month.

It is good straight out of the oven, after its been sitting at room temperature or cold in the refrigerator.

It is a special recipe perfected by his Grandmom years ago before she passed. I remember her and her son (my father-in-law) working in the kitchen for hours making pie after pie until she got it right.
