Stuffed Turkey Burger


This recipe is created at Hanna’s request. I was never a fan of turkey till Hanna told me that her favorite is turkey burger. I stuffed the burger with caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, and Swiss cheese. I’d say the end result is oozing with juiciness… I am starting to like turkey. Ingredients Caramelized Onions 3 large onions, thinly sliced (trust Read More

They are best eaten fresh and naked, but what else am Read More

The summer fruit bakes and desserts seem to strike a chord with my mother-in-law. These strawberry and blueberry muffins are no exception.
