Roasted Red Pepper, Vegetable & Bean Burgers

There are many perks to when Mother Cookie comes to visit, and one of them is having fresh inspiration. She provides me with all kinds of culinary ideas, whether she means to or not. Plus, she’s a great taste tester. She rambled about roasted red peppers the other day and how I should make something […]


Reader’s Choice Wednesday: Gluten-Free Black Bean & Edamame Veggie Burgers

A few days ago, on my Facebook page, I excitedly announced the introduction of Reader’s Choice Wednesdays where I let you guys suggest a recipe or ingredient to post this week. I got a ton of awesome suggestions, but I liked Peggy W.’s idea for a black bean veggie burger because it’s been a while […]


Green Monster Veggie Burgers + How-To Video

Cooking in a new kitchen is like shopping in an unfamiliar grocery store. You don’t know where anything is and you can’t find what you need, even though you know it’s there somewhere. I just got settled into my new apartment, so cooking has been quite the challenge. Every time I think I have everything […]

Spinach Artichoke Veggie Burgers

I don’t know why Spinach Artichoke Dip is so awesome, but it is. Spinach, cheese, and artichokes are all tasty components, but nothing blow-your-mind amazing. For some reason though, when you bring all that together and morph it into a hot and creamy dip, you get what can only be described as addictive molten bliss, […]

My Hearty Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers were born on a whim. One night, I was dying to cook something, but I didn’t know what. I scanned the contents of the fridge and peered into the pantry, but no little light bulb illuminated above my head. I knew I wanted something at least remotely good […]

Pizza Burger Pita

Pizza is my lifeline. I need it; I crave it. I inhale that sliced stuff at least once a week. I don’t know what is about pizza, but it calls to me. Pizza, I love you. …Except for when pizza “calls to me” on days when I’m eating healthy. Then we’re not friends, Pizza. You […]

Healthy Cookie: Kale, Feta, & Tomato Veggie Burger Wrap

I have a lot of resentment towards healthy foods, and towards my stubborn taste buds for not liking them. It’s a constant battle. Despite what you might assume from the decadent recipes that make up the majority of this site, I actually eat healthy foods most of the time. About 75% of my week is […]

Healthy Cookie: Kickin’ Veggie Burger Wrap

For most people, the word “burger” equates to a patty of sorts sandwiched between two halves of a bun, and often topped with condiments, cheese, and/or sliced vegetables. Burgers used to only mean meat, specifically hamburger meat. Nowadays, however, the world has become much more vegetarian friendly, and you can find burgers that are meat-free. […]
