Veggie Burger with Muhammara

I am still trying to beef up bulk up the vegetarian section of my recipes page, so I have been trying out different vegetarian recipes for you guys. Some have failed miserably and some have just been mediocre. Then I went to a lunch time cooking class at Whole Foods and had these veggie burgers. […]

Open-Faced Sandwiches with Ricotta, Arugula, and Fried Egg

Here’s a little secret. Sandwiches are hard for me to be inventive with. I get stuck in the meat, cheese, mustard bubble and then have a hard time branching out, which is why is usually find myself thinking that I don’t like sandwiches.
