My version is a simple dash of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper atop the grass-fed beef patties on freshly-baked hamburger buns, adding on fried oysters, collard greens, and Sir Kensington’s Special Sauce to finish it off—no bayou dish left unturned.
The green veggies are in honour of Saint Patrick’s Day, and for my blended household–made up of an older son who is now a pescatarian, an elderly mom whose on a strict diet because of her arthritis, a teen who eats everything that’s in the fridge at midnight, a hubby who goes for walks around the neighborhood every hour, and me, who just wants to please everybody…

I remember the first time I dabbled with phyllo dough I had no idea what I was doing. My cousin gave me one of those mini pie makers for Christmas a couple of years back and I was eager to get started. So naturally at the market, I grabbed what I thought to be an ‘easy’ and fun way to try out my new pie maker– phyllo dough. Following the instructions on the box, as well as, the pie maker’s how-to, I was off to a good start!
Improvise, improvise, improvise…I’m big on this when it comes to recipes. Most times, whilst sitting in my little corner kitchen desk, I’ve already figured out what I am going to cook for tomorrow’s dinner whilst, in my head, prepping the ingredients for tonight’s family meal! There are thousands, upon thousands of recipes on-line where I gather my ideas from. Other times, I just turn around to grab one of my cookbooks. What I love to do, however, is improvise…and this is what I have done with this recipe.
So this is exactly the kind of recipe you can dive into for those lazy, yet impatient days you may be having…as well as, when everything you need is readily available in the kitchen.
Yesterday we had rain…finally. True, it’s not the most pleasant…but hey, free water is ALWAYS good. So it was a cozy kind of feeling for me, which personally meant, run to the grocery store to see what I can cook up for the day!
