Black Bean Burger – Skinnytaste

11181815_10152793767000759_1460618886155592203_nOne of my favorite gifts this past Christmas that I received was the Skinnytaste Cookbook. I have yet to make every recipe, but not one has dissapointed me yet. This recipe is so simple, and delicious, that I double it, and freeze them individually for later use. It’s been a life saver, to just grab this out of the freezer, and have dinner ready in 5 minutes (and it’s not processed #WIN).

 

Grab her cook book, and get this recipe! It is gold.

I even put it on top of a hard corn tortilla to make tostada’s for lunch.

PJ’s Pancake House

I have been going to this eatery for years, and they never disappoint. While I do love their potato pancakes served with sour cream AND applesauce, my favorite breakfast item they serve is the Eggs Benedict. If you’ve never had Eggs Benedict before, what are you waiting for! Go to PJ’s right now and order them. (yes they are open until midnight)

English Muffin
Canadian Bacon
Poached Egg
Hollandaise Sauce

I’m hungry just thinking about it!

They also serve them with this wonderful potato hash, which has green chilies in it.

Also pictured (something I recently tried and cannot believe I’ve lived 23 years without it) – Corned beef hash – TO. DIE. FOR.

GO TO PJ’S!
