Made at home meat burgers

Yes, we made them from scratch. These lovely, yummy burgers! The sauces are completely optional – and so are the French fries! The best part, however, is the oil-free grilling on the plate and the brown bread! Even the cheese is ‘light’.  

Revival

I am now in the process of reviving this blog that I began three years ago but stopped somewhere this time in 2015. However, in addition to putting in an occasional recipe, I will also have pictures of food, mostly cooked at home, along with some reviews of restaurants we eat at.
