The second book is set to be titled Burgers on a Weeknight and it will have 50+ burger creations with homemade sauces, and toppings. I am using a variety of meats in the mix as well. Which is my my Nashville Hot Chicken Burger is perfect for your family and the newest edition to my next cookbook!

If you don’t care for spicy food – don’t shy away from this burger. I do not like to make things that are spicy just to be spicy – you know those sauces and dishes that melt your face off. I like for the spiciness to be complementary and balanced, which is why I like to add cooling ingredients to cut the acidity and just give you that delicious flavor.

I served this up with an easy to make Bourbon Baked Beans – so much flavor without that tin can taste. They give a nice break from the heat of the burger too! It would be great with some Beer Battered Onion Rings or even just plain ol’ french fries!

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
