Happy Summer!!!

HAPPY SUMMER EVERYONE!!!! So I know it has been FAR too long! Let's just say that a little thing called college took over my life. For some reason this past semester was a killer but I made it! Thanks for sticking with me even though it has been months since I have posted but I still have been cooking. In fact, the other week I wanted to make from scratch one of my favorite burgers. It is called the Texan burger and it is from one of my favorite restaurants and just happens to be the place I work, Pappas Burgers. Now this burger is off the menu but I was introduced to it during my training. Let's just say I met my match! So I made my patties, guacamole, homemade onion strings (to die for), pepper jack cheese, maple bacon and lettuce. Oh and did I mention I stuffed the patties with pepper jack cheese too?! These burgers were to die for. So while I did not take step by step pictures I do have one of the final product.....If you want to know more about how to make this burger please leave a comment and I would be glad to answer :) Also I will attach the recipe for the onion strings. Until next time eat up from the Splendid Kitchen!

Oh did I forget to mention that I have a dessert for you?? Well I was at the beach with my church, Second Baptist, this past week as a leader. There were 2,000 high school students and God did incredible things. I had 6 sweet girls in my condo and one day we were making cookies. As we were making them I noticed the Oreos out of the corner of my eye. Then it hit me...I have wanted to make chocolate chip cookies stuffed with Oreos for so long! What a perfect opportunity! So we went for it and all I have to say is WOW....Here is a pic for you to salivate over. Ok for real, until next time, satisfy your sweet tooth from the Splendid Kitchen enjoy!
