How to make butter bean burgers

Butter bean burgers are good vegetarian and healthy alternatives to hamburgers. They can be eaten for lunch as well as dinner, and can also be served to guests during parties if they do not mind eating something entirely vegetarian for the evening. The ingredients which you require to make the burgers are as follows: four burger buns, butter beans, breadcrumbs, one egg, one potato, olive oil, chili powder, cilantro leaves, lettuce leaves, two red onions, two tomatoes, mayonnaise and five spring onions.

Firstly, boil the butter beans in a pot of hot water; when the beans have grown soft, drain the water and transfer the beans to a food processor and mash them. Secondly, dice the spring onions and cilantro leaves, and mix them in with the mashed butter beans, egg, potato, breadcrumbs and 3 tsp. chili powder. Thirdly, make four round patties out of the mix.

Following that, heat some olive oil in a pan and place the patties in the pan to fry them until they have turned golden in color. Whilst the patties are frying, spread mayonnaise over the bottom of each burger bun. Finally, slice the tomatoes and red onions in circular shapes and place them inside the burger buns along with lettuce leaves. Also place the patties inside the burger buns; the patties must be sandwiched between the tomato and onion slices, and the lettuce leaves. Serve the dish hot.

The Home Office

How to decorate your home office

In my outlook, the perfect home office is one which has a big desk and a comfortable-enough chair. A large desk is really useful if or whenever the nature of your work is such that you must reference many books or other similar materials to get it done – this is because there is enough room on the desk to spread items all over. Also, when you have to spend many hours working, a comfortable chair will ensure that the experience does not become an extremely tiring one.

Vanilla Cupcakes

How to make vanilla cupcakes topped with colorful icing

Cupcakes topped with colorful icing are great options to eat as desserts daily because they are rather simple to bake. The ingredients which you will need are butter, sugar, icing sugar, milk, four eggs, vanilla extract (for example: McCormick All Natural Pure Vanilla Extract), food coloring (for example: Chefmaster Neon Food Coloring) and flour.

Firstly, take the butter out of the refrigerator and leave it in the kitchen for one hour to soften it. Secondly, take a cupcake tray and fill them with paper baking cups; then take a bowl and mix the softened butter well with the eggs, sugar, flour and 2tsp of the vanilla extract. Thirdly, fill the baking cups with the mix and place the tray inside the oven. Bake until the cupcakes have turned a little golden brown in color; also, insert a fork into the cupcakes to check if they have baked – if the cupcakes have hardened then they are done.

After that, prepare the icing for the cupcakes: mix the remaining of the softened butter well with icing sugar, food coloring, 4tsp milk and 2tsp vanilla extract. Then use a pipe bag (for example: Wilton Professional Decorating Bag) to decorate the cupcakes in a colorful swirling fashion. Refrigerate the cupcakes and serve the desserts cold.

Five great summer date ideas

Going on a date in the summer means making the most of the unrelenting heat. It also means creating romantic memories which will last a lifetime and experiences which you will want to repeat next summer.

Eat ice cream together
Go to an ice cream shop over the weekend to have a romantic experience; just order your favorite flavor of ice cream, like tutti frutti and catch up with each other about how both of your weeks been.

Go on a picnic
For a picnic for two, prepare a small picnic bag with the essentials – a few sandwiches, paper plates and books to read together and just head to a nearby park to have a very relaxing date.

Go shopping together at the farmers’ market
The farmers’ market should be filled with fresh summer produce, such as apricots, blackberries and mangoes. Go out on a shopping date to the market and share with each other how much you know about these fruits and what to do with them once you get back home.

Have a barbecue
Talk to your significant other about hosting a barbecue and then invite your friends over to it. Cook some summer recipes, like grilled vegetables together, and just chat with your friends about your future plans together as a couple.

Go to a botanical garden
If you both have a mutual interest in plants, then going on a date to the botanical garden is a great idea because the place is filled with flowers, plants and trees which are in full bloom during the summer; the date will both offer the opportunity to explore and enjoy these various types of plant life together.
