- WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Best Homemade Burger Yet
I had not tried telera buns before. But not being able to find a small bag of sourdough, I opted to try these. I understand that telera is a variation of bolillo bread, which is quite common in this region. You find it at the grocery store in these large plastic bins.
I never buy bolillo. I always wonder how fresh they can possibly be when they are stacked mounds upon mounds without an air seal. I'll have to try them one time so that I may provide an honest review. As for the telera, I cannot recall having seen this bread in the grocery store. Granted, I rarely purchase bread anymore, and when I did, I always (always) went for either Milton's or sourdough.
But these beautiful rounds with melted cheese on top -- couldn't pass them buy.
I began with the meat, seasoning the ground beef with onion powder, garlic salt, cayenne, mustard seed, ginger powder and ground pepper. I then let the meat sit in the fridge while I chopped up the tomatoes, lettuce and onion.
I sauteed the onions and cooked an egg. I also sliced up an avocado.
Once the hamburger patties were cooked through, I went for the assembly. Having toasted the buns, I smeared them with a sampling of buttermilk ranch dressing and ketchup.
Paired with some roasted sweet peppers and there you have it. There wasn't a need to have another meal for the rest of the day.
