Bobby's Burger Palace- Eatontown, NJ

Bobby's Burger Palace is a fun place for a quick bite. Being a lover of all things on the Food Network and Cooking Channel, I've been obsessed with Bobby Flay for years. So, since he has several burger joints here in NJ, I thought it was about time to visit one. My companion and I trekked out to the Monmouth Mall and entered the unassuming Bobby's Burger Palace, which I think is a hip, modern twist on fast food, I've seen other bloggers and reviewers that have thought this wasn't successfully pulled off, I think they are just angry people. The colors are inviting and the seating is unique.

Some people don't like that you order at the counter and then find a seat and wait, I found that fun. Some called it "cafeteria style" but I would disagree with that because you aren't given a tray, your food is still delivered to you at your seat, you just have to order at the counter. Anyway, on to the food.

We were intrigued by the "Burger of the Month" entitled, the Brunch Burger featuring an egg, bacon and cheese, but passed on it because we've had similar burgers before. I went with the Napa Valley Burger which had watercress, goat cheese and meyer lemon honey mustard. It was awesome, the goat cheese was super soft and flavorful and the lemon honey mustard was subtle and added just the right tang to the burger. My companion went with the Philadelphia Burger which had provolone, onions and peppers. He loved it, it had all those classic cheesesteak toppings, the onions and peppers were grilled to yummy goodness. The burgers where really great, we ordered them medium and they were just that, slightly pink, really juicy and just delicious. The bun is just a little unassuming sesame seed bun, nothing fancy, which is good because you can really enjoy the burger and the toppings without it being overshadowed by some crazy bun.

Now, we did not have just burgers alone! We also shared an order of sweet potato fries! OH YUM! They were great and so was the horseradish dipping sauce was amazing. The fries were nice and crispy with a soft, sweet center. Who doesn't love that salty and sweet contrast? We did not have a milkshake (boo) but I hear they are pretty good. Maybe next time.

All in all, I'd say for a quick, inexpensive bite, Bobby's Burger Palace is a good call.

Check them out in Eatontown, Paramus, or now Cherry Hill, they also have locations in PA, NY and DC.

"Paleo Burritos" AKA stuffed collard greens

I recently discovered another use for collard leaves, a replacement for our old friend known as tortillas or wraps. After removing the stems and taking a quick 3 to 5 minute bath in boiling water they are ready to go. They are more durable than lettuce and fold over a little easier after being boiled. I have used them to make a variety of lunchmeat and grilled chicken wraps recently and then I got to thinking, couldn't I make a burrito out of them? Once I assembled them, it reminded me more of stuffed cabbage than burritos, call it whatever you want, they were still yummy. So, I'll share the recipe with you.

This recipe should be considered a guide and you can change and swap any way you wish.

Approximately 4 collard leaves
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 yellow onion sliced thin
1 green bell pepper sliced thin
1 4 oz can green chiles
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
the following spices can be added to your taste (I don't measure)
chilli powder
cumin
garlic powder
salt
pepper
cayenne…

EAT MORE KALE

A while ago, I learned of a guy making t-shirts and stickers with the phrase Eat More Kale on them and I was like "wow, I love kale, I need those!". And upon going through the process of finding Robert Muller Moore's website www.eatmorekale.com I found out more about him and learned some shocking stuff that he is going through.

If you live in an area where the fast food chain, Chik-Fil-A exists you may be familiar with their slogan and signs (including a cow) that read, "Eat Mor Chikin". So, they have been fighting to keep Robert from using the phrase Eat More Kale as they believe it is too similar to their slogan.

I support the Eat More Kale website, I'm a fan on facebook and I try to follow the story as best I can. Recently, I saw another blogger share a post about this struggle, including the Letter of Protest (see end of this post for reference) that Chik-Fil-A submitted, as I began to read it, I became very annoyed. Chik-Fil-A claims that because they …
