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
garlic powder

Nashville in a Nutshell

Hello folks!

Skip and her companion recently jetted off to the wonderful land of Nashville, TN for a quick trip with our friends, Mr. & Mrs. Z. Here are some highlights, tid bits and recommendations.

Places to stay: We shacked up at the Hutton Hotel on West End Ave, not far from Vanderbuilt University, but also pretty close to Downtown Nashville. The Hutton is a boutique hotel and is very chic. We found it classy, comfortable and clean-- all very important. They have Nespresso machines on each floor, so you can get your caffeine fix, but you have to leave your room. However, there is a small coffee maker in the room as well with a decent coffee and tea selection. The highlight for Skip's companion was that there were speakers in the bathroom that allowed you to hear what was playing on the tv. The shower was amazing. Skip is not a fan of rain shower heads, but this one was fantastic and you could set the temperature and turn the shower on and off from a panel directly outside o…
