Black Bean Jucy Lucy/Vegetarian Juicy Lucy Sandwich

As per wiki,"a Jucy Lucy or Juicy Lucy is a cheeseburger that has the cheese inside the meat patty in addition to on top. A piece of cheese is surrounded by raw meat and cooked until it melts, resulting in a molten core of cheese within the patty. This scalding hot cheese tends to gush out at the first bite, so servers frequently warn patrons to let the burger cool for a few minutes before consumption to avoid injury. In Lebanon, Roadster diner has also attempted its very own cheese-stuffed patty in which they call the "Cheese-At-Heart". Unlike the traditional Lucy, the patty is stuffed with Swiss cheese and topped with cheddar cheese, lettuce, and potato chips".

Akara - Nigerian Fried Bean Cake

Akara is the most popular Nigerian bean cake prepared with black eyed peas. This fried cake are quite famous among the Nigerians as they can be consumed for breakfast or snacks. This cakes are dangerously addictive and you cant just stop with one.If you make this crispy fritters you wont  just stop yourself having them. As i told earlier Akara is made with soaked and deskinned black eyed peas blended to a puree and fried in oil with chopped onions and peppers. Most of the akaras are prepared either by blending onions and peppers together with the deskinned peas or else both chopped onions and peppers are added later to the blended puree too. I tried the second way and they came out simply fabulous.

After rice, pastas have their important place in our daily menu. My kids devour pastas with anything, even just with ketchup. However i dont forget to make couple of sauces to enjoy with. From Marinara sauce to White sauce, sauce for pastas may goes for many different variations and for easy preparation. My today's recipe goes for an excellent, very creamy and garlic loaded sauce. This sauce need just garlic cloves, all purpose flour and fresh cream which is spiced simply with salt and pepper powder.This sauce goes awesome with pastas else you can make a garlic flavoured gratin with pastas as well. This cream sauce sounds almost like the white sauce but fresh cream is the key ingredient of this sauce.
