Casablanca Burgers

Such a great name for these unique and delicious burgers. My friend B (Brooke) invited me over to try out a new Moroccan patty! It's quite an easy recipe, and in honor of The Pioneer Woman, I tried to take (not-so-great) pictures with my (not-so-great) camera for your viewing. I mean who has time to worry about the lighting, aperture and shutter speed when you're drooling! 
Meet B.-- Grill-Myster extraordinaire.
Meet the leading man--Ground Chuck--
any version you like will do.

Spices that will soon be introduced to Chuck...
And they instantly fall in love!

It's like they've always known each other.

Don't be fooled-- its not just ketchup,
and its essential to the meal.

We must get our veggies kids--
choose anything you want to grill.

Squash and mushrooms another beautiful pairing.

I've never seen anyone so excited to stand over the scorching grill before!
She does look like a natural though.

The secret ingredient in the burgers.
Don't bash it until you've tried it!

Gotta end on a sweet note, but I don't have the recipe
for this amazing Banana Fudge Cake.
Let's just say I'm still drooling...

Here's the recipe--Enjoy!
