KCL Friday Finds

Welcome to another Friday Finds! And happy Fall!! This Saturday marks the Autumn Equinox, and the first official day of Fall. Though the temps might still be quite high in some places, we can officially celebrate all things pumpkin spice. From home decor and body care products to fall beauty and fashion, you can find several ways to get started on seasonal shopping this weekend. Enjoy!

One of my favorite things to switch up with each new season is my makeup. This Fall I find myself really attracted to a mix of traditional warm tones and shimmery jewel tones as well. At Lip Love, there is no shortage of either in their beautiful new Fall collection! From their "Sierra" shade - a warm red lip gloss with gold and brown tones, to "Reign" - a stunning deep purple lip gloss with berry hues, the collection has every shade you need for the upcoming holiday season. If you can't make up your mind (who could blame you), you can purchase a lip duo like this Bronze Beauty …

Black Bean Veggie Burgers


Black bean burgers are such a healthy option to traditional hamburgers. They're extremely low fat, low-calorie; yet black beans are high in fiber, protein, and iron, and also have a good amount of Potassium, Magnesium, Calcium, and Vitamin B-6. There are so many health benefits to black beans.

Mine black bean veggie burger uses a basic recipe. I don't like my black bean burgers full of veggies, but you can certainly add corn or diced onion and peppers. Try other spicy flavors like hot sauce or teriyaki sauce. I LOVE to put the Worcestershire sauce and seasoned salt in, because it really gives the black bean burger a traditional burger taste, if you're used to those flavors in your beef burgers that is.

INGREDIENTS
  • 16oz canned and drained black beans or pre-soaked and cooked dry black beans
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbs ground cumin (optional)
  • 2 tbs Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Prepare beans according to directions on bag. Let cool and use a potato masher or food processor to lightly mash the beans. You don't want them completely pureed. Leave some chunks.
  2. Add everything other than the eggs, so you can adjust the spices to taste. The eggs and bread crumbs help with texture and help the patties stay together, though you can get away without them if you prefer, especially if you bake them. If you want to bake them, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. Add the eggs last then form into patties. If you have time, freeze them before cooking to help them keep their shape better.
  4. Form into patties and either bake for about 20 minutes or fry in a pan over medium heat over cooking oil for about 8-10 minutes per side.

  1. I'd have to pass on this, admittedly. The taste of any kind of bean tends to be very unappealing to me personally...

    1. I used to hate beans, then it was one of those flavors I suddenly started to like. I'm surprised my kids love them.

  2. This sounds good! I don't eat much meat anymore, and black beans are my favorite beans!
