The Frugal Kitchen: Mushroom Burger

This is such an easy recipe that I am almost ashamed to talk about it, but it is something that my vegetarian husband enjoys while my daughter and I eat beef burgers.

Take one large portobello mushroom and coat it with olive oil, then McCormick Montreal Steak seasoning.  Brown both sides in an oven safe fry pan, then place in a 350 Fahrenheit oven for 10 minutes.

Place on a bun and add the condiments of your choice.

Enjoy and God bless,

Good Reads: The Murderer's Daughter

The Murderer's DaughterThe Murderer's Daughter by Jonathan Kellerman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Murderer's Daughter is an extremely well written and professionally edited murder mystery/suspense novel.

Grace grew up in the foster system after witnessing the gruesome murder/suicide of her dysfunctional parents. Thanks to a supportive foster couple she ends up with an excellent education and a career as a psychologist treating patients that have experienced or witnessed trauma. Her very controlled life is thrown out of order when a prospective patient is murdered and the murderer is now intent on eliminating her.

This was a fast paced book with interesting, well developed characters. The chapters alternate between Grace's childhood experiences and her current dilemma.

Grace is the type of character that I thoroughly enjoy. She is realistic, strong and determined. While she has some quirks, understandable with her background, they only make her more interesting.

Warning: this book does include sexual content and violence.

I highly recommend The Murderer's Daughter. I'm not sure if it will be part of a series, but it reads as a standalone with a HFN ending.
