My husband and I are super blessed to have two little boys, ages four and one.
Cooper is the older one and boy, does he like to cook! Well...he is like his mama and he sure loves to EAT. :) So naturally, he was interested in what I was up to in the kitchen. He grew up with this food business we call Kate's Plate. I founded it when he was just 10 months old! He always watching recipe testing, going with me on a zillion trips to the grocery store, all the fun markets, doing food photography, and eating our creations. He's been through the trial phase, around the shop during build-out, and is pretty much considered our part-time employee. Sometimes, I can even get him to mop the floors (well, try to anyway - moms of four year olds, can I get an amen?!)

Fresh handmade black bean burgers are a far cry from the frozen pucks you get in the store. These are thick, juicy, and fresh. Spicy them up or down to your family's liking.
