Roasted Green Beans

Side dish recipes
























This is a perfect green bean recipe for all those vegetable lovers out there. Green beans go well as a side dish for many different main entrees and this recipe is a good replacement for those that enjoy french fries but would like a healthier option. Roasting the green beans in the oven for an extended period of time will give them a crunchy texture, it will almost be as if you are eating fries but I would think twice about adding any ketchup. The key of this recipe is that when you are roasting the green beans on a baking sheet make sure that you separate them individually so that they roast evenly, use a mixing bowl to season the beans with all the ingredients and mix them together with your hands. Make sure that you keep an eye on the green beans while roasting them in the oven and do not exceed the cooking time or the beans will shrivel up and not bearable to eat.

Spicy Baked Chicken Breast

Chicken Recipes























 
This has been a cold winter and my family always told me its best to keep your insides warm this way it will help with your outside and what is better to bring up your internal temperature up then some food with a little bit of spice. Chicken is a nutritious meal and baking it just right makes sure to leave the juices intact and makes every bite just a little bit more enjoyable. I love to mix and match seasonings looking for just the right mixture and with this seasoning combination I am sure that those that try this meal will be content with the results. You can always add any spices that your palate enjoys and the longer you can refrigerate the chicken the better but sometimes we do not always have the time to prepare our meals for an extended period and the shorter period works just fine. Make sure to use a baking sheet to cook your chicken breast and fresh parsley is always just a bit better then dried parsley but use what you have on hand.

Breakfast Island Eggs

Breakfast Recipes
























The holiday season is upon us and after many filling lunches and dinners with tonnes of leftovers to hold us over for days, it would be nice to have a tasty breakfast during the season especially if we had one too many cups of eggnog. This was something I came up with one morning while laying in bed wondering what would be on the menu for breakfast. This tasty dish is loaded with foods to get us fueled for the day and is filling in its own sense and does not require anything additional sides to accompany it. The key to this recipe is the base and you must use a Bavarin style bread, Rudolph's is my go to multi grain bread as the size of the loaf is perfect for this meal as well as light breakfasts. Shredded mozzarella gives it a mild taste but if you prefer something more sharp or intense flavour you can go with strong cheddar or gorgonzola. A natural butter spread is preferred over margarine and make sure to use a large skillet. Top with sunny side eggs to give it that island look.

Garlic Roasted Potatoes and Carrots

Potato Recipes
























The holiday season is upon us and it is time to get that kitchen going as guests visit and pot lucks begin with family and friends. You can not go wrong with a great side dish, as many of us try to think what type of a main entree we would like to cook up we tend to not focus as much on what would go with that meal. My family always told me that a great entree needs the same quality of side dish to accompany it and make every bite enjoyable. This side dish is all vegetable and I like to stick to two of my favourites which are potatoes and carrots but you can also add some of your favs to the dish which can include zucchini, sweet peppers, celery or asparagus. The baking dish should be at minimum 9 x 13 but larger is fine to and when mixing all the ingredients do not be afraid to mix everything up with your hands so that you every vegetable is being seasoned properly. Cheese lovers can also sprinkle some parmesan on top or serve with some chopped fresh rosemary.

Chipotle Mini Sliders

Slider Recipes
Mini Sliders a popular appetizer or for some a main course meal when they are out at many pub style restaurants. I decided to give this tasty treat a try at home and found that I created a very similiar style meal just like you would enjoy at your local local pubs and the best part is you can create as many as you like in the comfort of your own kitchen. Eggs are a key ingredient to create the sliders from scratch as this is the best binding agent and helps to keep the ground beef from falling apart. I would recommend that you use a lean ground beef and for some of the more self conscious meat eaters you can even try lean ground turkey or chicken. You can pick up medium (mini) buns at your local grocers and when you are making the patty you want to  get them to around the size of the palm of your hand. The cheese used should be natural cheese slices and you would cut them into four even parts to place on the burger patty. Chipotle sauce is a must have topping.

Avocado Summer Sandwich

Sandwich Recipes





















The summer is finally here and after a long winter, I like to make sure to enjoy the extra day light and sunshine and one thing this tends to cut into is my cooking times. I find that I am just not home long enough to get into some intense meals so my summer months in the kitchen tend to turn into what can I make quickly so that I can get out and enjoy a walk or a run. I tend to make a lot of sandwiches for dinner and figured, why not make those sandwiches healthy to go with my healthy activities. This recipe is quick and easy and more importantly tasty and full of nutrition. What you want to use for bread is a whole grain or multi grain, your choice of any type of tomato or cucumber but make the cuts of the thin variety, tear up your lettuce and spread the avocado mixture on both sides of the bread. The seasoning of the avocado is key, so make sure to use a quality balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Finish it off what a little bit of sriracha sauce for those looking for a little kick in their meal.
