Spicy Hawaiian Burgers

Spicy Hawaiian Burgers

I’ve always wanted to try making chicken burgers using ground chicken. Finally, it went on sale at the grocery store and I just couldn’t resist. I love the combination of the sweetness of the pineapple with the spicy cheese and chili powder in the burger.

Roasted Beets

Super simple side dish that I love. I don’t eat beets quite as often as I would like because I hate having to boil them and I find it makes a mess. This roasting recipe however is a lot less messy, just as easy as baking a potato, and just as good as boiled (if not better).

Vietnamese Pickled Vegetables

Vietnamese Pickled Vegetables

I made these Vietnamese pickled vegetables to take to a family gathering and they were a great hit. Very easy to make but you might have trouble finding daikon (Chinese white radish) unless you go to a specialty store with more Asian products. Great as a snack on the side or as a topping on a sandwich (especially a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich, which I will have to try making soon!).

Cumin Grilled Chicken Breasts

Cumin Grilled Chicken Breasts

I got this recipe from the Food Network. I had some chicken breasts in my freezer that I wanted to use up in a new way and since it is summer, I looked for a simple grilled chicken recipe that didn’t require marinating (because I didn’t have the time) and this is what I found. Best part is the whole process of prep and cooking only takes about 25 minutes.
