vegan stuffed shells I swear, no one will know this is vegan. Ok, that was a big statement, let me start over. I’m really pretty sure that this one will win over your pickiest eaters. Easy Chicken Burritos Chicken Burritos I made a roasted chicken over the weekend, and after enjoying it on the first day, I’ve been trying to come up with a more innovative recipe than just a simple sandwich. When I spotted some leftover tortillas in the fridge, I instantly thought of finally making my own homemade burritos. One of my embarrassing, guilty pleasures are those cheap, frozen burritos. I don’t know what it is about them, besides the fact they are loaded with fat, but I have loved them for years.

How to Make The Perfect Grilled Cheese Sandwich As many of you may know, I am completely obsessed with grilled cheese sandwiches! They are so simple and yet so irresistibly good! Over the years I have made countless grilled cheese sandwiches and more recently I have been experimenting with them and sharing my adventures with you. I recently realized that although I have posted a lot of grilled cheese sandwich recipes, I have not written about the basic grilled cheese sandwich or gone into much detail about how to make a grilled cheese sandwich. Since I have picked up a few tricks along the way, I thought that it was about time that I shared them with you. At its base a grilled cheese sandwich is pretty simple consisting of bread, butter and cheese.

We Like It Raw - Raw Food Goodness: Raw Food Recipes These recipes have made it to the top of our list. All we can say is yummm! View all Raw Food Recipes Salsa Finta & Almond Polpetta This raw fiesta finds inspiration from Russell James, raw chef based in the UK. Grilled Zucchini with Herb Marinade Recipe (The Kids Cook Monday) Grilled vegetables have become a favorite at our home, partly because of the flavor and partly because they are often easy to prepare. Our boys help with slicing the vegetables and mixing the marinades, and Michael or I take over at the grill. I’ve tried several different knives with the boys, and our favorite is the Victorinox Wavy Edge Round Tip Steak Knife. The handle is small enough for beginners to hold easily, and the wavy/serrated edge slices neatly through pretty much anything. The rounded tip provides a measure of safety similar to blunt tip scissors, but remember it is a sharp knife, so be sure to teach knife safety and remind your young chefs to keep their fingers back. (See how Hockey Guy needed another reminder in the photo below!)

Reuben Sandwich My absolute favourite thing to do with corned beef leftovers has to be making reuben sandwiches . There is just something magical about the combination of tender corned beef, tangy sauerkraut, creamy Russian dressing and Swiss cheese wrapped in rye! I like to grill my reuben sandwiches to melt the cheese and give the rye a nice and crispy texture a warm buttery flavour. Reuben sandwiches are pretty easy to make though there is one tricky part and that is dealing with all of the liquid in the sandwich from the juicy corned beef, the sauerkraut and the Russian dressing. No one likes a soggy sandwich and luckily there are some easy ways to deal with the problem. First you want to really squeeze the excess liquid from the sauerkraut and if it still has a lot of moisture you can saute it in a pan to get rid of even more of it.

Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry Of all the Americanized Chinese stir fries, beef and broccoli has to be one of the most popular. It’s so simple, and so good. This recipe is an adaptation of my mom’s very Americanized version of the classic stir fry. Her secret ingredient to an irresistible beef and broccoli stir fry is cheddar cheese.
