Simple and quick fix to spice up the morning’s boring bagel and cream cheese, is only two added ingredients. A bit of Cajun spice added to the whipped cream cheese, layered in a few tomatoes from the garden, and transformation in to a flavorful breakfast treat. It all can be prepared in the time it takes the toaster to do its thing.

Bagel spread

Yes it is baked but tastes like it was fried!

Here’s another simple recipe that you can do using a few common ingredients. We started with some thawed out chicken thighs but I”m sure you can use whichever you prefer. After mixing some mayo with garlic, fresh basil, salt and pepper, it was combined with the chicken in a bag in order to evenly coat all the pieces.

Then they are coated in a mixture of Panko breadcrumbs, Italian breadcrumbs, and Parmesan.  The Parmesan adds a nice crustiness to it while the others have a great flavoir together.  Placed on a cookie sheet, baked at 400 until golden brown and it’s ready to go.



Combined with sides of creamed spinach, mac and cheese, and tortellini this fresh salmon was well complimented.  The ingredients of horseradish mustard, garlic, and brown sugar were stirred together and spread on top of the salmon fillets.  We then baked them until done and served it up.
