4 Simple Recipes For Christmas

Are you tired of reading cookbooks that use too many ingredients and too many instructions? Do you believe that cooking should be as simple as possible? Well, this is the myTake for you! I have constructed 4 Simple Recipes that you can make for Christmas!

The recipes are designed with some built-in flexibility, because I personally hate recipes that call for specific ingredients and do not mention anything about generic replacements.

1. Whole Baked Chicken


- whole chicken, store-bought

- assorted spices (optional)

- stuffing (optional)


Unpack the chicken. Remove the chicken giblets from the body cavity. Rub spices all over the chicken's body and on the giblets. Stuff the chicken's cavity with whatever you want. You may put shitake mushrooms, rice noodles, bread crumbs, whole apple, whatever you want. Put the chicken on a baking pan. Insert the chicken into the conventional oven. Heat the oven on 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. While the chicken is baking, sauté the chicken giblets in a skillet. Add whatever spices you want. Set the giblets on a plate. When the chicken is done, wait to cool and get it out.

2. Fish Fillet Burgers


- any kind of fish fillet, store-bought

- assorted spices (optional)

- bread slices

- spinach leaves (recommended)

- tomatoes (recommended)

- onions (recommended)


Unpack the fish fillets. Assemble the fish fillets on a glass baking pan. If you want seasoning, then add it. Bake in the oven on 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. When the fish fillets are done, wait to cool and get them out. Make a sandwich by layering the fillets and vegetables between two bread slices.

3. Baked Potato Chunks


- potatoes (red, golden, brown, purple, any kind)

- spices

- some kind of plant oil (vegetable, corn, canola, peanut, coconut, avocado, etc.)


Clean the potatoes. Peel the potatoes, so that each potato is skinless. Slice the potatoes into bite-sized chunks. Coat the potatoes with the plant oil and spices in a bowl. Distribute the potato chunks on a baking pan evenly. Bake in the conventional oven on 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the insides are tender. Wait to cool and get them out.

4. Baked Kale Chips


- kale


Wash kale leaves in the sink. Assemble kale leaves on a baking pan, and spread out evenly. Cook in oven on 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until the leaves are crisp.

  • Great take!
    I often make 'baked potato chunks'. My daughter loves them.
    I leave the skins on (healthiest part), bake for a while then switch to broiler to get a chrispy effect on some of them. Serve with bacon bits and sour cream or gravey. Mmmmm!
    Sometimes I put the roast chicken on top of the potato bits and bake it all together. Drizzled with a little bit olive oil and spice, a little while before it's done I throw in some vegetables into the pan and basically you have a whole meal and one pan -easiest thing to make.

    Keep giving us good ideas!!

    • *whole meal in one pan.

    • If you live the skins on, then I think it is preferable to buy any kind of potato other than the Russet potato or buy organic potatoes. All I am concerned about is the pesticide use on the potatoes. May be best to use organic then.
