This post will be a bit longer as I not only am going to tell you about last night's side dish but I also would like to share with you some great news about a new contact that I received yesterday.

Green beans are one of my favorite vegetables. Although I don't know why maybe it's because they are my favorite color green lol. But, I do admit that I do not prefer eating tasteless green beans. I mean come on who does, right? Ha, well this Sweet Balsamic Green recipe is anything but bland. No seriously this dish tastes AMAZING!!! And here's how? 

The honey combines incredibly well with the balsamic vinegar and garlic. Delicious. This is a recipe you have to try. I know you will make it over and over again.

Sweet Balsamic Green Beans

16 oz green beans fresh, trimmed, cut
2 C. water 
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar -
1 Tbsp honey -
1 Tbsp onion powder -
1 Tbsp garlic minced
3 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt -
1/2 tsp. pepper -


In a medium pot boil water and cook beans until they are tender three-five minutes. In the meantime, in a large pot, warm the olive oil over medium heat. Remove the beans from the heat and drain. Next, combine the garlic and green beans to the large saucepan with the oil in it. Cover, and cook for three minutes stirring occasionally. Remove cover and add in vinegar, honey, onion powder, salt, and pepper on medium-low heat. Stir regularly for about five more minutes. Serve immediately.
