Let’s Get Grilling

Summer foods are my favorite.  I love all of the fresh fruits and veggies, and I love grilling.

Just in time for Father’s Day, my blog friends and I have come up with some yummy… Read more »

Personally, I could live the rest of my life happily without PB, but Hubs and the kids are a different story.  It’s a staple for them, and boy are they picky.  I’ve tried all natural.

The Perfect Roasted Chicken

I have been wanting to make a roasted chicken for a long time, but for some reason I have always been very intimidated by the process.  Not really sure what it is.  Maybe it’s because of the threat of salmonella should I not cook the chicken completely.
