These Are The Days

These are the days that we will tell our kids about, the days we will all too soon refer to as “the good ol’ days”. The days where we will say remember when we would sit outside and have dinner and just talk about our day as fresh cut grass wafts through the air.

There are many reasons I love to cook. Am I great at it? Probably not. Do I know what I’m doing? Only sometimes. But my main reason stems from something much deeper. Food is what you gather around as a family, as friends, as acquaintances that will end up friends before the nights end. Food is what unites us. Therefore, that’s why I love to make it and entertain a crowd.  


Sometimes I love a challenge when it comes to recipes but the only challenge with this one was my baby who wanted held the whole time I was cooking. I thought it would be great to share my delicious chicken recipe with you. It’s healthy and easy. 


Lemon Chicken with Herbs

1 whole chicken

1 tsp fresh thyme

1 tsp fresh rosemary 

2 lemons (zest from one)  

3 tbsp butter

1 tbsp minced garlic

1 small red onion


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  

Mix together the thyme, rosemary, garlic, zest and butter with a little salt. 

Put chicken in a roasting pan, cut up one lemon and stuff it in the cavity along with a couple onion wedges and a little bit of thyme and rosemary.

Brush the chicken with your butter mix, squeeze the other lemon over the chicken. Then just bake for an hour.
