Remember my review I did?

I went through this book from front to back and dog-eared many pages. I ended up going with a recipe that I just knew my family would love.
Underneath that beautiful bird is potatoes, leeks and carrots. Boy, was it ever juicy and delicious! I make a lot of chicken around here, especially roasted in the oven, and this is now my favorite way to do it. It is easy to do, takes one pot to cook it all in, and tastes amazing! 
Now I can't wait to get to some more of these pages, and see how great other dishes are. I love this book like I love my meat! Plentiful!

5/5

    1. No, in a casserole pan. One that can be used on the stove and in the oven.

  2. My father was a butcher so I grew up with meat of all kinds being the main thing for dinner. I would love to check this cookbook out and learn some new ways to cook the different cuts.

  3. Hadn't thought of that, but the placing the chicken over the veggies is definitely a great way for the juices to flavor the veggies. I'm going to try it. What spices did you use for the chicken - looks yummy.

    1. Salt, pepper, a sprig of thyme and a bay leaf. Butter the whole outside of the chicken.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.
