I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Lemon Garlic Chicken

Just a juicy lemony bird...

3 1/2 lb chicken
2 lemons
4 garlic cloves, crushed
lemon pepper
zest of 1 lemon

Slice 1 lemon, crush the garlic and place in the cavity of the chicken. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon into the cavity as well and the juice of another half over the chicken. Sprinkle with lemon pepper, thyme and lemon zest.

Preheat oven to 425 F  then reduce heat to 350 F and roast the chicken for 1  1/2 hours.

Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest 15 minutes before carving so that it retains all it's juiciness!
