Roast Chicken Recipe

Roast Chicken, a classic Sunday meal delivery with leftover dishes for the rest of the week.  The recipe is simple, the meat tender and juicy, generously seasoned with salt, pepper, and herbs. The best roast chicken recipe has a golden crispy skin on the outside with juicy, tender meat on the inside.  Elegant enough when you need an impressive crowd pleaser or a humble meal for family and friends.   There are a few simple tips to achieve such a goal, from pat drying the whole chicken to adding mouthwatering seasonings.

Perfectly Cooked Eye Of Round Roast

Perfectly Cooked Eye of Round Roast, tender round roast generously sprinkled with a mixture of salt and pepper, forming a crust to hold in all the juices.  The roast is the star of the recipe, so no other ingredients are necessary to create the most succulent meat. Eye of round roast is a lean, inexpensive cut that comes from the hip and hind legs.  Often sold as a roast, steaks for marinating, and referred to the round when buying ground round hamburger.   I definitely recommend using a meat thermometer to ensure not overcooking the eye of round roast.  Overcooking the roast past medium-well will result in the meat being tough.

Canadian Bacon & Gruyere Egg Cups

Canadian Bacon & Gruyere Egg Cups, three ingredients come together to make a simple but fancy breakfast recipe to serve for special occasions or weekend brunch. These Canadian Bacon & Gruyere Egg Cups are great if you are on a low carb, keto, or gluten free eating plan.  The Canadian bacon is lower in calories than bacon making them weight watcher friendly too.   The Canadian bacon is crispy around the egg whites with the egg yokes runny, making them inviting to dip with toast strips.  

Hatch Chili Pepper Cornbread

Hatch Pepper Cornbread ,  spicy, robust flavor from hatch chili peppers in classic cornbread gives a smooth heat rather than a kick.  The difference in the taste profile is due to the soil and climate in which the chili peppers are grown. Every year I look forward to Hatch Chili Pepper season.  It comes around the first of August and lasts until the end of September, depending on the weather the season can run shorter or longer. All the buzz about the Hatch Chili Pepper comes from its distinct flavor, smoky, sweet, yet still packed with some heat without being too spicy, as does the jalapeno pepper. Right now, my local grocery stores are showcasing all the ways to enjoy the Hatch Chili Peppers, from using them in salsa to adding them to ice cream.

Old Fashioned Doughnuts

Old Fashioned Doughnuts , just like Grandma used to make, easy and straightforward.  The dough is very forgiving and easy to work with.  One of the ingredients will surprise you, yielding a texture nothing short of perfection. Have you ever wanted to make old fashioned doughnut from scratch that does not take all day in the kitchen to make?   That's me...I like to get up early on a Saturday morning and whip up a batch of cake doughnuts just like the bakery down the street before everyone gets up.    I learned from Ashely Strickland Freeman the author of The Duke's Real Mayonnaise Cookbook that she loves to make homemade doughnuts on a Saturday morning also.
