Citrus Herb Roasted Chicken and Blogging...

My morning usually begins with reading my favorite blogs and today was no exception, except I felt a little discouragement from one. The question she asked, "are you reading blogs less?". I'm still new to the blogging world and I love it, I love to share stories, pictures, recipes, DIY, I love it all. I wish I had more time to write posts, but unfortunately I do not. Everything I've done has been a learning process, from taking an OK picture to writing. I'm not the best but hope to one day be a blogger that is followed, I love sharing with you. To the people that follow me, THANK YOU! I hope that you enjoy what I have to say and are making a good meal or a fun DIY. So I will keep on keeping on, BOOM!

Now onto some good food...

Orange, lemon, garlic, thyme, rosemary, and olive oil; whats not to love? I first came across this recipe on Pinterest, via HERE. I've made it a few times and always go back to it, Liam loves it so much. I love the crispy skin and bright rich flavors. Its a go to recipe and could easily be used for entertaining, freezes well if you have leftovers, and is put together in a snap!

Its best to let this marinate overnight, in a gallon size Ziploc bag. All the flavors really develop over a long period of time. 

Tonight I served mashed potatoes, with full fat of course and crispy green beans. 

Any thoughts on the blogging world?
