Lemon Pepper Chicken

It feels good to be back…to blogging, back in my own kitchen, and back to life in Austin (minus this ridiculous heat). Over the past month I have been in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on our yearly summer vacation.

I got a sudden craving for it last night (this happens often), so thankfully I had all the ingredients on hand and whipped this sucker up within 20 minutes. You can’t be that. [Read more...]
