Homemade Baked Chicken 

Sunday dinner at my house are dishes that can easily be made versatile for the picky eater which is me at the moment. I just like to sound like this housewife that enjoys cooking for her family. There are many ways to use baked chicken and I hope you can get some ideas to make dinner fun at your house.

I’m baking Chicken Leg Quarters for the recipes I’ll be cooking. I’m not someone who goes into the history of a chicken because I’ll get all freaked out and turn vegan I have never thought of protesting against animal brutality ok that’s another post. Thank you for coming to see what I made for dinner.

Before I put the chicken in the oven

This is where I checked on the chicken to see how it was cooking it still needed to cook for another 20 mins and then I let it sit in the oven afterward to keep the heat in the pan.

So I cleaned the meat and then poured vinegar over it to give it that final cleanse, I got that from the Jamaicans when they cook Jerk Chicken. I let the chicken marinate for about a half hour nothing too drastic or overnight.

I seasoned the chicken with:
Goya Adobo all purpose seasoning with pepper and con pimienta
Sazón Goya (orange packet)
Fajita seasoning
Basil

Have Taco Tuesday At Home 

It’s Taco Tuesday in my house yes my house I don’t have to go too far to enjoy Taco Tuesday and you don’t neither unless you like the atmosphere of loud music and drinks that’s something I can also do right from home except I’m not a heavy drinker a little wine here and there.

I put this post together to show you how creative you can get by inviting friends over and creating a theme to set the evening mood let just hope everyone is up for Tacos, games, and fun. Depending on the number of people you will expect will determine the size of your Taco Bar. Prepping for 10 people won’t make sense if only 4 people are coming after stuffing your face with Tacos you might not want them the next day.

I purchased all ingredients from my local grocery store and I used what I liked or would want in my Tacos I’m not a vegan this week so I didn’t load up on veggies I used a few here’s a list of ingredients I used.

My meat choices were Chicken and Ground Turkey. I baked the Chicken and then shredded it to pieces then grilled it. Tomatoes, Avocado, Corn, pickled jalapeño slices (optional), finely shredded Mexican style Four cheese blend, lettuce, sour cream, Ortega Taco sauce, Nacho cheese flavored Taco Shells, and Old El Paso soft tortillas.

Old Lady Gang A Southern Eatery in Atlanta, GA #KandiBurruss

Real Housewives of Atlanta Kandi Burruss – Tucker and husband Todd Tucker came together on an idea to share some home Southern recipes. I love their family traditional recipes and how each member of the family has their own recipe on the menu.

The cornbread muffins with Kandi’s homemade honey icing and syrup. I tried to get the recipes but you know how that goes. I walked away with no recipe.

I ordered the Old Lady Gang House Salad. This chicken is on point I need the recipe for that too. It was really good and my waiter made sure I was I was good and if he was too busy I made sure I asked with no problem.

Some of the credit goes to Aunt Joyce mother of Kandi, Aunt Bertha, and Aunt Nora who is the “Old Lady Gang” are the ones who taught Kandi to throw down in the kitchen. The Old Lady Gang is located right in the city’s Historic + Art District which is the Castleberry Hill neighborhood in Atlanta, GA

When you in Atlanta, GA make sure you stop by and show love. It’s not that intimidating you might be nervous for a bit but then once you warm up everyone is so laid back and respectful. All photos are my own.
