Citrus Glazed Carrots

When I was younger, my mom used to pour cheese on every single vegetable she made to get me to eat it, including carrots.

Recipe: Juicy Whole Roasted Chicken

When I found out my husband was such a picky eater, I decided to perfect some new simple recipes that he would eat. One of our household favorites is this juicy whole roasted chicken. Whole roasted chicken is really tricky to cook. To make sure it is really done, often the breast is really dried out. But, doing an overnight dry brine keeps the chicken moist and succulent.   Ingredients 1 whole roasting chicken (between 4 to 5 lbs) 4-5…
