Easy Oven BBQ Chicken and Red Potatoes

Easy Oven BBQ Chicken and Red Potatoes is a simple and delicious meal made by baking chicken leg quarters basted in barbecue sauce alongside seasoned potatoes.

I like to buy chicken leg quarters because they're so economical and the meat is always so juicy and tender.  We love to cook them on the grill, but (boo hoo!) my grill is temporarily out of comission.  We grill a lot in winter here in Florida, so it's a major bummer.

Luckily, there are recipes like this one, that can give me the barbecue flavor that I'm after without using the grill.  There is nothing fancy about this recipe.  This one is super simple, super basic, and super delicious!  Just easy cooking and easy eating. Barbecue is such a familiar and comforting flavor and everyone in my fam loves it!

I do love trying out new recipes and new cooking techniques, but sometimes it's nice to make something no-fuss like this.  It's a simple seasoned baked chicken and potatoes that you could make it with your eyes closed!

Avocado Baked Eggs

Avocado Baked Eggs are made by filling creamy avocados with eggs and then baking them in the oven until the yolk is set to your liking.

Hello there creamy, dreamy, new favorite breakfast.  This awesome idea is not mine.  I've seen it on Pinterest over and over and over again.  Have you seen it before?  Doesn't it look and sound super yum?  Mmmm...does to me!

I've been meaning to give it a shot for quite some time now, but I keep forgetting to add avocados to my shopping list.  I actually didn't remember to buy avocados this time either.  My husband bought them!  Occasionally I'll ask my hubby to stop at the store on his way home from work and I'll give him a small list.  Sometimes he'll see something not on my list and he'll pick it up on a whim.

This time, avocados!  Works for me.  I love them!

Do you like tuna?  I like tuna.  It was the first fish I ever really liked as a kid thanks to tuna sandwiches.  And then as an adult, tuna was the first fresh fish filet that I really enjoyed.  Mmmmm...I fell in love with blackened tuna ceasar salads when I worked at a little beachside cafe after collge.   So yeah,  I'm a tuna fan!

Slow Cooker Sticky Chicken Wings

Slow Cooker Sticky Chicken Wings are finger-licking good, slow-cooked, easy to make wings that are covered in a sweet and tangy sauce and then sprinkled with sesame seeds.

Oh, delicious chicken wings, how do I love thee?  Let me count the ways.  Haha.  Don't you just love wings?  They are the epitome of bar food, an appetizer everyone loves to eat, and perfectly suited for customizing with your favorite saucy flavors.

We were ordering them take-out for a while there, but then they started being delivered in less than desirable conditions.  Either too soggy, too greasy, too rubbery...just not good.  That's why I've decided to start making them more often at home.  I, myself, am a fan of teriyaki wings, while my honey enjoys buffalo wings.

I have loved seafood for quite some time now.  When I was little, all I would eat was breaded clams, sometimes shrimp, and the occasional catfish nuggets made homemade.  Oh, and fish sticks from a bag, but they don't really count as real seafood, am I right?

Once my taste buds matured, a whole ocean of seafood opened up to me and I discovered that I love scallops.  My mouth waters just thinking about them.

This dish is like perfection on a plate if you love scallops like I do.  That golden crust on a perfectly seared scallop is to die for.  The delicate sweetness with the crispy sear is irresistible, don't you think?

Cinnamon Crunch Butternut Squash Muffins

Cinnamon Crunch Butternut Squash Muffins are super moist muffins with a spiced roasted butternut squash batter and a crunchy cinnamon sugar top.

These superbly moist little muffins came about a bit by accident.  I knew for sure I was making muffins today.  I recently bought a silicone muffin pan and a silicone mini muffin pan and they've been begging to be baked in ever since I got them.

I decided that I was going to attempt a squash muffin...butternut squash, to be exact.  I've been kicking around a butternut squash (well, not really kicking because who kicks a squash?) that I picked up at the store over a week ago.  It was starting to look a little rough, with a few nicks in the skin from the "kicking".

Crispy Sweet Potato Fries

This recipe makes perfect Crispy Sweet Potato Fries by adding one simple step before deep frying them until they are golden and crispy.

Crispy Sweet Potato Fries | thetwobiteclub.comDISCLAIMER:  Horrible photo alert!  I managed to snap this one before my family devoured them all.  I'm not even publishing it full size because it's so awful.  I'll update with a better photo the next time I make them...if they last long enough!

Have you ever tried deep frying sweet potato fries only to have them come out either burnt tasting or simply soggy?  That is what has happened to me every time I attempted to fry them.

I do have a great Baked Sweet Potato Wedges recipe, but my husband loves homemade fries that are fried in oil.  No the healthiest route, but oh so good.  I have to admit, I love them, too.

I am beyond happy that I have finally found a sweet potato fry recipe that is a forever keeper!  The secret to the elusive crispiness?  Dunking them in a cornstarch slurry.  I know that might sound odd to some of you, but trust me on this one.  These fries come out gorgeous and golden in all their crispy glory.  You will not be disappointed!

Broccoli Tots

Broccoli Tots are a fun and healthy play on tater tots made with finely chopped broccoli in place of potatoes.

When I was pregnant with my second child, I had one major craving that far outshone any of the others.  I wanted broccoli.  Strangely, I was never a huge fan until then, but pregnancy can do some pretty wacky things to a woman.

And my pregnancy made me a broccoli loving fool.
