Tonight... Christian's Hungry Man Baked Potato Soup

Recipe I made myself... I love experimenting with food... Even if it comes out bad. Learn by your own mistakes. Not a low-fat meal. This is comfort food.

Roasting a chicken...

My own recipe, and my first roasted chicken in the oven.

Opinion to come...

Note: My 1 and 1/2 hour chicken turned into a slow roaster (4 and 1/2 hours), because of my shitty oven. The chicken came out delicious, and moist. Boston Chicken runner up. Yum. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture. I was starving.
