My spice drawer got out of control. Slowly at first, but it picked up speed, and suddenly chaos.

The Legend of FU Chicken

I can’t believe I haven’t done my roast chicken yet. It is one of my favorite meals in the world. Right up there with steak, potatoes, and an arugula salad, if I ever am on death row. Anyhow. In our family my roast chicken… Continue Reading “The Legend of FU Chicken”
