Amanda, The temperature is supposed to be above zero tomorrow and I got so excited at the prospect that I made a summer chicken recipe for dinner tonight. It's very easy and very tasty. I say that it's a summer dish because the lemon in the marinade makes the chicken light and fresh and it's meant to be cooked on the barbecue.

I got the recipe from my mom who obviously got it from her friend Dolly since she refers to it as Dolly's Chicken. I would love if someone referred to a dish with my name attached to it. Preferably something chocolate.

Dolly's Chicken

4-6 chicken breasts

3 tbsp Olive oil

1 Lemon - squeezed

1 tsp Montreal steak spice

1 tbsp fresh rosemary

1 clove garlic, crushed

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Add the chicken, turning to coat each piece completely. Place the chicken in refrigerator for 30-40 minutes.

Grill chicken, turning and basting occasionally until the chicken juice runs clear.




My mom gave me a loaf of her Soda bread today so it became a part of our dinner. It is also a great recipe so I will provide it below.


Soda Bread

5 c graham flour or whole wheat flour

2 c white flour

1/2 c wheat germ

3/4 c sugar

1 qt buttermilk or whole milk + 4 tbsp vinegar

41/4 tsp soda

3 tsp salt

Combine all dry ingredients and then add milk.

Divide into two greased pans and bake at 375 degrees for 50 mins.
