I try to always feature tasty recipes using everyday ingredients and ones that you will all enjoy and will end up making over and over again. I picked today’s recipe because it will give you some free time while its cooking in the oven to enjoy some time with your family or guests. This recipe below is courtesy of Alton Brown and Food Network.
