Snowflakes & Stockings

Cannot believe there is less than a month of 2014 left – this year has flown by way too fast. Working full-time really does seem to speed up the clock.

Beer Can Chicken

Hello all! My sincerest apologies for the blogging break during the past few weeks. I recently just wrote my board exams and the few weeks leading up to the exam marathon were not too fun, to say the least. Though they’re all over now, it hasn’t completely sunk in yet because the results won’t be available for another six weeks or so. Oh well, celebrate in between I guess!

It was the strangest concept – who would have thought to put a half-full beer can into a whole chicken and bake it? I’ve seen this done before on barbeques, but I just never thought of trying it in the oven. That’s where Google came in – apparently Guy Fieri had this all figured out years ago! Check his recipe out here.
