Growing up, on almost every Sunday, my Mom would make roasted chicken. The Best roasted chicken. It was absolutely incredible and the whole family always looked forward to it. I vividly remember her braising it in a large pot and then letting the dish finish cooking in the oven. Each time she opened the oven to check on the chicken and pour the juices collecting in the pot over each piece, the fragrant, rich smell of good dinner would fill the kitchen. It took me a few years to get this roasted chicken magic right. All because I tend to be an impatient cook. I love quick meals. But Sundays (weekends and holidays) are for slowing down and enjoying cooking. The result: melt in your mouth, packed with flavor, juicy chicken that will makes your soul cozy.

This French Onion Roasted Chicken is combining two classic comfort foods into one incredibly indulgent and satisfying dish. Served with mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables, makes this cozy food and instant family favorite.

It’s time to bring Brussels sprouts back and in a big, delicious way! Tossed in bacon grease, spread on a baking sheet with fresh cranberries and roasted to perfection in just 20 minutes, this is a perfect side dish for  busy weeknight dinner or a holiday feast. Also, I think it looks pretty too.

Roasting vegetables brings out their rich and deep flavor. I prefer this way of cooking them above boiling (let’s not do that anymore!) and steaming.  While we grill a lot of them during summer, I always oven roast them when the weather turns chilly.

Oh, sweet potato casserole! Why do you have to be so ugly yet so absolutely delicious?! But honestly, photographing this casserole was a nightmare. It was also the reason I didn’t share this recipe last year. I make this casserole every year for our Annual Family Day and our Thanksgiving dinner yet never share it here on my blog. It’s just so not photogenic! But this year I decided that I just need to share this recipe with you because I want you to try it and love it as much as we do!

At least after the photos were taken, I got my reward. A plate full of this sweet potato goodness topped with gooey marshmallows AND praline topping. That’s right! This baby has two toppings because in our family we can’t decide which one is the best and should be the one.
