Lemon Chicken

Tender and juicy Lemon Chicken beautifully roasted using an Instant Pot. Served with French Style Green beans, scratch made dinner rolls and mash-potatoes topped with homemade mouthwatering gravy. This kind of home cooking produces aromas from the kitchen that does not require announcing it is time to eat, because your family will already be there with forks in hand. I recommend preparing extra rolls to dip in the gravy.

Beef Meatballs

Homemade juicy, tender, tasty Meatballs with Spaghetti sauce and scratch-made Garlic Bread-sticks. I usually make several batches of these meatballs and freeze half of them for lazy days. This is an easy meal to prepare, if you know how.  Taste cannot be sacrificed by shortcuts and the sauce is more rewarding when made from oven roasted tomatoes. If your family loves spaghetti that will forever mark what good is supposed to taste like.
