Cranberry Orange sauce

There is nothing quite like the smell of a chicken roasting in the oven. I love to buy whole chickens, roast them in the oven, and then use the carcass to make chicken stock. It's a great way to stretch a dollar! Whole chickens are usually quite inexpensive, and I find with my little family I can get several meals out of one chicken, plus a couple quarts of stock. I love doing this in the wintertime especially, when I don't mind heating up the house for long periods of time. This recipe produces a juicy chicken with a beautiful crisp skin for me every time. The lemon, onion, garlic, and rosemary give it a great flavor and help it stay moist. My husband's grandma even puts an apple inside sometimes and that works great too!

white potato fries. These are definitely softer, but the taste they get as they start to caramelize on the pan is delicious! Enjoy!
