Exploring Close to Home

Today I went on a short bike ride after work. It was only a 45 minute ride, and I didn’t ride very far, but it was wonderful. Just a few miles past school there is all of this lush farmland. The sky was a mesmerizing blue and each landscape looked like it was from a picture book. There’s nothing like exploring close to home.

















Summer Chicken

Here’s an easy chicken recipe that’s perfect after a tiring summer day. It was so easy to make, and allows for playing around with flavor.



  • chicken
  • salt
  • pepper
  • parsley
  • honey






Preheat Oven to 400 degrees. Put a piece of parchment on a pan and place the chicken on the pan. Marinade the salt, pepper, and parsley. I used more pepper than salt because I enjoy the flavor more, but that’s my personal taste. Play around with it! Next put a generous drop of honey on the chicken. Again, more honey results in sweeter chicken. Cook the chicken for 35 minutes. Time may need to be adjusted depending on the oven, chicken, etc.
