Real life: this was the best picture I could get the other night because I got home from work late (hence dinner was running late), Evelyn was crying (I think we have a teething baby), and I just didn’t feel like I could get my act together.
I mean, it’s not bad. I just had different visions of it. Oh well. It is still better than the first pictures I ever took of chicken thighs, which is the whole point of this exercise. (Goodness, I feel embarrassed just giving you the link to that.)
I have a couple of things up my sleeve for the blog in this new year, and one of the things I wanted to do is revisit some of my old favorite recipes, recipes that I posted in the very very early days of this blog, and re-post them with new pictures and oftentimes better recipes. There are so many recipes from the beginning of this blog that I love that never get any attention anymore and/or that I’ve forgotten about for awhile. So I wanted to give them some love and reintroduce them to you.
And first up is baked chicken thighs, a dinner that we have every single week because it is so easy and so good. That’s the thing about chicken thighs: the meat is so juicy that it’s hard to mess them up, and even doing something as simple as putting them in the oven results in a tasty dinner.
