I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

Rosemary-Garlic Baked Chicken

This is a super simple way to cook a moist and flavorful chicken breast. I usually serve this with a vegetable medley of round potatoes, sliced cabbage and broccoli tossed with sesame oil, old bay seasoning and crushed red pepper. It's virtually effortless, and takes just minutes to prepare.

  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 1/8 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, cut into thin slivers
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 chicken breasts (I use skinless, boneless)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with nonstick spray.

2. Combine onion, vinegar, oil, mustard, rosemary, garlic and salt in small bowl. Mix gently with fork.

3. Place chicken in baking pan. Spoon the onion mixture on top of the chicken. Bake until the chicken is browned and cooked through (do not turn), about 30-45 min depending on the thickness of your chicken.
