      Colorful Eats: Mustard Roasted Chicken Thighs

      Colorful Eats: Mustard Roasted Chicken Thighs - JulRe Designs LLC

      In our current times, I hope that we all can recognize when we need to step away from it all to rejuvenate and refresh. I'm sensing that it's almost that time again for me. It's critical at any time to be able to take a few steps back from it all but especially now when the world is getting better but is still a bit chaotic and frenzied. So my wish for you everyday is peace and harmony - may you find you find your way to your own Shangri-la. And good food.

      Before I make any moves, I just had to share the Home Chef Extraordinaire's latest flavorful take on chicken. This time, he's using thighs but your favorite part of the chicken will do) and he's concocted a dish that's great for lunch or dinner and perfect for kid's meals. The taste key is the use of fresh rosemary. It adds a depth of flavor to the dish and with the spicy brown mustard, provides an aromatic tanginess that is oh-so palate appealing. As is always his custom, to keep the dish healthy and juicy, the preparation is done in an Air Fryer but this main dish can be prepared in the oven as well. While the dish itself is not extremely colorful, you must admit that the addition of steamed brussel sprouts and carrots all on my beautiful serving platter makes it all photo fabulous! You can find the fast, super simple recipe below:

        There isn't a color palette more exciting than Neon. Punchy, supersaturated hues never go out of style. From Brilliant Blue to Lime Punch to Super Pink, Neons were created to excite. I'm a child of the 70s and 80s who remembers having fluorescent neon posters and black lights that turned my outrageously loudly colored bedroom into my own personal disco complete with strobe lights and Donna Summer and Chic blasting on my record player. Back then, Neon was on trend and fashion statements in these megawatt colors were made daily. So are you already saying, "There's no way I can wear these hues"? I get it. Today, they get trotted out on the fashion runways every few seasons and as a lover of bright, bold colors, I appreciate that. But my commitment to this palette has been long lasting and I don't fear pushing the color envelope with all of that vibrance.

        If you dare, start with a little pop of neon with your basic neutrals for everyday. A belt or a purse. Maybe a cute sandal. Or better yet, go all in during your workouts like I do which is a great way to see that there is no need to fear the brightest of brights. There's a Neon shade(s) for everyone!
