How to follow Judys Foodies!

In 2011, we announced the retirement of Google Friend Connect for all non-Blogger sites. We made an exception for Blogger to give readers an easy way to follow blogs using a variety of accounts. Yet over time, we’ve seen that most people sign into Friend Connect with a Google Account. So, in an effort to streamline, in the next few weeks we’ll be making some changes that will eventually require readers to have a Google Account to sign into Friend Connect and follow blogs.


As part of this plan, starting the week of January 11, we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other OpenId providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. At the same time, we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.


We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google Account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.

We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.

Taste Like The Best Rotisserie Chicken, & Baked Potatoes,But It's Not Rotisserie!

                                                                         
This taste like you bought it from a Deli but you made it at home & right in your oven! This recipe is so EASY you won't believe it but I am not kidding, IT IS SUPER! I tried it with whole legs with the thigh attached, you may use breast & as you can see whole chickens! All must have bone in & skin on! & I rubbed whole baking potatoes with oil, wrapped them in foil & threw them in the oven with the chicken & they were perfection! EASIEST MEAL EVER!
1 Whole Chicken 3 pound to 5 pounds follow directions, larger chickens put the seasoning inside the bird or the long high temerature will burn the seasong. But this is incrediblely delicious juicy inside crispy outside chicken! SO EASY!
OR
Whole Chicken Legs with the Thigh attached Skin on & bone in
OR 
Split Chicken Breast bone in & skin on
Medium Sized Baking Potatoes as many as you wish to serve rubbed with oil & wrapped in foil.
Preheat oven to 500 Degrees.
Prepare potatoes as described.
Place chicken in a heavy pan with rim, I used my black iron skillet!
Season as you wish. I used Hess's BBQ Seasoning, a dry seasoning! Place chicken & potatoes in the 500 degree oven & then turn heat down to 465 degrees, Bake 7 minutes per pound. If using chicken pieces leave in at 465 degrees for 14 minutes. A whole chicken leave in the 7 minutes per pound, so a 3 pound chicken leave in for 21 minutes at that temperature, 4 pound chickens 28 minutes & 5 pound chickens leave in for 35 minutes. NOW turn the oven off & let chicken & the potatoes if you are making those in the oven for 2 HOURS, do not open the oven either! When 2 hours is up you will have HOT, JUICY, CRISPY SKINNED CHICKEN & LUSCIOUS BAKED POTATOES! I AM NOT KIDDING this is GREAT CHICKEN & POTATOES!
