1kg chicken drumsticks
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon all-purpose seasoning
Pinch of salt
2-3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Directions to cook:
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Pat drumsticks dry with paper towel (to get a crispier skin). Combine all other ingredients in a bowl. Toss chicken drumsticks in mixture to coat. Place drumsticks in a single layer in a baking dish. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Turn drumsticks and roast a further 20-30 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
Use mixed dried herbs if fresh herbs aren't available. 1-2 tablespoons should be plenty.
Life for us has been all about survival on a shoestring budget. I've learnt how to live on very basic (and cheap) staples and I cook from scratch and don't buy prepackaged mixes of anything. I've raised three happy and healthy kids and I believe that food is central to good communication and a happy and connected life!

Tales from the front line of parenting. These were some of the happiest days of my life.
I have an unpublished cookbook manuscript that lives on my kitchen bench. This is the collection that I have fed my family from for many years, all made from a core list of practical and economical ingredients. The manuscript is splattered with butter, flour and milk from daily use. It moves between the kitchen and the office as I edit and test-kitchen the recipes.
