Ok. I know I should totally just redirect everyone to PioneerWoman’s site because I have yet another recipe from her. MMmmmm…the taters are so good. They are my fav right now. They are easy, delicious, and full of flavor. You gotta try them. The cornish hens are good too. I found the recipe somewhere on the internet. I can’t remember where. Sorry for not giving props to the correct person.


Crash Hot Potatoes

Small, round new potatoes (I use golden)
Olive oil
Sea Salt
Black Pepper
Any Herb
1. Boil potatoes in salted water until fork tender.
2. Drizzle olive oil on a cookie sheet and preheat oven to 450 degrees
3. Place potatoes on baking sheet and smash slightly with a potato masher(should resemble a cookie)
4. Brush tops with olive oil.
5. Salt and pepper generously.
6. Sprinkle herbs on top(I like to use rosemary)
7. Place in oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden and crispy.

Yummy, Juicy Cornish Hens

4 tbsp. Butter
3 tbsp. Honey
4 tsp. Chili Powder
1 tbsp. Orange Juice
2 Cornish Hens, halved
Salt and Pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Melt butter and stir in honey and chili powder, mix well.
3. Stir in orange juice, salt and pepper, remove from heat.
4. Cut hens into halves, rinse well and pat dry.
5. Place hens in baking dish, skin side down, place in oven for 6-8 minutes.
6. Turn hens over and baste with all of the mixture.
7. Bake for approx. 45 minutes or until well browned.

And Voila…A Delicious Meal for Two!

Enjoy the feast,
