I originally started this blog as a place to store tried and true recipes for my family. It didn't take long to discover how supportive and fun the blog community was and I became hooked! I rarely create my own recipes, but I still hope you'll enjoy the recipes that I find and tweak a bit.
Every Friday night my husband and I like to drop the kids off and go on some sort of a date. We would prefer to just eat out every week, but since we're living on a bit of a budget right now, we just can't afford to do that all the time. So instead of eating out, we've started staying in and cooking a meal that neither of us would normally do on a regular weeknight. It's been so much fun, and cooking at home without the kids is so different! It's so quiet, the house stays nice and clean, and I get to have uninterrupted conversation with my guy!
So for our first "eating in" night, we thought we'd try Elizabeth's Cornish game hens. I had never made game hens before, so just the experience of working with a completely different type of meat was fun. I love the mushroom stuffing, and of course, everyone loves bacon. These were a real treat, and a real novelty as well. Go check out the recipe, here, on Elizabeth's page, and stick around to look at the rest of her stuff too, she's got a fantastic blog!
