Roasted Cornish Hens

  • 2 cornish hens
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Coat the hens in olive oil and rub on salt and pepper.  Roast at 425°F for 45 minutes-1 hour until juices run clear.  Let rest for 5 minutes before carving.

Apple-Cranberry Sauce

  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 cup cranberries

    Hi Abbie,

    I just read your post from July about saving paper. I agree with you – online banking can be a fantastic (and safe!) way to help the environment. I’m working with a green bank called ShoreBank to promote their Online High-Yield Savings Account. Please contact me directly at if you would like to know more about what they are doing to help save paper and be environmentally friendly. Thanks!
