We get asked all the time: What do you cook at home? Here's some inspiration from Jovan Stojanovich, our manager of email marketing:
This weekend I was watching an episode of a popular cooking show that featured a very simple technique for roasting chicken. Then I remembered that my grandmother used to serve Cornish hens to guests—so glam!—on special occasions. I put the two together for a simple and delicious dinner.
All I used was one onion, one bulb of garlic, some vegetable oil, a few lemons, and salt and pepper to taste. After chopping up the onion, I oiled the bird, seasoned it, and stuffed it with half the garlic (skins and all), and a few lemon wedges. Then, in a cast iron pan, I surrounded the bird with the chopped onion, the rest of the garlic and lemon wedges, and sprinkled a bit more salt and pepper over everything. I baked the whole thing in the oven, uncovered, at about 400° F until the skin was brown and crispy and the juices were clear.
I have to mention, too, that I watched Amanda and Merrill's video on carving a bird to help me with that part. And it worked beautifully!
