    Super! Guess what's in my fridge? Two gorgeous cornish hens. I was going to use them for my recipe "Chicken Tabaka", but now I am not so sure anymore... :) Thanks for a great post!

    I do like cornish hens and it has been awhile since I cooked them. This recipe sounds very good so I will try it the next time I do the hens which may be this week since I saw this, lol.
