There are currently two groups cooking their way through two different Dorie Greenspan cookbooks. One is Baking: From My Home to Yours and the other is her most recent book Around My French Table. The first one is more than half way through the book, so it is closed to new members. However, I was able to join French Fridays With Dorie. Yippee!!
I was so excited as I was reading through the group's blog trying to find out "what are we cooking this week?" Cornish Hens! Oh, oh, my last experience with them was not a good one and one particular friend will never let me forget that! As I am reading through the recipe it says something about that in order to cut the cooking time I must prepare it en crapaudine (like a toad!) and that I must "SPATCHCOCK" the hen! What??!!
