Cornish Game Hens with Blackberry Stuffing

Ingredients

  • 4 cornish game hens, cut along the backbone and spread out
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium-large onion, cut into medium dice
  • 1 cup blackberries, diced
  • ½ cup Blackberry preserves
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup nuts, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  • Heat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet. Saute onions until softened, about 7 minutes. Stir in blackberries, then spread mixture onto a large cookie sheet. Place hens over the mixture. Mix jam and vinegar, and brush all but a few tablespoons over hens.
  • Bake hens, brushing 2 or 3 times with remaining jam mixture and accumulated pan juices, until hens are golden brown and juices run clear, about 45 minutes. Turn heat from bake to broil, then cook until hens are spotty brown, watching carefully so they don’t burn, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Transfer hens to a large platter with tongs, then cut in half at the breastbone to create individual servings.
  • Return blackberry dressing to the oven and broil to evaporate some of the excess liquid, about 5 minutes longer. Stir in nuts and parsley. Serve.

Terriyaki Salmon Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 salmon steaks
  • ¼ cup sesame oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

Directions

  • Mix sesame oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame seeds, ground mustard, ginger, and garlic powder in a saucepan over low heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring until sugar has dissolved. Set aside 1/2 cup of marinade for basting.
  • Pour marinade not for basting in a plastic bag with the salmon. Squeeze air out of the bag, seal, and marinate the salmon steaks for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven’s broiler. Place salmon steaks into a broiler pan and broil for 5 minutes. Brush steaks with reserved marinade, turn, and broil until fish is opaque and flakes easily, about 5 more minutes. Brush again with marinade and serve.

Blue Corn and Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe 🍂 🍁

Ingredients

  • 1 cup blue corn pancake mix (or find a corn pancake mix of your choice)
  • 2 tbsps pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Sprinkle nutmeg

Directions

  • This is a slight different take on the blue corn pancake mix, adjusted for Fall Flavors. I find the corn meal gives it a nice crunchy texture as opposed to pumpkin pancakes with flour.
  • Instead of following the package, mix only the above ingredients minus the coconut oil in a bowl until lumps disappear.
  • Heat a pan to medium heat and melt the coconut oil at the bottom.
  • Scoop 3 tbsps or more of the mix into the saute pan and cook for 5 minutes or until the bottom is a golden crispy texture.
  • Flip each of cake and cook for about 2-3 minutes more until the center is cooked through.
  • Serve with your favorite butter and/or syrup. Enjoy!
