Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Cornish Hens Proven#al Style


2 tablespoon olive oil
2 cornish hens; halved
1 salt & pepper
1 cup onions; chopped
2 leeks; small cubes
1 tablespoon garlic; finely chopped
2 cup plum tomato, skinless; cubed
24 olives stuffed with pimento
4 thyme sprig; fresh
1/2 cup wine, white, dry
1 cup chicken broth
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon saffron threads
1 tabasco
4 tablespoon basil; chopped

Heat the oil in a heavy skillet large enough to hold the pieces of Cornish hen in 1 layer. Sprinkle the pieces with salt and pepper. When the oil becomes hot, add the pieces, skin side down. cook over medium- high heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Turn and cook 5 minutes more. Add the onions, leeks, and garlic, and cook, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, olives, thyme, wine, chicken broth, bay leaf, saffron, Tabasco, salt and pepper. Stir and scrape the bottom of the skillet to dissolve any brown particles on the bottom. Cover closely, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove the thyme sprigs and bay leaf. If there is too much liquid, reduce the sauce a bit. Sprinkle with basil and serve with mixed vegetables.
