Grilled Poussins with Lemon Herb Butter
Courtesy of epicurious.com
This is the ideal way to prepare poussins, since there are two safeguards against their drying out (always a risk with small birds). The herbed butter slipped beneath the skin melts, basting and flavoring the meat as it cooks; the gentle, indirect heat lightly chars the skin without toughening the meat. As a result, every bite is juicy and perfectly seasoned.
1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) unsalted butter (1 stick softened and 1/2 stick melted and cooled)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
1 1/2 tablespoons loosely packed finely grated fresh lemon zest
3 1/2 teaspoons fine sea salt
1 1/4 teaspoons black pepper

Long Island Roast Duck
Recipe and Photo Compliments of en.wikipedia.org
Long Island roast duckling is part of the regional cuisine of eastern Long Island, New York stemming from Long Island's thriving duck-farming industry which began in the late 19th century.
According to Alton Brown, host of the Food Network's Good Eats, duck farming got its start on Long Island after an American businessman touring China in 1873 bought 25 white pekin ducks and shipped them to Long Island. Only nine survived the trip but those nine reproduced quickly and their descendants eventually found themselves on Long Island's numerous duck farms.
White pekins (also called Long Island pekins) now represent 95 percent of the ducks sold and consumed in the US and are raised on farms in many ...

Paul's Bacon-Wrapped Grilled Quail with Bourbon-Pepper Jelly Glaze
Recipe and Photo Compliments of Emeril Lagasse, Emeril's Food of Love Productions, 2008
I live in Southwest Missouri and my husband has qual hunted for years. In 35 years of marriage I have only fixed quail two ways deep fried and baked. I was getting so tired of these two methods I didn't want to see another quail. When I tried this recipe I thought it was wonderful and I can begin to enjoy them again. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I used my daughter-in-law's homemade pepper jelly.
The meal was very good and inexpensive. The other thing I like about it was you used things that you normally have on hand
8 quail, about 5 1/2 ounces each, dressed
1 teaspoon salt

World's Simplest Thanksgiving Turkey
Recipe and Photo courtesy of www.foodnetwork.com
First time making turkey and I have to say that this is a very straightforward recipe with great results. I made a 14 pound bird and stuffed it with green apple halves (the apples serve as a cranberry sauce alternative when done. Turkey was golden on the outside and juicy on the inside. After I basted and removed the foil I only cooked for 45 minutes at 425 degrees to avoid burning and the turkey was still fully cooked through. This will definitely be my go to turkey recipe going forward!
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Pull the neck and giblets out of the cavity; ditch the liver and save the rest of the giblets for gravy.
Dry the turkey with paper towels, then season ...
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

This version of the ultimate feel-good food, homemade Chicken Noodle Soup, is chock-full of seasonal vegetables like leeks, carrots, celery, and onions.
