When I was single, I still made sure to make my little holiday dinners. Of course I didn’t have the big glazed hams, or the huge turkeys, but honey I still ate a nice holiday feast. I would make myself a small serving of macaroni and cheese greens, yams, and a delicious Apple Stuffed Glazed Cornish Hens. Cornish Hens are rather easy to make, just think of them as small chickens. This recipe is hard to mess up. It requires very little ingredients, and they are simply delicious.
