I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Honey and Thyme Roast Duck

If you are looking for something a bit special this little duck is a perfect dinner for two! The simple ingredients of citrus and thyme add just enough flavour, while the honey adds the right amount of sweetness without overwhelming the taste of the duck itself.

1 1/2 lb duck (yes, it's a little one)
1 lemon, quartered
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tbsps honey
sprigs of fresh thyme
sea salt and lemon pepper to taste
1 or 2 small onions, quartered

Quarter the lemon, squeeze one quarter over the duck then place them all in the cavity. Add the orange juice and tuck in a few sprigs of thyme. Salt and lemon pepper all over and place in a roasting dish along with the quartered onions.

Roast at 425 F for 25 minutes. Remove and baste with the pan juices, reduce heat to 375 F and return to the oven for another 40-45 minutes.

Next drizzle the honey over the top of the duck, sprinkle on more fresh thyme and roast an addtional 20-25 minutes.

Let your golden duck rest 10 minutes before carving.
