While your special someone is soaking out all of the cares of the world, your piece de resistance can be cooking away. What would be more appropriate than Herbed LoveBirds for your romantic dinner? This Cornish Hens recipe is not hard to make but it will certainly make a terrific impression.
Whisk wine, vinegar, garlic, pepper, dried rosemary and oil, blend well. Set aside 1 cup of marinade for basting. Add remaining marinade and hens to plastic zip-locking bag. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
Cut long green end from 2 scallions and tear each lengthwise into 2 strips. Using strips, tie together 2 sprigs rosemary and 2 scallions. Mince white part of remaining scallions and add to reserved marinade. Place rosemary/scallion bouquet into cavity of each hen.
Bake at 350 F, occasionally basting with reserved marinade for an hour or until juices run clear. Meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of thigh should reach 180 F.
