The start of the new year is the start new resolutions. The first resolution of mine..was to update my blog!!!After 14 whole days with the start off the new year …theres been things that I am back to ..and one is that I’m back to baking  😉 But not that I would have time for orders…but just for my family and friends!Have heard on different types of roast chickens but had never dared to try out recipes just a bit sceptical on how it would turn out to be  😛 So when  Ali dropped in for one of my classes and gave  me a wonderful recipe on his mom’s fav recipe…I really had a reason to try it out …and it was a hit!

The traditional British and Irish meals mainly consists of roasted meat , vegetables  and  puddings. The English roast is also a main part of the Christmas dinner. The roasts can be done with beef , chicken , lamb and turkey.  As it’s the Christmas time, today’s recipe is the Cornish Soft roast chicken which has a crispy skin and the meat is soft and tender on the inside.
