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!

BBQ Lime Duck (or Chicken)
Isn't this beautiful? This is how it started...
BBQ LIME DUCK
1 whole duck (approx. 4-5 lbs)
1/4 cup soya sauce
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
1 tbsp. plum sauce
1 lime, juice and zest
1/4 tsp chili flakes (optional)
Mix everything together, yes even the chili flakes (not optional in our house)
Marinade the duck in the sauce for 6-24 hours (but before marinading reserve 1/4 cup marinade for basting)
I didn't have an extra-large ziplok bag to marinade the duck in, so I used a large waxed cereal liner bag and a clip. (These things are handy for alot of things, like marinading and breading.)
Heat up your BBQ to 400F (or oven), and using indirect heat, bbq the bird. Discard the marinade that's in the bag and place the duck on the rack with a pan below the bbq to catch the grease. There's going to be alot of it!
You should cook the duck for about 20 mins per lb. Baste for the last 20 mins. Rest 15-20 mins before cutting. This one took 1 hr & 40 mins.
