Chicken, Goat Cheese & Arugula Roll-Ups

Adding greens to your chicken dinner is easy when you roll arugula leaves right into the main dish!

Artichoke Linguine

"We have fresh artichokes, so after harvesting them, I boiled then cleaned them (which took most of the time). I only used one flower, and it worked out well. A rather easy recipe and quick too!"


Sauteed Arugula

"This was a great recipe! I dislike arugula raw, and a bag of it came in my local organic box. I used the white wine and topped with mozzarella."


Garlic Shrimp with Asparagus

"OK, so some may think I'm overreacting here, but this was, hands down, one of the best things I have ever eaten! WOW."


Asparagus-Stuffed Chicken

"Words cannot describe how much I loved this chicken! Everything about it was perfect. Who knew stuffing chicken could be so simple?"


Spinach & Cheese Manicotti

"We also added sauteed mushrooms to the filling. Excellent stuff! I've never done manicotti before, and this was simple and quick."

"This is fantastic! Where I live, rhubarb is a big thing, but who'd have thought that rhubarb could be elevated from pie or cobbler status? Well, I'm here to tell you it can!"


Spinach & Cheese Curry

"I really enjoyed this. It also gave me an excuse to make paneer. I love spinach in any form, and this was delicious."


Red Lentil, Carrot & Coconut Soup

"I love this recipe! I've made it six or seven times in the last couple of months, and it's tons of fun to adapt, plus it turns out amazing every time."
