Lemon and Herb Roasted Chicken

Chocolate, almond butter and salted caramel - oh my.  These cakes are quick to make, gluten free, and the soft middle melts in your mouth - does it get better?

Stuffed chicken breasts sounds difficult and gourmet - not true. A fantastic way to renovate leftovers like roasted squash and extend a pound of chicken to feed a family. Very pretty morsels too!

This traditional Thai soup uses coconut milk, lemon grass and fish sauce to form a flavorful base.  The ginger garlic influence make it a perfect kill-the-cold  soup.  A popular family favorite.  We also give instructions for how to make this a vegetarian/vegan dish in the recipe. Enjoy!
