Choose from five of our all-time customer favorites!


Caprese Chicken with Parmesan Potatoes

Seared chicken breast topped with mozzarella, roasted tomatoes, basil and a balsamic glaze. Served with red potatoes roasted with Parmesan.
Caprese is a classic Italian combination of tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella cheese usually served as a salad or bruschetta topping. We’re adding our own twist and turning the combo into a topping for juicy seared chicken, while still maintaining the classic colors of the Italian flag.


Chicken Fajita Bowl wth Cilantro-Lime Rice and Chipotle Sour Cream

Spicy roasted chicken and bell pepper fajitas served over tangy, cilantro-lime rice drizzled with smokey chipotle sour cream.
Fajitas; a mash up beauty – some say they are Tex-Mex, some say they’re Mexican, and many other Latin-American countries also claim them as their own. Regardless of where they come from we love them! This beautifull combination of caramelized onions, peppers and sliced meats cooked over high, dry heat is an easy, healthy and a great make-ahead meal! Fajita is diminutive for the word faja; meaning “belt” or “strip”!


Hearty Braised Red Wine Beef over Mashed Potatoes

Tender top sirloin with onion, carrot, garlic and rosemary all braised in a red wine sauce and served over fluffy mashed potatoes.
This recipe shows off the basics of this classic, low- and-slow technique to demonstrate the depth of flavor that can be achieved with such ease. Don’t worry, we’ve also shortened the cooking time and made this hearty, comforting dinner weeknight-worthy. Pair this with a complex Pinot Noir or an earthy Merlot and cozy up!


Warm Chicken Curry with Fluffed Jasmine Rice

Tender chicken and caramelized onions in a curried-yogurt sauce over fluffed jasmine rice. Topped with fresh cilantro.
Ancient Indian Spices makes it easy to create our favorite Indian dishes in the comfort of home! Their authentic curry spice blend adds naturally warming spices to a tangy yogurt sauce – perfect for cold days. It’s so surprisingly simple to make that it easily ranks better-than-take-out status in our book.


Quinoa, Black Bean & Sweet Potato Buddha Bowl with Green Sauce

Hearty black bean, quinoa and roasted sweet potato bowl with tangy, fresh cilantro sauce.
The Buddha Bowl is the ideal vegan one-bowl meal! We loaded this one with superfoods -quinoa, black beans, and sweet potato – and added extra flavor with a zesty cilantro sauce. It is so easy to prepare, you’ll want to put this meal on repeat all season long.
