Chicken with Red Wine Dijon Poached Pears

 

This recipe combines the sweetness of a poached pear, with the savory flavors of chicken broth, Dijon mustard and tarragon. I love the way the sweet and salty flavors compliment each other, especially when served with chicken and the peppery flavor of arugula.

This meal is easy and comes together quickly; the hardest part is peeling the pears. Continue reading “Chicken with Red Wine Dijon Poached Pears”

GrassFed Eggs Benedict Burgers

Breakfast, lunch or dinner, these eggs benedict grass-fed burgers will hit the spot! I like to eat grass-fed beef because the cows are raised in pastures, just the way mother nature intended. They only eat grass and other natural greens throughout their lives. What’s the alternative? Conventional cattle are fed grains and even corn, which aren’t part of a cow’s natural diet. These substitutes are used to get the cattle to market faster, not for health. Continue reading “GrassFed Eggs Benedict Burgers”
