Whole Roasted Lemon Chicken

Sometimes on a wintery Hanukah night, as the candles burn inside it’s nice to sit around the table with family and friends and eat a simple and homey roasted chicken. This whole roasted chicken, with some extra bright flavor from lemons squeezed over the top, will hit the spot this Hanukah. I cook the chicken along with onions, carrots and potatoes, in one large roasting dish, so that all you have to do is carve it up and your whole meal is ready!

Pan Seared Salmon over Lentils

Pan seared salmon is both easy and delicious. This recipe stands out due to the delicious lemony herb butter that gets mixed into both the lentils and melted on top of the salmon. Placing the salmon on top of a bed of lentils can turn this easy weeknight meal into a company worthy meal. If you’ve never used French green lentils, with their firm and chewy texture, try them in this recipe.
