Roasted New PotatoesFew things are better than roasted local potatoes, especially when you add one of our many special seasonings.Lentils with Beets, Walnuts and Goat CheeseI love lentils, particularly the French green Du Puy lentils. These lentils keep their shape and texture much better than most, and the color is more intense. Once you’ve had these it’s hard to go back to any other kind.
