Peanut Stew with Chicken and Sweet Potato: SO easy and SO delicious! Healthy too!

Weird blogger confession: you can make this dish with rice, rice noodles, or probably just about any kind of wheat-based noodle. So why did I choose ramen (aside from its general trendiness)?

Italian Inspired Lemon Chicken with Asparagus, Mushrooms and Goat Cheese: easy and so delicious!

I know this is kind of a rewind of the Southern Italian Lemon Chicken with Mushrooms and Zucchini I shared in early February, but that recipe was just too delicious to not play with.
