  1. I attended your presentation on April 10th and I really enjoyed this recipe. Thank you so much for your inspiring ideas on how us city-dwellers can enjoy more fresh produce from our backyards! Linda

  2. This was so good! I enjoyed the samples at the class the other night then went right out and bought the ingredients needed to make it for my own family. It’s on our menu tonight except instead of adding the chicken, I’ll be serving it as a side dish with Tri-tip. Delish!
