Cherry Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Be sure to make the fudge sauce to go on top!

Yield: 10-12 two-scoop servings

Grilled Pork Chops with Arugula Noodles

I was feeling a little adventurous this weekend and decided to experiment a bit.  It's not everyday that you decide to turn vegetables into noodles, and we were quite happy with the outcome.

We did 100% arugula in the noodles.  Next time we'll do a 50/50 split between arugula and spinach to soften the taste a bit.

Yield: 6 servings
