What is "rice vinegar"? How different from reg. white vinegar? Thank you

Rice vinegar is made from fermented rice and has a slightly milder and sweeter taste than white vinegar. You can find it at most grocery stores, but we suggest you call before you go! You could also substitute with white vinegar, if that's what you have on hand. :) Enjoy!

Herb Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce

Instead of cooking ham or prime rib for Easter, why not try something new this year? Our Herb-Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce may look and sound fancy, but it's really easy to do. It's basically a rack of lamb that's coated with herbs and spices before it's roasted to perfection. Just before serving, it's finished off with a mint-wine reduction. The end result is an Easter-worthy main dish that'll impress everyone at the table.
