Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

How come you do not have the calories and other info for your recipes. A lot of them have cheese in them which would add the calories?

I think I'll try this with broccoli, if I don't have any asparagus. It sounds good.

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.
