Key Lime Pie VII
Absolutely flawless and too delicious for such a easy recipe. At first I found it to be too sour and sweet when eaten by itself, then I added a bit whip cream and voila, the perfect mix of creaminess, texture, tanginess and sweetness. I am making another one to take to girlfriend's house. I did substitute 1/4 cup of Persian lime juice for the key lime juice because quite frankly one bag of key limes from Publix barely yielded me 1/2 cup of key lime juice. Supposedly if one mixes half lemon juice and half lime juice, the flavor profile can be very close to one made with real key lime juice, will try that when I have a chance. Key lime is way too expensive where I am from (like $3 for one-lb bag).

Rosemary Braised Lamb Shanks
My lamb turned out to be a bit bitter on the outside. I think it's because I have burned the garlic ever so slightly. I have used a $10 Merlot, which could also be a contributing reason. However the inside meat was simply tender, juicy and flavorful, albeit a tad too gamy, which I love however. I deboned the shank and returned the bone to the pot for boiling down the gravy. I think if I strain the gravy a bit, it should taste less bitter.
