Rosemary Braised Lamb Shanks
This recipe was surprisingly easy and the results were fantastic (see uploaded photo). To thicken the sauce and add depth, I blended half of the vegetables and garlic, then added that mixture to the pot first. After the blended veggies browned up, I added the rest of the dices vegetables and followed the recipe as written. The sauce was velvety and bold in flavor. The next day, we shredded up the leftover lamb and make a ragout with the sauce over fettuccine. This will be made again many times in my house! One more tip: top the lamb with a simple gremolatta (minced garlic, parsley, lemon zest) to amp up flavor and finish off the dish like a pro!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
These were incredible! I followed the recipe exactly, except I added chocolate chips in addition to raisins. We loved these very much, I'll be making them again for sure!

Roquefort Pear Salad
this was really delicious and light. I used mixed spring greens rather than lettuce, and lightly poached half the pears in a vanilla infused simple syrup. Really nice compliment to a light meal.
