When life gives you lamb, it's time to go Greek.One of my favorite traditional Easter dinners is leg of lamb encrusted with rosemary, thyme, and coriander, with new potatoes roasted right in the pan. It's always wonderful the first night. But what about the next day? Cold roast lamb holds… MORE

About Me
Two working adults and a kid in school. Someone has to cook and that someone is usually me. *sigh*
My favorite things to cook
Whatever makes my family smile while they're eating.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I cook, they clean up after me. It's the kind of tradition I can fully embrace.
My cooking triumphs
No one has asked me to stop yet.
