Roast Lamb

One of my all time favorite meals is roast lamb. There is nothing better than tender, juicy roast lamb with mint sauce, roast potatoes and vegetables. YUM! The delicious looking roast lamb you see above is one we recently cooked…

Moroccan Lamb Stew

If you can get lamb stew meat, there is no tastier stew meat in the whole world! (in my humble opinion. But then again I do hail from a country where sheep outnumber people by a rather startling factor!) This…

Lamb Kofta w/ Yogurt Mint Sauce

Spaghetti Squash Bake

This is a recipe that I came up with when I was on the GAPS diet for digestive issues. The GAPS diet does not allow any grains, or any starchy root vegetables such as potato or sweet potato. However winter…

Shepherd’s Pie

So, I realize that Shepherd’s Pie doesn’t traditionally have cheese on top, but can you seriously imagine it without? It could just be plain old meat and mashed potatoes, but add cheese, and it takes it to a whole new…
