Pita Lamb Burgers on the Grill

It’s time to fire up the grill and I did so with these great lamb burgers in pita bread.  I bought Bon Appetit’s Best Recipes 2015 and this burger from Anissa Helou was one of the recipes.  Of course you could always make these into patties and use regular buns.  Using pita bread was a … Continue reading

Irish Lamb Stew

This is an old recipe of mine and since this is “lam1”, or my first lamb recipe,  from my previous computer file, it is very old.  I use to fix this to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day but Corned Beef became the favorite.  Yes, I have a little Irish heritage (Maclean clan) but also Scottish, English … Continue reading

Spiced Meatballs with Sriracha Sauce

A merguez appetizer, Paris and David Lebovitz.  This is my special recipe to celebrate Fiesta Friday’s First Anniversary, or FF #52.  I was rather busy until mid-week co-hosting Fiesta Friday #51 along with Jhuls  so I was a little limited on time coming up with a new appetizer or beverage recipe to share.  I have … Continue reading

Juniper and Jalapeno Jelly-Glazed Lamb Chops

This recipe is absolutely yummy with the grilled chops and the Jalapeno Jelly glaze.  This might have taken first place over my recipe Lamb Chops in a Red Wine Vinegar With a Mint Sauce. The jalapenos in Michigan are just starting to turn red – maybe I should make my own jelly again… My antique tiger … Continue reading

Mint Sauce

Mint is one of my favorite herbs even though it can grow rampant in my  garden.  You just need the right spot for it where it has room to roam, or you grow it in a pot like I do.  The apple jelly and mint go together well and I like to serve it over lamb … Continue reading
