Just thought you should know.
I’m not sure if ‘Wonderful Leg of Lamb’ is actually the name of this dish but it was the best I could do with the help of Google translate.
The recipe is in Icelandic.
It’s from an Icelandic magazine.
I don’t read … Continue reading.....
We had a lovely slow-roasted leg of lamb for Easter dinner…. as guests of friends.
What a treat!
I made this last week.
Since I have learned how to properly cook white asparagus I have rarely deviated.
But I did with this….
Call it over-confidence, laziness, whatever you like but, luckily for me it worked.
It likely worked because it … Continue reading.....
I am being punished for all the many times I have bragged about my colds only lasting three days.
This is Day 6 and there is no hope in sight.
I do not take chastisement well.

The lamb was medium rare – ‘rosy’, and … Continue reading.....
There is a huge difference here in France between the meat you can buy in small butcher shops versus what is available in supermarkets.
I mentioned in a recent post that most beef from supermarkets is not aged at all and, as a result, is usually tough and lacking in flavor.
We know this.
We’ve lived here long enough that … Continue reading.....
It’s like not looking at an accident. I don’t want to but I look anyway.
After discovering that the bright pundits of the day decry using wine in the slow cooker one would have thought I’d learned my lesson.

I googled recipes for venison in the slow cooker.
In my defense, my sister always cooked venison … Continue reading.....
