Easter Feasting

We had the most delicious meal to celebrate Easter, that I just had to share the recipe!  This was my first real go at cooking lamb, but I was thrilled (and a little surprised) at how well it turned out.  I figured thousands of reviews and a 5 star rating on the New York Times food blog was trustworthy enough for me to try it.

See that crusty brown crust?  Turns out slathering a piece of meat in organic herb butter is a really, really good idea!  Kerrygold butter making my life better once again.

For the golden yukon potatoes, I tossed them in extra virgin olive oil and a generous helping of salt and pepper, then baked them at 425 degrees for about 40 minutes, tossing them once midway.  I did the same thing with the broccoli and it had a great flavor.

If you decide to make the lamb yourself, let me know how it goes!  You can get the recipe here.

Happy Easter!  He is Risen!
