Delicious Recipies for Lamb

Updated: Jan 28, 2019

I was raised on home cooked meals and I wanted that for my family too!

We have always eaten home-raised meat just to know what is in the meat we are eating!

Lamb is just like any other meat that can be used for many recipies! It has a delicious flavor and it very versatile to use along with being very healthy for you Some times I just salt it and cook it just like beef or chicken without any spices.

These recipies are not too involved -- basically because I don't have the time to cook recipies that take a large amount of time! We are just too busy & I know that your are too!

I hope you enjoy the following Recipies but most of all, the time spent with your family while you are cooking! Get those kiddos involved to make it a family affair!
