collage of delicious lamb recipes


I didn’t grow up eating much lamb. I remember my mother making lamb lollipops on occasion, but beyond that it wasn’t on the menu and usually just for my father.

Now that I am an adult cooking for my own family, we actually have lamb quite often! It’s delicious and can also be made a variety of different ways.

I know that lamb is generally considered to be more of fancy or elegant dish. I think that is probably because it is most popularly served for special occasions like Christmas. But don’t let that stop you from having lamb recipes any time of the year!
