  • Summary

    Easter is coming around the corner and we always celebrate the day with family, an Easter egg hunt, and a lot of lamb. Before I ever tried to cook lamb, I was “scared” of it because it seemed so exotic. However, this recipe is so simple and easy; anyone can make a delicious roast. You basically just pop the lamb in the oven, let it cook, and you are going to enjoy a heavenly meal. The best part is that the vegetables below the lamb soak up all the juices and flavor and are exquisitely “basted” while they are cooking. You’ll look like the best gourmet chef in town when you make my Roasted Leg of Lamb with Fingerling Potatoes, Carrots, and Parsnips and a Mint Sauce on the side recipe. Happy Easter!

    • 4 Tablespoons fresh rosemary
    • 3 cloves garlic
