Lamb Osso Bucco with Tomatoes and Herbs

Lamb Osso Bucco

I was feeling like having some osso bucco, which is braised shanks of veal. But here in Kuching, certain cuts of beef like veal are more difficult to get. So I decided to prepare osso bucco with lamb instead.

It didn’t hurt that I already had some lamb shanks sitting in my freezer that I thought would be perfect to cook this dish with. Even though I’ve said before that I have a go-to lamb shanks recipe, I decided I had to try a new recipe to make this osso bucco.

Chicken Piccata Recipe

Chicken breasts, pan-fried in butter and olive oil, and doused in an addictive, savory, tangy sauce.

I’ve so broken my New Year’s Resolution already. “Two posts a week,” I said. Hah! I haven’t written a post in forever. I won’t mention how long. Poor Nate has had to fill in for my lack by writing all about our trip to Hawaii. In the meantime, he has been discreetly trying to prod me to write some recipes (ie. not nag me to write as I get perverse and even more won’t do it).

It’s not like I haven’t cooked anything new. I’ve just been so busy with work since getting back from our vacation that I have not had time to blog. Well, that’s not entirely true…when I am free, all I want to do is sit in front of the computer and play Zuma Blitz (it’s totally mind-numbing and addictive!).

But today, I decided I had to get going again before I lost all my writing chops. So here I am writing about a dinner I made a while ago and one I have made many times—Chicken Piccata.

So I had checked out FoodGal Carolyn Jung’s blog right before Christmas last year, when she had posted a recipe for this cookie. She said it was the one cookie that she did every year and she always got requests for the cookie. Her post was so compelling that I went out that week and got myself all I needed to make this cookie.

It was such a simple recipe! It is a little bit messy and gooey when rolling the cookie dough in the slivered almonds but the resulting cookie is a delight—a really yummy, chewy, almond delight. And the smell of the almonds when it’s baking will get you in the holiday mood like nothing else. The fragrance is so amazing!
