The basic recipe from the Albers Corn Meal box, we like this better than any other. It isn't as sweet as Marie Callendar's, we don't like jalapeno corn bread, etc., etc.

Braised Lamb Shanks with Garlic and Herbs Braised Lamb Shanks with Garlic and Herbs

 

From the Union Square Cafe cookbook, I first had this with Sue shortly after the restaurant opened (which was a long time ago). They served it with Fagioli Alla Toscana and I had a glass of Qupe Syrah with it. It was one of those meals you don't forget. We've made this numerous time, for large crowds and small dinners, and it's always a winner.

Another recipe from Piret's, this is a good savory appetizer that works well for a crowd.

Very nice, refreshing salad from the original chef when the Occidental Grill in Washington, DC first opened. Hasn't been on their menu for years so I'm glad I got the recipe when I did.

My mother and Eleanor Lovett made these frequently. I loved them as a kid and I still do. You can make them on English muffins or sourdough bread.
