Lamb Shanks with Orzo
Orzo is a wonderful pasta that looks like large grains of rice. But it's actually made from semolina. It's delicately flavored and chewy, and absorbs any flavors it is cooked with, while retaining its firmness. Using flavored orzo adds a new dimension to the dish.

The lamb shank ends up tender and falling-off-the-bone delicious.

Practically everyone has heard of 'poppers' - tasty little cheese-filled peppers that can pack a wallop of heat. It's a fact - they make great party food or appetizers and are as addictive as potato chips.

Pork Chile Colorado
If there is such a thing as Mexican soul food, this is it - carne con chile colorado, literally "meat with red-colored chile sauce." For this year's Cinco de Mayo celebration, honor the true spirit of Mexican cuisine by making this flavorful and well-loved dish.

It's easy to see where this dish gets its name - from the deep, reddish-brown color imparted by the flavorful dried chiles that are it's most important ingredients. Dried ancho chile peppers are commonly used in this dish, and they impart a complex, almost chocolatey flavor that is out of this world. Other dried chiles, like guajillos, New Mexicos or even chipotles, can be used to add subtle nuances of flavor. It's entirely up to you.

Pork Loin with Morel and Ramp Stuffing
The morel-ramp stuffing is an intriguing departure from a regular bread stuffing. The stuffing makes an attractive design in the sliced pork. If fresh morels and ramps are out of season, using dried morels, reconstituted, and frozen ramp bulbs will work beautifully without compromising the flavor.

You will be pleasantly surprised at how good this pork tastes served chilled! It slices even easier when cold. It would be a good idea to make extra just for the leftovers.

Iceberg Salad with Fennel, Feta and Black Walnuts
To some, Iceberg lettuce is rather 'retro,' recalling bland, uninspired salads of the 50's & 60's. For many, though, it's always been something of a guilty pleasure - not as hip or trendy as mesclun or arugula. But iceberg lettuce has never quite gone away; it obviously has something that continues to appeal to many people.

Why deny it?
Iceberg lettuce is satisfying - mild in flavor, crisp & cool. It's a great supporting player for other more assertive, distinctive flavors, like salty feta cheese, thinly-sliced fennel and robust black walnut oil.
