Rosemary and Cinnamon Roasted Leg of Lamb

I believe this is only my second time working with lamb so I'm proud to say that I didn't ruin it! I don't always work with expensive cuts of meat or fish because 1) I don't justify splurging on myself and 2) I feel spoiled "experimenting" with these cuts, especially fish when they are so easy to ruin/over cook.

That being said, when I'm visiting my sister in Toronto, I feel totally justified in spending 30 bucks on a roast that will feed 4-5 people. The other thing is, being a TSR has the advantage of knowing all the deals in every single grocery store so sometimes I can buy ribs at $2/lb or prime rib at $4/lb.

Blue and Pink / Chocolate and Vanilla Macarons

Instead of cake, I made these for my 23rd Birthday. I wanna say "damn I feel old" but I know it would probably offend a lot more people reading this. It has really been a week long celebration, especially with the May Long and all. I took the Friday off work and just wondered around downtown Toronto and chilled.

Saturday I spent the entire day baking these babies. To be honest, I haven't blogged in so long that I didn't know if I had it in me anymore...what if I don't remember how to bake anymore? or what if the last time I succeeded was just a stream of good luck.
