I love celebrating my Greek heritage with this super simple and scrumptious Sunday dinner. Prep time is a breeze and the ingredient list is relatively short for such a flavorful one-dish meal. Each time I make this I'm transported back to my ya-ya, who gave me the special honor of squeezing the lemons! —Lisa Renshaw, Kansas City, Missouri
A FRIEND shared this recipe with me many years ago.
My son-in-law loves these lamb shanks as part of a hearty meal with baked potatoes, a hot vegetable and fresh fruit salad. Of course, I include mint jelly on the side.

“This is a simple, healthy and filling meal with lots of flavor,” writes Sarah Christenson of Pensacola, Florida. “It's quick and only uses one pan! If you prefer, skip making the salsa and just toss in a can of Rotel tomatoes and green chilies with a splash of wine.”
I created this easy entree to convince my husband that seafood doesn't have to taste "fishy." He likes the flaky, phyllo wrapping as well as the bright green and red vegetables hidden inside of it. —Carrie Vazzano of Rolling Meadows, Illinois
While the lamb chops from Beth Tomlinson of Morgantown, West Virginia do make for an upscale meal, they are really fast and easy. “I tend to make them for special occasions, although they are quick enough for a nice weeknight dinner,” Beth explains. The chops are perfectly seasoned with rosemary and thyme and have a fabulous presentation sure to impress guests.
This is our favorite cookout dish, and it's very good served with a salad. This recipe originated here in my hometown in the 1930's. Our meat preference for speidis is venison, but we use others when it's not available.
