Herb Roasted Rack of LambThis is a great example of a special main dish  made with simple ingredients: meat, fresh herbs, salt, and pepper. It’s finished with a balsamic glaze, which sounds fancy but is made with just vinegar, sugar, and patience. (Allrecipes.com recommends four parts vinegar and one part sugar; for more details check here.) The final touch is polenta, something else that seems exotic but that you can probably find at the supermarket. The Inn & Spa At Cedar Falls – Hocking Hills Lodging in Logan, Ohio, provides this recipe; if you can’t get to their cooking classes, try it at home.
