Amen. and yum.

(There was a recipe today in the Baltimore paper called for white AND red wine in a sauce for bay leaves, carraway seed and fennel seeds. imho way too many flavors for luscious lobster!)

Hey eileen

Don't you usually try the recipe before posting it?

I don't get it - If it was bad, why are you posting it? Maybe I am missing something...?

So these are good and another recipe was the one you didn't like? Or these are not good and you posted the recipe by mistake? They certainly sound amazing! I would like to try to make them, but not if they are not going to come out right - Is this your own recipe or one from somebody else? Please let me know - Also, are they appetizer style? Thanks!

With 4 oz of lobster per purse, Zmom, I would expect that it's a maindish, or maybe a first course, rather than an appetizer.

Only problem I see is that it says 4 oz lobster per purse, but then doesn't specify how many the rest of the ingredients are used for. Surely not a half pound of mushrooms for each purse, for instance.

If it didn't work out I suspect it's because the ingredients and procedure are a little too vague.
