I know I've been MIA for a week or so. I'm a student again and I've been busy learning about pastries and pies. I'm so excited to be in the first class at the new culinary school in my area. I really hope this makes all my dreams come true!

Now onto the post. I'm here to talk about lobster. Super sweet lobster drizzled with melted butter. It took me and my husband almost 9 years to make lobster at home by ourselves. His mom makes lobster for every Christmas Eve dinner. It's never consistent. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's undercooked, sometimes it's overcooked. I figured it was one of those difficult dishes to make, so I never tried to make it by myself. Boy am I sorry. These guys came out perfectly. Plus they were so easy! Warning: These are live creatures. I screamed like crazy trying to put them in the pot, so my husband had to do it. Also, you will get messy, but that's the fun in it.

Boiled Lobster

2 (1 pound) lobsters
1 cup white wine
2 - 3 cups water
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 stick butter
dash of hot sauce

Bring water, wine, and garlic to a boil.
Remove rubber bands from the lobsters' claws.
Drop into boiling hot water and cover with a lid.
Boil for 13 - 15 minutes until lobsters are bright red.
Melt butter and add a dash of hot sauce to butter.
Eat like Kings!

  1. Impressive! I don't know that I could get the bands off the claws without squealing like a little girl :) They look AWESOME!
