It's been awhile, but we've been working hard! Melissa answers viewer mail, drops some science, and duels to the death - all while cooking dinner for 2 and spending less than $10. Thanks, everyone, for your continued support. I'll try not to disappoint you.

4) Mix thoroughly and shape the mixture into two patties, about a half-inch thick.
5) In a lightly greased broiler pan, lay the lamb patties.

No story here. I just like to try "non traditional" foods every now and again. Really, it's whatever catches my eye at the supermarket!

Watch this video and make it tonight and you will have to make it next week and the week after that because its so delicious that you won't stop making and eating it.

Melissa, Congratulations on getting featured in Channel of the Day. It is wise that you take your pictures with food. Chocolate and Lamb pictures are looking great. You might want to change Tex-Mex and duck snaps. Great work. Joe
