Honestly Yum

Thank you, Maine.

Just imagine the first person to discover lobsteru2013the bright, red shellfish's bulging eyes glaring behind threatening pinchers entwined with long antennae. Our first thought would not be, "Dinner!" Technically, the ancient Romans and Greeks dined on lobster, but lobster experienced a resurgence in the 19th century with Maine spearheading the movement in America.

As Maine celebrates the Maine Lobster Fest on July 29, we want to join by saying, "Thank you, Maine" and (more importantly) by making some of these to-die-for lobster recipes.
