    Dawnab's Note:

    Looking for that one special recipe for a romantic New Years, anniversary or Birthday celebration? Well, look no further. When I want to impress, I made this wonderful lobster dish. Yes, lots of butter, this is not a low fat or low cholesterol meal. Consider this your twice a year splurge! compliments of Intermezzo Magazine.
