I love lobster. It doesn't matter what season it is, or even what time of day. Whenever my dad and I go out to dinner, if there is lobster on the menu, you can be sure that I'm ordering it. It's almost embarrassing how easily I can take down a 1 1/2 pound lobster. Sadly, I don't have the means to be spending $30 on one meal, but good ol' dad does. Over the summer, my sister decided to make lobster at home, and I realized they're so easy to prepare that even an amateur chef like myself can make them at home without emptying my entire wallet.

Steamy Kitchen's Jaden Hair offers two simple and delectable recipes that I just can't wait to try: Butter Poached Lobster with Fresh Tomatoes, and Lobster Mac n' Cheese.

Pictures accompany each step, making execution of these dishes easy. Useful tip from Jaden: instead of using a traditional cracker, she uses sharp kitchen shears to get the meat out of the shells cleanly and without any juice squirting everywhere.
