One of the sheep at Pennsbury Manor in Morrisville gave birth to triplets yesterday, an unusual occurrence. Pennsbury Manor is the recreation of William Penn's country home, and it has a farm with 14 sheep in addition to cows, horses, chickens and geese. Earlier this week, a second ewe gave birth to twins and a third one had a single lamb. This is Pennsbury's first set of triplets, and all were healthy.

I'm a lamb lover all year long, but in springtime, my craving for chops, shanks, and kebabs hits prime season. It's a good thing local chefs are eager to indulge with an endless variety of interpretations, ethnic spins and techniques, from brines to braises to wood-smoking braziers. Of course, there's nothing wrong with a classically roasted rack. But for these more unusual examples of flavorful lamb cookery, I'd suggest leaving the mint jelly at home.     CORIANDER So many of my favorite lamb dishes come from local Indian restaurants, topped by the coconutty lamb chettinad at Tiffin and the pastry-sealed lamb dampakht curry pot pie at King of Tandoor.

'AS the Palaces Burn" is not a typical life-on-the-road film, or, at least, it didn't turn out to be. Instead, the film, which will have its world premiere Sunday at the Trocadero, is a gripping look inside a band in crisis, with its lead singer fighting to stay out of prison. As the metal band Lamb of God was touring the world in support of its seventh studio album, "Resolution," accompanied by Philadelphia filmmaker Don Argott's crew, frontman Randy Blythe was arrested in June 2012 in Prague, Czech Republic, and charged in the death of a fan who had suffered fatal injuries at a concert two years before.

In many cultures, lamb, not ham, is the traditional dinner choice for Easter. Why not make it yours? Boneless lean meat from a leg of lamb is under 600 calories a pound, compared with 800 or more for a ham - even without the syrupy glazed fat. Lamb is a also a better choice for people who need to cut down on salt. Not a bit of a roasted leg of lamb need be wasted. Today we'll show you how to make the most of that holiday dinner. HOW TO ROAST A LEG OF LAMB Don't remove the parchment-like skin (known as the "fell")

We have become a country of ethnic fads, whether we are creating an at-home Tex-Mex plate, a pasta tossed with just about any imaginable ingredient, or a quick Oriental stir-fry. All of these ethnic cuisines have expanded our cooking repertoire and have given us a thirst for more exotic fare. The foods of Morocco, an interesting blend of Middle Eastern, French and African, are just beginning to filter into the American consciousness. One of the best-known ingredients from this culture is couscous, a mixture of semolina flour with a texture somewhere between grits and rice.

The rack of lamb is no longer on the menu at the Gourmet restaurant. David, the lone waiter in the room, pauses breathlessly to explain that the price of lamb got too high, but that the rack is available at $19.50, and that it is done with a coating of bread crumbs and Dijon mustard. Forget the price. Order it. Get it done medium rare so that it's pink and juicy. Scrape away the bread crumb-mustard glop and enjoy. The lamb was the highlight of two visits to this curious Northeast establishment, where the menu seems culled from the back issues of Good Housekeeping, circa 1964.

THIS IS A 21st-century retelling of the parable of the lion who lies down with the lamb. In our story, the lion is state Rep. Mark Cohen, the longest-serving member of the state Legislature. The lamb is Jared Solomon, his challenger in tomorrow's Democratic primary. Cohen has been in office since 1974, almost as long as I've been at the Daily News , but he has a much better expense account. He represents the lower Northeast - Castor Gardens, Lawndale, Oxford Circle, Lawncrest, Burholme, Summerdale and Wissinoming.

Many are the times in this column that I have lamented the unfortunate fate of lamb in this country. Over the years, I have pontificated on the prejudices against lamb, particularly by many of my fellow Midwesterners from the heartland of America where it is possible to travel along miles and miles of meatcases and seldom see a lamb chop. I have chastised my fellow butchers for the abominable job most of them do when it comes to cutting up a lamb carcass. Well, while I've been babbling about it, one butcher did something about it!

Queen Village's loss is a Rittenhouse Square adventure eater's gain now that David Ansill, who this summer sadly shuttered his eponymous bistro, Ansill, recently landed at Ladder 15. The adventurous chef, noted for his talent with spare-parts cooking, is a major kitchen upgrade for this former firehouse-turned-trendy Market Street happy-hour hall. The menu of bar snacks and small plates covers plenty of Ansill-esque hits, from those kimchi-spiced Korean tacos to braised pork belly BLT's and decadent burgers topped with short ribs and a side of marrow bone.

March came in today like a lamb - and a very parched one at that. Today's forecast high of 65, under sunny skies, is 20 degrees above the 45- degree average high for this time of year, said Accu-Weather meteorologist Chuck Jones. Tonight's expected low of 50 also is well above the average low of 28. Mild temperatures are expected to continue through tomorrow and Sunday with highs of 65 and 60, respectively. But it won't be dry. Jones said rain will begin late tonight, continue into tomorrow, and possibly hang around into Sunday.

Most cultures have traditions and rituals that herald spring. Who isn't grateful for signs leading toward a season of abundance and growth after the scarcity of winter? Many of these traditions feature eggs, from traditional Easter egg hunts, to the Cimburijada festival of scrambled eggs in Zenica, Bosnia - where 1,500 eggs will be cooked for the town to share the official moment spring begins - to Egypt's Sham El-Nissim holiday, celebrated back to the time of the pharaohs with spring onions and colored eggs.

You have to be one hungry caterpillar to be a restaurant critic. By conservative calculations, I ate 300 meals out last year for Sunday reviews, Good Taste features, Crumb Tracker clue-hunting missions and other stories. That means I tasted somewhere around 2,200 different dishes over the last 365 days, so imagine trying to whittle all those great (and some not-so-great) food memories down to the 15 best bites. Yeah, I know . . . tough work. But it's really hard! It was such a great chapter for Philly restaurants (food carts, cafés, bakeries and cheese shops)

CHEF BEN FORD has always thought outside the oven. Ford started cooking holiday dinners for his family when he was 12. He recalls the year he made salmon in the dishwasher. "It was a recipe that was going around in the '70s," he said, "I remember wrapping it in foil and putting it in the top bin and turning it on some cycle or another. My family seemed to like it. " Always a culinary tinkerer, the future chef was forever devising kinetic doodads that would turn the oven on and off or set some foodie notion in motion.

A few years ago, Tiffany Beveridge was contemplating whether she wanted to have a third child. Instead, she gave birth to a Pinterest board. Titled "My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter," the page on the visual social-networking site was a place where the Landenberg resident and mother of two boys, ages 11 and 16, could simultaneously indulge her longing for gorgeous girls' fashions and lampoon the culture the kiddy-couture images encapsulated....

Late in Week 4, when starting quarterback Connor O'Keefe went down with an injury and backup Matt Szczypiorski was unavailable for the same reason, Central Bucks East had no choice but to hand the reins to an emergency signal-caller. With that, Jack Lamb, previously a full-time inside linebacker and part-time running back for the Patriots, went under center for the first time since he was an eighth-grader at Holicong Middle School. "I was a little bit rusty at first, but I'm improving with each week," the 6-foot, 200-pound junior said.

Joseph P. Lamb Sr., 94, of Drexel Hill, a proud Irishman who never forgot his Philadelphia roots, died Friday, Sept. 26, of respiratory failure at Springfield Hospital in Delaware County. Born and raised in Southwest Philadelphia, Mr. Lamb was a 1937 graduate of West Philadelphia Catholic High School for Boys. While there, he played football, baseball, and basketball for the Connell Spades. He was a resident of Briarcliffe, a neighborhood of brick rowhouses in Glenolden, before moving to Drexel Hill in 1969.

As Cristina Martinez heated a wide maguey leaf on the food cart's griddle, her husband, Benjamin Miller, reached into a warming box holding slow-cooked barbacoa lamb, and the earthy aromas of Capulhuac, Mexico, suddenly wafted over this South Philly corner at Eighth and Watkins Streets. "You want rib meat, leg, or spine?" asks Miller, assembling a one-pound package of moist flesh to be gift-wrapped inside the maguey leaf, with a pint of lamb consomme, spicy cactus salad, and a stack of fresh tortillas on the side.

MOUNT HOLLY There are plenty of ways to honor Black History Month, but Sunday at Burlington County College was definitely one of the tastiest. Top chefs and South Jersey natives Kevin Sbraga, a Philadelphia restaurateur, and Tim Witcher, a former executive chef who is now a culinary arts teacher, teamed up at the college's Culinary Arts Center in Mount Holly to give cooking demonstrations. Called "A Taste of Soul," it was part of the college's monthlong celebration recognizing the contributions of African Americans.
