Leviticus 1: Three meat recipes fit for a Lord

When we last left the Israelites, they were following the Lord and his Holy Cloudmobile through the desert. One fine day, the Lord parked his cloud over the Tent of Meeting, as He was prone to do, and gave Moses some guidelines for sacrifice, but more importantly, three surefire recipes that are guaranteed to please the Lord!
