comment How long should I cook boned shoulder of Lamb for?
No it isn't, I do it all the time. New Zealand lamb may have the fat trimmed off, but here in the UK shoulder is still a fatty cut. If you cover the pan with foil you don't need to baste as it prevents the surface from drying out too much.

comment What is a good way for a beginner to start sous vide cooking?
Sure: something along the lines of 'what foods can I cook in a sous-vide in under 2 hours' might be more appropriate.

comment What is a good way for a beginner to start sous vide cooking?
Unfortunately recipe requests are off topic here at Seasoned Advice, because they are essentially subjective. Google will be able to provide you with plenty of sous-vide recipes. I would suggest something involving chicken breasts as they cook in around 45 minutes in a 60ºC sous-vide bath.

comment Why did my Tiramisu Cake become dry?
This isn't tiramisu though, it's a normal sponge cake with tiramisu flavours.
