I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Classic Lamb Chops

This classic flavour combination of garlic and herbs brings out the best in these rich and savory pan seared lamb chops.

Ingredients for marinade:
4 tbsps avocado oil
2 tbsps minced garlic
2 tbsps fresh minced rosemary
zest of 1 lemon
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp dry oregano
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp fresh chopped mint

8 lamb chops
2 tbsps olive oil

Combine everything for the marinade and slather it on both sides of the lamb chops. Marinate for 30 minutes or overnight in the fridge.

When ready to cook first bring the chops to room temperature, so remove them from the fridge for 30 minutes before cooking. Heat olive oil in a pan to medium high heat and sear the meat 1 minute on each side.

Continue cooking until desired doneness:
1-3 minutes for medium rare, internal temp 130°F
2-4 minutes for medium, internal temp 140°F
3-5 minutes for medium well, internal temp 150°F

(Note that medium well is not recommended for lamb as they may become dry.)
Remove from heat and cover with foil for 10 minutes before serving. Lovely with mint jelly or mint sauce.
