Spice-Coated Rack of Lamb for 2


Stop what you are doing and go and get a rack of lamb, a can of Ghirardelli Cocoa and a package of your favorite light-roast coffee. This lamb recipe is to die for! You can store the cocoa and coffee in the freezer for future use, so I highly recommend splurging on the more expensive cocoa and coffee brands for this recipe.

Although this our favorite lamb recipe, I had to take a short hiatus from making it when I was three months pregnant. My high school friend Nancy flew out from Chicago for a visit, and I had made this for a "surprise we're pregnant" dinner. Unfortunately for me.....and more so for Scott (he craves this dish).... I bragged that night that I had not experienced any food aversions during my first trimester. No sooner was the lamb cooked to medium rare that I had my head hanging out the window for fresh air the entire dinner. It took a year before I could enjoy eating and cooking lamb again. Pictured left are the chops from that memorable night.

Moe's Famous Queso (Copycat Recipe)

After my dad retired from over 40 years of paper mill management, he did a short stint working at Moe's Southwest Grill before he and my mom moved down here to Maryland. After working a shift, he would often bring home Moe's famous queso and heat up their fresh tortilla chips in the microwave. I started craving Moe's queso, this unique white cheese dip packed an addicting heat that I had never had at any other Mexican restaurant. I started searching the web looking for the best copycat recipe and found the closest replica at  Seeded at the Table . I think it's right on the money!

Whole Foods Cracklin' Cauliflower

Whole Foods opened up across the street from our neighborhood. Like, literally, across the street. It has been a long time coming and highly anticipated, so when they finally opened their doors, I went THREE times on the first day! The ever-changing salad bar is our bank account's downfall. Every day at noon it keeps calling my name, taunting me with quick, easy, and healthy options for lunch when I'm hangry.   I always get a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a bigger receipt than I had hoped for. So, I decided that I would start making batches of these sides in my own kitchen so that I could enjoy them all week long without the guilt. You can purchase the Whole Foods Market Cookbook on Amazon! First up, one of my absolute favorites, the Indian inspired Cracklin' Cauliflower! It's so good that I recommend making at least a double batch! Download the Printer-Friendly Cracklin' Cauliflower Recipe Card

Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut

Bobby Flay's  Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut recipe  came highly recommended from my soccer friend Little Lisa. She has very good taste in EVERYTHING so I knew I had to try it after she raved one night before stepping out on the field. Easy to make and bursting with flavor, this fresh fish dish is a keeper!
