Serving Lamb for Easter has become a tradition in my home, and every year we knock it out of the park. One of my favorite pairings with lamb is dried fruit and wine. I ground up dates and added stonefruit vodka and rosemary to create a paste. After baking in the oven, the paste set up into a crust that was chewy and went well with the lamb rack chops. Really yummy! The photo is awful – I can’t go back and fix it – but you can probably see how the crust set up.
- 1 rack of lamb prepped for cooking
- Large handful of dates
- 1 cup stonefruit OYO vodka (or plum wine)
- 5 cloves garlic peeled
- 1 shallot diced
- Salt & Pepper
- Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 375.
In the magic bullet or another food processor – drop in the dates, garlic, shallot, and alcohol. Pulse until smooth. Add olive oil to thin out. We want a liquidy paste. Not too thick or thin. Easily spreadable, but not sliding off. Add half of the rosemary, salt and pepper, and pulse more.

A rack of lamb makes an elegant display for a special meal. It’s not difficult to prepare, but you have to watch to make sure it’s not overcooked. The display of lollipop chops on top of polenta or even mashed potatoes is a great way to serve it individually as well. This is a savory presentation of a rack – and one of our favorite ways to eat it.
- 1 French Rack of Lamb Roast (about 8 or 9 chops)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 tbs of dried rosemary minced (or use fresh)
- 2 tsp ground thyme
- 1 tbs olive oil
- Salt & pepper
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Your butcher should trim the rack, so that it’s ready to cook. Sear the rack on all sides to seal the juices in. Place all of the other ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Then with a basting brush or your fingers, spread the herbs & spices all over all sides of the rack. Place in a roasting pan (ours was a glass pan). Wrap foil on the chop bones so that they don’t burn. I used one piece cover all the bones, but …Diana

I haven’t done a giveaway in a while and this Dole Fruit Crisps Cozy Kit giveaway is very appropriate for this cool spring-wintery weather we are having this week. My husband and I tasted the Dole Peach Crisps and they were decent. The fruit cups had diced peaches in the container with oatmeal crisp in a little separate compartment to sprinkle over top of the peaches, so that it’s like a peach crisp.
When my kids were little we gave them fruit cups in their lunches. It was one of the things in their lunch bag I knew they would eat. These fruit crisps wouldn’t be good for your just kids in grade school, but it would also be great for your college kids during their finals week too or to pack in your own lunch.
This giveaway comes with an infinity scarf, a pair microfiber fuzzy socks, and an apple crisp candle from Cuyahoga Valley Candle and 3 Dole Crisp Packs (2 in each pack)- Peach Crisp, Apple Cinnamon Crisp and Apple Pear Crisp .
So, tell me in the …Diana
I’ve tried lots of different instructions on how to hardboil an egg and some involve too many steps. This is the one that works for me.
Place eggs in the bottom of your pot with enough room around so they don’t bump and cover with water – 1 inch above.
Bring to rolling boil.
Take off heat and cover.
Let sit for 10 minutes.
Rinse off with cold water.
- 6 minutes for softboiled
-8 minutes for medium boiled.
This works – really it does.
If you’d like to try baking your eggs in the shell – Kitchen Whisperer has some instructions for that.Diana
I saw a fun photo of Deviled Egg Chicks on My Little Chicken Coop’s Facebook page, so I did a quick little round up. This will go great with my Deviled Egg Recipe Round Up Post that I repeat every Easter. If you have a fun photo of your deviled egg chicks or bunnies feel free to drop a link in the comments – usually frowned upon uninvited, but I am inviting.

So, my husband is drawn to things that start with the name Zombie, like all kids his age. Zombie Killer Cherry Cyser by B. Nectar Meadery is pretty darn tasty. We bought this at the Bottle and Barrel in North Market when we were searching for some fun drinks to add to our hard cider list.
You have to admit, this bottle is attractive for a Zombie loving fool. The ingredients: Michigan cherry juice, apple cider and star thistle honey – the taste – cherries, apples and honey. A nice crisp apple and cherry taste with a sweetness but not over the top too sweet and a light carbonation; you won’t be belching after drinking this. Very little foam, pours out pinkish with an orange tinge and a cherry/ honey with (maybe a little floral) aroma. I’m not an automatic mead fan because I think many are way to sweet for me, but this was very good …Buff
This is one of my favorite meals and I get to cook it only once or twice a year – once on St. Patrick’s Day [March 17th for those not in the know] and again when either the mood strikes me or I have special guests. Well, the other day we had special guests in and not only did I make this special dinner, we actually sat at the Dining Room table!
