Baked Lamb Chops

Hey there,

I wanted to share this delicious recipe with you fellow bloggers, it's super simple and it bakes in the oven so it's pretty foolproof.

I sure have missed blogging, I've just made zero effort to post anything.... it's sad really. I cook every. single. day. So I will try sharing my recipes here on my blog.

Here's the lamb all seasoned up and ready to go in the fridge to marinate for a few hours, I don't think this step is necessary, but I like to think it helps with the flavoring. ;)

  • 2 Lamb chops
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon thyme, ground
  • 1 Teaspoon crushed rosemary
  • 1 Teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil (enough to drizzle)
  • Some lemon juice
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about 16 minutes (well done)
Rub seasoning all over both sides of the lamb chops, place them in a dish or ziplock bag and refrigerate for a few hours until dinner time or overnight, again this step isn't necessary, but usually if I'm cooking lamb I have enough time to prepare it this way.

After the meat marinated for about 5 hours I put a cast iron skillet over medium heat, covered the bottom in olive oil, and waited until it was very hot before adding the meat. I seared each side for roughly 2-3 minutes.

After they browned up some I put the cast iron skillet in the oven for about 16 minutes at 400 degrees, this cooks the lamb to well done, if you want them more on the medium/rare side I'd only cook them about 10 minutes and check on them.

I think the rosemary and thyme really bring this dish together, this isn't a dish I'd make often, but I do enjoy cooking different meals such as this one.

Christmas Tree

With the new year approaching I have intentions of posting here on my blog much more often, I've basically abandoned it since I got engaged..... oops!

I wanted to share some photos of my Christmas tree this year, I kept it pretty simple

I know....... Such a sad tree, but I "fluffed" it as much as I could,
and at $10 for a 6'5" prelit tree I won't complain!

I love my tree, I think it looks so "wintery" being just silver and blue, and gosh those glitter balls are beautiful, they seriously steal all of my attention.

I picked up the ornaments, silver beads and canned snow at walmart, shocker, right?

Til next time,
