We love lamb chops
The savory flavor of grilled lamb is a delicacy enjoyed in cuisines throughout the world. And this recipe is no exception. Seared lamb chops are versatile enough for a casual weeknight meal, a dinner party with friends, or a special romantic evening for two. Just scale to the number of people you need to serve.
This dish requires a few tasks to be worked simultaneously, but you’ll find it all comes together at once. We added a recipe for grilled artichokes from the PBS Food website. The lemon aioli sauce really balances the intense flavors of the meat.
Make a light rice pilaf as a side if you desire. Enjoy!
Who doesn’t love a simple, fast, tasty recipe? You can prep this in 10 minutes and slow cook all day. Come home to a kitchen wafting of savory, beefy goodness. This slow cooker Mississippi roast is a family pleaser. It’s also great for busy weekends because you can have dinner ready and waiting, just add a quick rice pilaf, lentil, or lemon buttered pasta. Pair with a hearty healthy side like sweet potato, roasted Brussels sprouts, steamed cabbage, or greens like sauteed spinach or chard. YUM! Are we ready to do this?!
Cover it! Look at that slow cooker work’in for ya! Go have fun, there’s no need to stay in the kitchen!

The possibilities began whirling through my brain with relentless fervor: bacon cheddar potato salad, bacon cheddar biscuits, bacon cheddar scrambled eggs, bacon cheddar burgers. Mmmmm. You see where this could go right? You’ve gotta try this bacon cheddar biscuit recipe to see just how the smoky bacon marries with the melted cheese. The grilling with butter just soaks up the flavor into the doughy biscuits. Oh yeah.
Although not the typical made-from-scratch recipe I usually push on you, pair it with my somewhat homemade Savory Tomato Soup and you’ll be in cold weather remedy heaven. Or, at least pretty comfy.
Tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches go together like peas and carrots. The variations on tomato soup abound, but this is the version I created years ago as a wholesome immune system booster to pair with a Mushroom Grilled Cheese Sandwich, or even Bacon Cheddar Biscuits. […]

Scale this meatball recipe to any size for a quick and easy weeknight meal.
I love vegetables and creating salads from ingredients on hand is rarely a letdown.
