Pistachio Crusted Lamb Chops with Mustard Cream Sauce

This is the first time in weeks that I have actually cooked a special sunday dinner on a sunday! It was SO nice to spend a cozy afternoon in with my little family, and feed us all some yummy food. I even made the most AMAZING (ha! I sound like Gordon Ramsay) Chocolate fudge cookies, which I will have to post later!

Roast Lamb with Fingerling Potatoes

Easter is coming up this weekend, and i’m so excited because it’s one of my favorite holidays! My brother and sister in law are visiting from Utah, which means all of my husband’s family can celebrate together–and my mother in law is cooking! This is always a really good thing, but she hates lamb, which makes me sad–because I love it, ecspecially this time of year when it’s super traditional. More

Gordon Ramsay’s Shephard’s Pie

Gordon Ramsay’s Shephard’s Pie

When I was first married, I made my husband a really traditional, British Shepherd’s pie, and I remember his response to it like it was yesterday. He simply said: “Thanks. But please, don’t ever make that again!” I mean, here I am SO excited to share a part of my culture with him in making the food that I grew up eating- and was feeling so chuffed with myself at making my first ever Shepherd’s pie, and he threw it in my face. I don’t remember what I said or did that day, but I’m pretty sure it involved me wiping it off to reveal my laser beam eyes!!

It’s kind of interesting that now I live in America, I notice things about England I never would have thought about before. One of those things is how much lamb English people eat. My mum served leg of lamb with mint sauce at least once a month for a nice sunday dinner- [which I think is quite a traditional English meal]. They also serve lamb shanks and rack of lamb in nice restaurants. We eat a lot of lamb in Indian food, like lamb korma, lamb vindaloo, and lamb kofta. There’s also lamb kebabs, lamb gyros… I could probably go on, but the point i’m trying to make is, I always thought lamb was a staple meat alongside pork, beef and chicken… until I came to America where they hardly ever eat it.
